Grief, Loss and Change: Maintaining Vitality Through Transitions

This online course on Loss and Grief will help individuals and families experiencing grief associated with loss. The focus will be on helping people change their behavior, identify, experience and express their feelings, change limiting beliefs, resolve unmet expectations, and meet and experience yearnings. Participants will begin to experience their universal yearnings and life force energy to experience new possibilities of healing and growth in the face of loss and grieving.

People have experienced loss and are grieving because of corona virus resulting in the quarantine situation. In Chinese Medicine each organ is connected with an emotion. The lungs are connected with grief. The lungs are the most affected area of COVID-19. We are being called to grieve and honor the cycle of life, death, and rebirth. Grieving allows us to be present with our heart and allows it to soften. Allowing More connection to flow in and out of us. We have experienced a loss of safety, in some instances; loss of work, loss of money, loss of family members, and loss of freedom to move outside of our homes, loss of being able to go to work, and loss of connection with our family and friends.
