Strengthening Our Containers

  • Chrysalis Institute 3527 Ellwood Avenue Richmond, VA, 23221 United States (map)

How do we carry grief that can seem larger than the world? In a really strong container. Grief and loss can hold some of the most difficult experiences imaginable and possible. When you’ve experienced loss so profound that there’s “no getting over it,” we can learn only how to hold and carry it. We can also learn how best to support and serve those we love who are carrying grief. Join author, professional counselor and yogini Karla Helbert for a day of connection and solace, learning, and experience.

Learn ways to strengthen your container so you can be better equipped to carry grief into the world and through life as well as support and serve others who are carrying loss.

Movement, meditation, self-inquiry, chant, connection, and basic ways of establishing personal practice and self-care, can help us become more able to bear what grief and life asks of us. We will explore how each branch of yoga — Jnana, Bhakti, Tantra, Raja, Hatha, Karma — uniquely supports us in grief.

Karla Helbert is a licensed professional counselor (LPC), Compassionate Bereavement Care® provider, and yoga therapist. Karla’s latest book Yoga for Grief and Loss, endorsed by leaders, teachers and experts in the fields of yoga as well as grief and loss, explores how the ancient paths of yoga support those in grief. Karla lives and works in Richmond VA.
