Pathosophy - A Living Art
“Wisdom born of Grief & Suffering”
by Azul Thomé
The creation of this book on the Arts of Collective Grief Rituals is a living legacy. After years of apprenticing, teaching and experiencing the alchemy of Grief Composting I am wishing to propose the deep meaning of the word Pathosophy: Wisdom born of suffering.
It is my prayer and a deep longing to offer our world a renewed and empowering framing for the suffering we experience. We can see that suffering will keep increasing as we dive deeply into our collective Initiation through the pandemic, the death of our Earth living systems, millions losing their home, livelihood and lives.
What if we can experience the inevitable suffering as the raw material necessary for the alchemist in us- to transform the grief and suffering into wisdom and remedies? Is that preferable and possible?
This book is intended to become good company for a homecoming to the Soul of our Earth. An honouring of our visible and invisible kins, alive and dead.
It is inspired by the words from the river Dart :
" When you create containers of sacred beauty that opens your Heart to what Love truly is then you will realise with a massive sob that you were loved all along, always have and for ever by all of Us who you think You are Saving! "
