44 Practice: Sacred Shower or Bath — Eroc Arroyo-Montano

In this practice episode, Eroc Arroyo-Montano offers a practice from Mijente Ancestral Resistance Zine for transforming grief. He shares an approach to creating your own cleansing shower ritual to open up sacred space to ground and release in a way that speaks to you.

This is a good episode to listen to in preparation for your actual practice of this ritual so you can learn the ropes. When you're ready to practice, you'll need access to a bath or shower, and optionally some candles and a speaker to play music.
