If you’re grieving, you might feel alone, destroyed, numb, or in shock. Though we will encounter death and change, we can do so with kindness and wisdom and develop the skills and heart to mourn the loss with patience, tenderness, and clarity. Kimberly Brown, meditation teacher and author of Navigating Grief and Loss: 25 Buddhist Practices to Keep Your Heart Open to Yourself and Others, created this course to provide the resources and tools you need to help you normalize and rehumanize your grief. In this weekly class, Kimberly will teach you to bring gentleness and care to your body, mind, and spirit with traditional Buddhist practices, modern therapeutic tools, compassionate listening, and friendship. You’ll cultivate your inherent compassion and good sense to support yourself and those closest to you through the pain and sadness of mourning, loss, and grief. The eight-week series will be followed by a half-day meditation retreat, where participants will practice the meditations learned in the course.

In this program, you’ll learn to

  • Strengthen your self-awareness and self-acceptance
  •  Meet difficult emotions with kindness
  • Discover and learn to rely upon your constructive emotional resources
  • Create healthy relationships and boundaries
  • Discern options and make wise choices
  • Develop gratitude and appreciation for your precious human life and your loss.

 

This course is for anyone who is struggling with the loss of someone close to them—a friend, sibling, spouse, parent, grandparent, relative, colleague, or pet. Those experiencing anticipatory grief—if someone you love is dying right now—you are also welcome. We’ll be using exercises from Kimberly’s book. You can order a copy at this link, but it is not mandatory for the course.

 

You can also participate in the Support for Healing Half Day Retreat program on April 29. Discover more and register for this program at the link below.

 

*Please consider paying at the highest rate you can reasonably afford as your generosity enables and supports the participation of others*
