When it comes to grief . . .

  • Do you want to learn how different people grieve differently, in order to feel a sense of hope that can help you heal yourself?
  • Do you want to better understand the role of myths in our death-phobic culture so that you can spot, and then ignore, bad advice about grieving?
  • Do you want to gain thoughtful, kind-hearted insights from real-life stories of people who turned their loss into meaningful purpose and fulfillment?
  • Do you want to be heartened to learn that grief is not “work” you have to undertake because you are already stronger and more resilient than you know?

Good. You’ve come to the right place.

This mini-course is perfect for you if . . .

  • You are someone who wants to find useful, common sense ways to tend to your grief, but you are unsure of where to start.
  • You think you are managing your grief in ways that suit your basic personality, but you have noticed that some people seem critical and impatient with your sadness.
  • You are not sure what constitutes healthy grief or if laughter and humor are appropriate during bereavement.
  • You want to find inspiration for being open to grief as a journey of self-development, but you don’t know if this is a realistic goal.
  • You wonder if the sadness of grief has any purpose, but you find it difficult to bring up that subject with others for fear of being seen as morbid or weird.

“Elaine’s website, her monthly blog posts, and her newsletter essays are so inspiring, I look forward to reading her latest ideas and advice. She is one of those amazing individuals who come into your life who has this unique gift for gently guiding and inspiring you to examine your own heart and mind to get clarity on your life direction. She imparts wisdom and light in a most endearing way. Expect to look at life differently!"

– Terry, Creating the Work You Love workshop participant
