Grief & The Woman’s Life Cycle
"You will experience the triple Goddess — Maiden, Mother, and Crone. These phases are symbolic to, not just your own life, but life as a whole. Birth, life, and death. As women, it is important to understand you are the cycle.” Emma Mildon.
Throughout the last two years I have experienced tangible bereavement through the loss of relatives who have transitioned and relationships which have come to an end. I have also experienced grief through symbolic deaths of changing homes, geographical locations, and work. These experiences have re-triggered childhood wounds around grief and invited me me into deep moments of contemplation around the nature of grief and my relationship with it. This has illuminated for me the intimate relationship which Women have with birth, life and death. Just like the moon phases, the feminine cycles are built around the natural occurrence of beginnings, endings and the phases in between.
