RESTORE. RENEW. REBUILD.
POWERFUL TOOLS AND RESOURCES TO ACCOMPANY AND ACCELERATE THE HEALING JOURNEY OF THOSE LIVING WITH GRIEF & TRAUMA
PURPOSE and DEDICATION
In the few years since my husband’s death, I have been welcomed into 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, children, 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 while holding grief and trauma AND go about the business of transforming and rebuilding lives?
What tools and resources are there in our communities to help us while we move toward restoration, renewal, rebalancing, and rebuilding?
A 2 Z Healing Toolbox is a collection of powerful, practical action-based tools & resources that can help counter the negative affects of grief and trauma and may assist in increased healing of the mind, body and spirit. They are in an easy-to-read format. They have been studied, researched, recommended by professionals – and tested out by thousands of peers, mentors and colleagues. A variety and combination of these tools can be used throughout the process of healing, transformation and rebuilding.
An enormous thank you to everyone in the grief & trauma community for sharing the tools and resources that have helped you along your journey. The deliberate, intentional “healing work” you have done to accommodate your new, life altering situations inspires thousands daily.
Huge gratitude and respect to all of our community supporters- families, friends, colleagues, teachers, coaches, health practitioners, religious leaders, spiritual healers, healing professionals, researchers. You aide in our self recovery, restoration, renewal and rebuilding process. Learning new ways to heal and transform our lives while dealing with the physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual effects of grief and trauma is no easy task. It is an arduous journey and we could not do this work alone. We need you. Thank you for being there!
