Natural Awakenings Twin Cities

Two Events on Grief

Cheryl Downey

Cheryl Downey, founder of Sacred Wheel Center for Grief and Healing, in Burnsville, will host two events this fall to help people deal with loss and transition. Downey, a former hospice chaplain and certified spiritual healer, will hold both workshops at Berkshire of Burnsville Community Room.

The first is the Mysteries of FatherLoss Retreat, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on October 25. The second is the Sacred Prayer Beads Workshop, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on November 22. Registration fee for each event includes materials and a light lunch.

Downey has worked with death, dying, life losses and grief for almost 35 years, and has seen the immense benefit people can receive by acknowledging the grief that resides within them.

“Autumn is a natural time for reflections of our life losses and transitions,” Downey says. “We see our world releasing the energy of outward vibrancy and brilliance into a quiet introversion and internal movement, much like grief can be. In contrast, grief-hearted ones may feel their changes and loss more acutely and heavily this time of year, and find themselves searching for a deeper healing and release."

Cost: $25 each; payment may be made by cash or check, or online through PayPal. To register, call 612-272-3977 or email [email protected] and include name, phone number and event. Location: 13901 Echo Park Cir., Burnsville. For more information, visit
