On Tuesday, December 7, 2021, another 10-week Grief Group will begin in the Village based on a process following the “The Grief Recovery Handbook” healing steps. Together we will co-create a safe container where we can harvest and give space to the healing medicine of grief. Suzan has participated in this process three times, and will facilitate the group. For her this has been one of the most powerful tools for deep healing of the grief and loss she has experienced, bringing so much grace and clarity to her life.

Grief and loss affects us in so many ways, whether it is the death of a loved one, a divorce, a relationship ending, a health crisis, loss of plans, dreams and more. This handbook guides us through step-by-step inquiries and exercises so that we can move towards, and give space to grief, allowing for more love and life force to flow.

The 10-week group includes:

:: Weekly 60 minute Zoom gatherings on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. PST; 1:30 p.m. EST; 19:30 CET

:: Weekly assignments (which will be posted in the Wisdom School)

:: During the Zoom gathering there will be time reserved to share insights from your assignments within a small group; this witnessing is a very valuable piece of the work

:: A private circle in the Village where you can share and ask questions

The Grief Group is an offering within the Village, and there is no additional cost to join. However, you will need to purchase “The Grief Recovery Handbook” by Russell Friedman and John W. James.

This process is best served if everyone in the group is committed to staying with it for the whole 10 weeks, and showing up for every call. You will have a small group you meet with during the calls, and having this commitment creates a safe and consistent container.

We will meet these Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. PST; 1:30 p.m. EST; 19:30 CET:
December 7, 14, 21
January 4, 11, 18, 25
February 1, 8, 15

If you are interested in participating in this group and can commit to all 10 weeks, please enter your name + email address below. There are 30 seats available for this group.

Sharings from past participants of this 10 week process:

:: This has been really effective in transforming stuck patterns of grief. I found the process allowed me to cut through long-standing confusion by being really thorough and re-ordering what happened clearly in my mind and heart. Taking this process step by step was long and sometimes arduous… but also allowed me to build confidence in my feelings, realizations and truths… so I fully own the experience and outcome. One of the most powerful components was the way the gratitude statements moved me from being powerless to powerful once again…. my vitality is returning.

:: It was very good to go through this process as it makes very much sense to see all the steps. It was great to have the witnessing, and the sharing of the others, I got a totally new perspective of grief and loss and was able to see a lot of places where I was stuck and I could free myself.

:: These 10 weeks have changed so much. My grief, my pain, my despair were allowed to unfold freely, so that with each week they were enveloped bit by bit with love and confidence and thus lost pressure and over-poweringness. Instead of heaviness, I now feel lightness.

:: This process was a beautiful and deep journey into the sacred space of grief. I didn’t know what to expect and was a little nervous from the beginning but as the process progressed I was surprised at how effective and gentle the process was. Being seen in my vulnerability by others was initially confronting but over time the power of this way of sharing was healing, to be seen in such a raw and open state was very freeing. I loved this process and plan to continue with other relationships.

:: This process has shifted blocks that I have carried for years. For the first time, I felt completely safe sharing my grief and it was liberating. he process is deceptively simple and yet has unlocked so much, and continues to shift as I reflect further. I’m truly grateful.
