Grief Recovery

recoveryWe as a society are taught how to acquire, but there is very little taught regarding how to manage loss. Grief is the normal and natural reaction to loss.  Unresolved grief and incomplete recovery from grief can have a lifelong negative effect on one’s capacity for happiness.  Grief is about a broken heart not a broken brain.   This 9 week workshop is designed for those struggling with unresolved grief issues.  It focuses on a series of small and correct action choices made by the griever.  Working both individually and in small groups, every participant takes part in a series of exercises that help them complete their undelivered emotional communications and their accompanying grief.   This process is dynamic and moves with the participant even after completing the workshop.  The tools are available for the participant to use for every loss throughout their lives.  Some participants choose to re-enroll in future workshops so that they can have the support of others as they work through other losses.
To participate please contact us and indicate that you wish to enroll in a Grief Recovery Method Workshop.
