The purpose of Sadness Club is to learn how to consciously experience your sadness, utilise its connective - and cleansing - energy and information, so you can navigate to the deepest grounds of your worlds and be reborn over and over again for to be vibrantly living in the fields of Connection and Compassion.
Modern culture holds opportunities to feel your sadess very narrow. It tries to convince us that sadness is a sign of weakness, especially for men. And that women, who are sad (usually all the time), are as themselves too much and complicated. This creates narrowness and a never-ending competition of strenght. Bottom line - if you are sad you better be alone! That exactly this might cause the lack of connection and togetherness that many people suffer and try to fill with enormous efforts of neurotic consumption is neglected. The incapacity to grief and to be fully compassionate about the aliveness of live is the outcome of the unconscious abandonment of sadness.
A dry world needs to be watered with your tears by regaining the ability to let go of Relationships, Dreams, Things, Ideals, Moments, Fictions, Jobs, Decisions, Friends, Loved Ones, Survival Strategies and Identities of ones self. Your sadness has the power to connect you with reality and widen the space that your being lovingly occupies.
Without consciously feeling and navigating your sadness things stay drouth and dry and people can only move in the narrow channels of their crippled ability for Compassion.
Sadness Clubs are extremely safe learning environments allowing you to reconnect to the adult and archetypal power and intelligence of sadness.
Sadness Club is not about healing your sadness, make it go away, or trying to diminuish it.
To discover new ways, new moves, new possibilities, new parts of you and new parts of others;
To be an archetypal Lover and create real heart-touching worlds;
To create genuine Intimacy and Love;
To continuously invent your relating with others;
To invent your life;
To discover your Lineage as a Sadness Club Spaceholder.
In other words, to discover the Lover, the Mother, the Father, the Caretaker, the in you.
Sadness signals you when you are with or without the intimacy that is held by Life around you..it brings you right back into the present moment of stillness and yet movement.
In order to allow that indigenous energy to come forward, to be born, there is a lot of cleansing to be done. It is perhaps not surprising to see that the modern world is experiencing drouth. The dryness of the realm might be a reflection of the increasing drouth of the psyche of a culture.
There won't be a moses or some kind of messiah (...) to sprinkle the water of cleansing. It will have to come from the very ground. It will have to come from the people who have heard the call from the other world and who want to do somehting about it. My sense is, that we are it. So what are we gonna do to cleanse?'

Working With Sadness
Working with Sadness
No other sphere and feeling is so deeply in love with the two siblings of Life and Death as sadness. Where Life ends, it begins. The never ending cycle does each transition within the embracing hands of sadness. Between the gentle touch and lacerating tear of sadness, the heart of Life beats. When there is no sadness there is no Life.
Sadness Club is different from Fear Club and Rage Club. It's territory centers in Connection, reset, letting go, and learning how to grieve.
For the Sadness Club to work the door of falling into the midst of yourself is taken everytime anew in any moment. It's a space full of beginnings and endings. At the end of the Sadness Club, the sadness explorers are different beings, closer through their journey, enriched by having found the door to an incredible source of Life (and Death).
