Beth is part of a creative event, Inspired to Move, that is part speaking gig like a TedTalk, part dancing and movement and part Cacao ceremony. Come be inspired by Beth and and many others. May it give you the inspiration to keep moving both internally and externally, especially if you are deep in grief. 

April 19, 2024, from 4pm-midnight! 

We invite you to come hear her speak about befriending grief. She will also lead a masterclass with her new system of working with the layers of grief called The Wheel of Grief. See the link below for information and schedule. 

She will be teaching at 6:30pm and then later speaking sometime around 7:30pm.

And reach out if you need a coupon code to attend. Thanks and we hope to see you there. 


Grief Ritual Colorado

Grief ritual in the fall of 2024 in Paonia, Colorado

Beth Erlander will be leading a three day Dagara Grief Ritual with Wendy Kaas, Amber VanCleave, and Leah Bee in person on the land in beautiful Paonia. 

Date is yet to be set for either late August or Septmember. More details to come. 

Reach out to Beth if you are interested. Please see Grief Ritual page under Offerings for more information.

We are very excited to gather in community held by the land and elements to grieve.


The Dagara Grief Ritual was taught to both Wendy, Beth and Amber by Elder Malidoma Somé and Sobonfu Somé who are both from the Dagara tribe in Burkina Faso, West Africa. 

Sobonfu led many grief rituals to Westerners after she learned that we didn’t know how to be with grief. For the Dagara, grief is simply part of being human.

Beth attended these rituals with both Elder Malidoma and Sobonfu and it was one of the things that helped her most to be with the amount of grief she was carrying. 

She has since led these rituals with Wendy Kaas for many years. 

Grief ritual is a sacred place and time to let your feral grief be fully expressed. We will set up a few altars to grief, the Ancestors and to forgiveness and water. Then we will teach you the grief song only used in this ritual. We will then have many rounds of grieving. And we’ll end by sharing a meal and some social time together. 

Questions? Reach out to Beth, she’s so happy to share about this healing experience. 

Thank you
