Everybody who is dealing with abrupt climate change leading to a climate catastrophe will stumble upon different emotions, that may be summarized as grief. In this 14th episode I am honored to introduce a wonderful woman to you, who dedicates herself to offer grief rituals: Azul-Valerie Thome.
On her website souland.org she is writing about herself:
I live in Devon, England with blood from Lebanon and France in my veins, the mother of a young warrior man. I am an eARTh artist and a ritualist. My work is infused with soul and beauty, informed by ancient Earth’s wisdom, systems thinking, ancient philosophy as well as archetypal psychology.

We could not talk about all her exuberant creative activities. Here we concentrate on her grief work, that‘s so necessary these days.
SOULand is a response to our traumatised, collapsing and transforming world.
It is an active prayer to support the accompaniment of what is dying while Making the World of our Longing ~ even if it is to late for our own species…
…it is a graceful gesture of soul, courage and beauty, it is Soul Activism.
