The Grief Recovery Method® is a heart-centered, action-oriented program that is designed to help you complete the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by loss of any kind. Whether you are grieving due to a death, divorce, romantic break-up, or any of the other 40 losses that can create the feelings of grief, the program will equip you with the tools to complete any unresolved emotions that are still causing you pain.

It is not time in itself that heals our wounds, it is the actions we take within time that does. Thus, our grief healing program requires total commitment. This is not a drop-in style group format. Your weekly attendance of this program is vital for maximum benefit in the healing and recovery process. The text that is used to guide you to recovery is The Grief Recovery Handbook – 20th Anniversary Expanded Edition – The Action Program for Moving Beyond Death, Divorce, and Other Losses by John W. James and Russell Friedman.
The text and other program material will be provided to you upon a commitment to the program.   $325

When Their World Stops

The Essential Guide to TRULY Helping Anyone In Grief

No more fear, walking on eggshells, or having no idea what to do!

 

AN EXCERPT FROM ANNE-MARIE’S BOOK,
WHEN THEIR WORLD STOPS

 
 

When I joined a grief group....

the first thing I learned was not to expect much from my friends so that I wouldn’t be disappointed. And it was true. It’s not that friends don’t care or don’t want to help. They just have no idea what to do or say. I was one of those friends myself. We are able to support our friends through many hard times, but when it comes to the death of a loved one it’s like we get tongue-tied and paralyzed. We are fearful, desperately wanting to help but feeling inadequate to do so. Grief makes us uncomfortable, and we are at a loss as to what to do. Often we blurt out something we shouldn’t. Or, sometimes, we simply do nothing.

I hope that what I’ve learned through my grief experience will help you be the friend you want to be to the grieving person in your life—the one you’re trying to help right now. When we’re not there for those who are grieving, it’s not because we don’t care; we do. We just aren’t sure how to respond. And we’re scared. But we can do it. YOU can do it! And with a little knowledge and willingness, you will. Because you already have the most important quality you need to be helpful …
YOU CARE!
