Francis Weller, MFT, is a psychotherapist, writer and soul activist. He is a master of synthesizing diverse streams of thought from psychology, anthropology, mythology, alchemy, indigenous cultures and poetic traditions. Author of Entering the Healing Ground: Grief, Ritual and the Soul of the World, he has introduced the healing work of ritual to thousands of people. The core of his work is creating pathways to reclaiming our indigenous soul, what psychologist Carl Jung called the “unforgotten wisdom” that resides in the heart of the psyche.

I listened to a live interview of him by Michael Lerner at the New School at Commonwheal, it was a feast of a conversation. The wisdom he shared about grief deeply moved me and after the interview I had the chance to interview him for a few minutes. With this video I would like to offer a taste of his work. Grief work is tremendously needed in our world right now, so I am very grateful to Francis and others who are bringing back the grief rituals so we can reclaim our health and sanity.
