Week 1

When Death is Traumatic

The circumstances around death as well as complicated relationships can be traumatic. This week, we'll discuss the relationship between trauma and grief and start to understand how they both impact lives and healing.

Week 2

When Old Wounds Show up in Current Loss

The past and the future often collide in trauma. Grief can reactivate and remind us of trauma from the past. We'll learn to identify and untangle some of the old patterns. They often contribute to feelings of being stuck and helplessness.

Week 3

Grieving the Extreme

Some events are so big they overload our senses and are challenging to process. We'll talk about tragedies and extreme experiences that are global, societal, and individual. These events can leave horrific images, burdens and rumination in their wake. We'll discuss ways to build resilience and a feeling of safety when the world as we knew it has forever changed.

Week 4

The Healing Process of Trauma and Grief

In the painful aftermath of trauma, emotional wounds may impact all areas of our lives. In the fourth week, we'll explore the path to healing and navigating the future to bring more love, freedom, forgiveness and transformation.
