Based on the bestselling book
When we love deeply, we mourn deeply.
Grief expert and Zen priest Dr. Joanne Cacciatore knows first hand that when a loved one dies, the pain of loss can feel unbearable—especially in the case of a traumatizing death that leaves us shouting, “NO!”with every fiber of our body. She understands that the process of grieving can feel wild and nonlinear—and often lasts for much longer than other people, the nonbereaved, tell us it should.
In this amazing course for both bereaved and providers who want to learn more about traumatic grief counseling, Dr. Jo expands on her bestselling book—Bearing the Unbearable—revealing how grief can open our hearts to connection, compassion, and the very essence of our shared humanity.
Through this course you’ll learn what grief is and how you can identify its effects within yourself, as well as:
– The Selah grief model, which mindfully guides those who are grieving through three phases: being with grief, surrendering to grief, and doing with grief
– Self-care practices and tools to help you in your grief journey
– Meditation practices and movement exercises for being with your grief
– How to identify grief and its effects cognitively, socially, and somatically
– How to find meaning through doing with your grief: transforming it into compassionate action in the world
Dr. Jo opens a space to process, integrate, and deeply honor our grief, with her lessons augmented by guided meditations and yoga exercises by co-teacher and fellow counselor Karla Helbert. Through this course, you’ll learn not only how to care for yourself as you grieve but also how, by staying with the pain, you can transfigure it into fierce compassion, making the world a better place on behalf of the ones we have loved and lost.
Start learning today with Dr. Jo and Karla, as they help you navigate your path through grief, showing you a model that allows you to be with your grief and, over time, transform it into compassionate action in the world.
