What do you say to your friend suffering from loss?
When I tragically lost my 32-year-old son, I went to all the wrong places to find recovery. A professional counselor fresh out of school with a head full of book knowledge but no life experience, said to me “I know how you feel”. A pastor said “He’s in a better place.” My mother asked, “Was he right with God?” My partner said “It’s been 2 weeks. I thought you would be over this by now.” A friend said, God won’t give you more than you can handle.”
When you lose your parents, you are an orphan. When you lose your spouse, you are a widow or widower. Who are you when you lose a child? Where is the book that teaches you how to be the mother that lost her child?
The Grief Recovery Method Handbook is THE book! It is a step-by-step method to heal your heart.
When you want recovery from grief
· Look for a counselor with experience in grief
· Look for a “heart with ears” to listen as long as you need to talk
· Listen for a new answer instead of “pat” answers
· Look for an action method not just venting
· Ask if the person is certified to give you a step-by-step method for recovery.

Grief Recovery Method 1 on 1 Workshop, 7 Weeks “Grief is about a broken heart, not a broken brain. All efforts to heal the heart with the head fail because the head is the wrong tool for the job. It’s like trying to paint with a hammer—it only makes a mess.”
― John W. James, The Grief Recovery Handbook
Grief Recovery Method Helping Children With Loss,
Workshop (for the parents, teachers, caregivers,
To watch a child grieve and not know what to do is a profoundly difficult experience. Yet, there are guidelines for helping children develop a lifelong healthy response to loss.
There are many life experiences that can produce feelings of grief in a child, from the death of a relative or a divorce in the family to more everyday experiences such as moving to a new neighborhood or losing a prized possession. No matter the reason or severity, if a child you love is grieving, the guidelines examined in this workshop can make a difference.
Grief Recovery Method Pet Loss Workshop, 6 Weeks
If you've found yourself almost inconsolable after your pet died, please know that you're normal. If you've found that your family and friends don't seem to understand the level of your grief, please know that, too, is normal.
Without comparing our relationships with our pets to those with people, we know of the unique emotional relationships we have with our pets, their deaths produce a level of pain that is difficult to describe.
