Make Peace With Your Pain

 I guide you through your grief so you can make peace with your pain.

From Grief to Gratitude e-Course

A 6-Week Healing Journey


“Life is so unfair.”

“Nobody understands this pain.”

“Will I ever feel normal again?”


You’re asking these questions. Over and over again. The Universe remains silent. You wish someone would just hold you and let you cry. Or know to say the right words that will make the pain go away.


Are you overwhelmed by your grief?

Does your life feel changed forever?

Do you see a stranger when you look in the mirror?

Where is that person, the one who was fun to be around, who laughed and loved life?


I asked all those questions. I’ve been in that scary, awful place. Not wanting to get out of bed. Not able to fall asleep when I stayed in bed. Not liking who I was turning into. Not knowing what to do with the pain.


Grief is hard.

And we all need a helping hand to cross that swollen river.

That’s why I was guided to create From Grief to Gratitude, a 6-week easy-to-do home study program.

Grief is overwhelming enough. I didn’t want the solution to be that too.

So I created 6 simple lessons: 6 audio recordings (MP3’s) and 6 Study Guides (PDF’s), one per lesson.

Each guide is only 6 pages long. So you can print lesson 1 and read a page or two when you feel up to it.

Or you can take the MP3 on a walk with you. In the car. Or to bed. Listen with an open heart and let the teachings speak to you.

“I can’t thank you enough for the course.  From the first module, setting an intention, I felt a lovely sense of focus come back into my life.  Being reminded to live intentionally was just what I needed. Thank you for creating a safe framework from which I was able to explore that overwhelming sadness. You have helped me regain a sense of my life that I wasn’t even aware that I’d lost.  You have reassured me that we are always provided for and our beautiful lives are continually being revealed. Even through the greatest heartache. Thank you so much.” – Fay Hart, Self-Awareness Teacher, Mexico

“Uma’s 7 week class series “From Grief to Gratitude” was absolutely wonderful. She had assembled an enormous treasure trove of resources and ideas for us. Her presentation style was warm and caring. She provided great information, techniques and references to enable us to feel rejuvenated.  She was able to give us exactly what we needed for self-care and restoration as we recuperate following our losses.  As a Life Coach myself so accustomed to helping others, it was great to have this wonderful support and wisdom during my own time of need.  It was most appreciated.” – Yvonne Mitchell, Life, Career and Life Purpose Coach, IL
