Yes Day!

Acknowledging & Celebrating our Grief Anniversaries Through Movement

When: Saturday, 2:30 PM (1.5 hrs (90 min))
  Room: COM: Queenswood Arbutus


Yes day was created out of a deep sadness that was born from me after having lost my mama too soon. My little ones were so new to the world, and had only shared a few moments with my mum before we gave her up. In a ceremony of honouring and cherishing her we started celebrating YES DAY (Feb 17th) on what would have been her birthday. We share stories, look through pictures, celebrate, and yes, we say YES to every single thing in an effort to create lightness and love on a day that would otherwise be cast in a shadow of sorrow. 8 years later, YES DAY is bigger than any other holiday in our home. We’ve shared it with others, and it helps us all to remember those who have passed, but that we still hold onto so dearly. Creating a ritual that not only honours our ancestors, but celebrates them, has helped bring their energy into the present and into the current of our lives once again. This movement based workshop will help you say YES to everything! We’ll move through some big love creating, heart opening postures that create an internal environment that allows you to feel expansive and connected to all those who your heart strings are attached to!
