S.” model of grief processing through proactive grieving is now changing the way America grieves. We will explore who are we as a griever, discovering our own unique grieving style which better enables us to draw to our strengths and identify our weaknesses. This is a workshop to empower your own vulnerability to take back the night and provide light for the grief journey. Proactive grieving harnesses the power of mind, body, soul and spirit to integrate and attain its own natural healing equilibrium. Proactive grieving is becoming an intentional survivor.

This session is grieving out of the box and will use artwork, words and music to help define the many components of the grief journey that we can experience as a griever.

Stress levels will be examined and a guided mediation will be conducted to activate the relaxation response to relieve stress and help to create a pathway to mindfulness.

Not only signs after the death has occurred but during the dying process, and signs or omens prior to the death. We will also explore dreams, visitations, voices, and psychic communication that validates for so many that there is life beyond death. A slide show with powerful anecdotal evidence from around the world that supports this phenomenon will be shared and discussed.
