Grief and trauma have a way of taking you out of life. Your left brain short-circuits as your circumstances seem to defy logic. This leads to “grief brain.” Simple tasks become overwhelming and your thinking foggy. You’re having a completely normal response to a very abnormal time in your life.
Healing during these times then requires us to use the language of the right brain, the hemisphere that speaks in imagery and sensation.
Rituals do just this. They speak in a language the grieving mind can absorb. They surround your pain in love and beauty while simultaneously witnessing it deeply. These simple acts can profoundly alleviate the pain of your grief.
Four weeks of support, during which we will:
Talk via skype or phone, where I can listen and hear your story. You hold the reigns here and can share as much or a little as you want. I listen for the purity of hearing your story as well as to gather a sense of who you are to begin the process of creating your unique ritual.
Craft a step-by-step personalized ritual based on who you are and your unique story. This is where the magic happens. Acknowledgement and honoring that leads to deep and profound healing.
Answer any questions you have either within our phone calls or via email about grief, baby loss, mourning in this modern world we live in. There’s so much complexity to navigating these times. I am not a doctor or therapist, but I have walked the path of my own loss and spent the subsequent years experiencing and researching a wide breadth of healing practices. Let me make it easier for you and guide you to additional healing resources I intuitively feel might resonate
SESSION 1, 45 MINUTES - DISCOVERY
This first phone call or video conference is an opportunity for us to get to know each other. I listen to your story as well as ask a few simple questions to gather a sense of who you are, what brings you joy, other meaningful relationships or family members in your life, and how/where you find connection to the great presence of Divine Love, God, the Universe, Great Spirit…. your name for that which feels greater, beyond and Holy.
CALL 2, 30 MINUTES - RITUAL WALK THROUGH & EDITS
Between call one and call two I send you a completed pdf walking you through a proposed ritual for you and your family. During this second phone call we comb through the ritual and make any edits that feel right.
CALL 3, 15 MINUTES - FOLLOW UP AND CELEBRATION
Between call two and three, you have an opportunity to perform the ritual and then during our call share how it went, process any feelings that came up and celebrate the act. You walk away from our time together feeling more centered, lighter, and in less grief overwhelm.
