It’s not only possible, it’s what I experienced after the death of my husband.
You’re not alone.
Grief is a natural process we don’t talk about.
It’s OK to feel whatever you’re feeling.
You won’t feel like this forever.
Joy awaits you.
Grief is a natural part of change.
Whether it’s joyful or unbearably challenging, carefully planned or a complete plot twist, change brings both celebrations and mournings.
We often focus only on celebration, bypassing how hard it is to navigate the unfamiliar, relegating grief to shadowy corners only to build up and leak out in unintended ways.
Yet when we acknowledge the grief inherent in change and let it move through us, we regain access to the vibrancy of this “one wild and precious life”, as the poet Mary Oliver says.
This rewilding of our inner landscape is possible when we embrace the regenerative nature of grief and let it renew us again and again.
If you love, you grieve.
Love, joy and grief are inextricably linked. Unmetabolized grief blocks our access to joy and love. Our individual and collective well-being hinges on our ability to learn to allow grief to move through us, becoming our most radiant selves.
The truth is, we don’t know what’s possible when we reconnect to our core wild nature and courageously step into our gifts in these unprecedented times.
I’m here to walk beside you and support you on this rewilding journey.
