Blessing for Leaving

This is a difficult moment.

Even though she has died and we know this must be done, still…

We don’t want to begin the work of releasing.

But first, let’s thank this home/hospital/care center that has sheltered her in her last days, through the work of dying.

Thank you for holding _______ and bringing us here to be with her.

Lord's Prayer

from original Aramaic

O Breathing Life, your Name shines everywhere!
Release a space to plant your Presence here.
Envision your "I Can" now.
Embody your desire in every light and form.
Grow through us this moment's bread and wisdom.
Untie the knots of failure binding us,
as we release the strands we hold of others' faults.
Help us not forget our Source,
Yet free us from not being in the Present.
From you arises every Vision, Power and Song
from gathering to gathering.
Amen -
May our future actions grow from here!
