PRACTICAL TOOLS AND RESOURCES FOR
HEALING GRIEF & TRAUMA
PURPOSE and DEDICATION
Welcome to a remarkable community of inspiring friends, peers and mentors all of whom have been tackling the hard work of living while experiencing profound grief and trauma. Collectively we grieve our spouses, partners, children, siblings, parents, extended family members, best friends, lives and former selves. We have experienced trauma by accident, long term illness, stillbirth, suicide, addiction, murder, abuse, assault, war, terrorist attack, serious medical condition and occupational duty.
But this website is not so much about HOW we all got here…
It’s more about what to do now that we ARE here…
How can we recover a sense of self after hopes, dreams, assumptions and core beliefs have been shattered?
How can we restore some sense of balance in our minds, bodies, spirits?
How can we engage in every day living AND go about the business of transforming and rebuilding new lives?
What tools and resources are there in our communities to help us while we move toward restoration, renewal, rebalancing, and rebuilding?
