Making Space for Grief: Sorrow, Growth, Action and HOPE
Allowing grief to enter our body is a much healthier approach than trying to deny or suppress it. In this session we will start off by relaxing through a body scan meditation before we engage in a conversation about the elements which encapsulate the end-of-life.
Dee Dee Turpin will guide us through inevitable topics of death, dying and grief. We will touch upon how to reduce unnecessary suffering, increase inner peace, and bring a sense of love and purpose, when facing one of the most vulnerable experiences in our life story.
We will end our session with a Reiki treatment as we come together in deep relaxation to recharge and reconnect with our true selves
