When we encounter loss, we feel like we’re in a foreign country. We don’t speak the language and don’t have a map.
Nobody taught us how to do grief.
We didn’t learn it from our parents.
We didn’t learn it in school.
We didn’t grow up with the vocabulary of loss.
So when loss comes knocking on our lives, we are well and truly lost.
We lose someone we love. A spouse walks out. A dream we cradled close to our hearts shatters.
We wander the wilderness of grief, wild-eyed with sorrow, confusion and despair.
Questions jostle and tumble inside our heads.
Why is grief so hard?
How can I make time for grief when I have little kids to care for?
Will I be able to communicate with my loved one?
Feverishly and furiously we search for answers. We look for certainty. We explore theories and philosophies.
But are there any definitive answers when we’re faced with the grand mystery of death?
In the course of my work serving the bereaved as a Grief Guide, my clients, workshop participants and audiences have asked me (and continue to ask) questions about grief, loss, death and dying.
I also know from personal experience that there are no answers. There is only exploration. When I lost my 68-year-old mother to cancer in 2009 (Losing Amma, Finding Home: A Memoir About Love, Loss and Life’s Detours), I became a seeker. Questions haunted me. They chased after me in my dreams and tormented me during my waking moments.
In the process of healing myself and companioning the bereaved and the dying, I’ve come to understand that we can only attempt to embrace peace when we seek to discover the truths about the journey of the soul. When we commit to understanding who we are, why we are here and how our soul’s divine purpose unfolds through our human experiences we find a deep-seated peace.
I’ve gathered the most pertinent questions grieving people have asked me and attempted to distill the wisdom that has come to me through my own search. The result is an audio course titled Responding to Grief And Loss. Here are the highlights:
- there are a total of 6 audios, one for each session
- each audio is 15-20 minutes long
- you can choose to listen to the segment you feel most guided to because there is no sequential order
This audio course is perfect for you, if:
- you have questions about your personal loss
- you’re ready to address the grief and start the healing work
- you’re looking for a way to commit to short segments of time to your personal healing
- you don’t want to spend dollars you cannot afford
- you’re willing to understand the soul truths behind grief and loss
You are priceless…and so is the work of healing the broken pieces of your heart. The course costs only $20 and folks are buying already!
