Experiencing grief and loss is one of life's greatest challenges. Mindfulness & Grief is your self-care toolkit, designed to give you the coping skills you need for the short term, and help you cultivate a life of wellness and meaning, even in the wake of loss.
Combining inspirational stories of hope and healing with contemporary grief research, evidence-based meditation techniques and the knowledge that each of us grieves in our own way, Mindfulness & Grief has helped thousands of people worldwide navigate the disorienting path of loss. Based on the 8-week program developed by thanatologist and meditation teacher Heather Stang, there are over 35 meditation, yoga, journalling and expressive arts exercises. They are designed to help you ease your physical symptoms of grief, calm your mind and regulate difficult emotions. You will discover how to increase compassion towards yourself and others, make meaning from your loss and honour your loved one, and develop your new self-narrative for moving forward. The program is accessible to anyone - regardless of physical ability - and does not require any previous meditation or yoga experience.
