Liberating Unmourned Loss | Restoring Wholeness After Soul Injury
February 18 @ 11:00 am - 1:15 pm
There are multiple professional programs in publications that focus on loss and grief. Few, however, focus on fear of loss and fear of the resultant emotional pain. Yet, fear of emotional pain fosters numbing behaviors that separate people from their “real” self. Fear of emotional pain interferes with learning how to use loss, failure, and disappointments as a passport into the larger self. In a grief-fearing American culture, loss is perceived as failure and grieving is viewed as destructive. Yet, grief is the natural, normal expression of loss; unmourned loss is the destructive culprit. Boxing up emotional pain causes our vitality, personhood, and passion to get boxed up as well. Learning how to develop a different relationship with the part of self-carrying emotional pain is the secret for living a passion-filled life. This video presentation provides a perspective that is sure to expand your viewpoint about how to cultivate: a healthy relationship with the part of self-carrying emotional pain, self-compassion, and personal intimacy. The value and role of therapeutic ceremonies and rituals to navigate difficult losses and transitions is also addressed.
