The Healing Power of Grief
Removing the Stone from the Heart
BUILD PSICHO-EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE
Grief is a part of life.
“Don’t run away from grief, o’ soul/ Look for the remedy inside the pain/ because the rose came from the thorn/ and the ruby came from a stone” – Rumi
Whether it be the loss of a beloved or the collective grief over climate chaos, war, polarization, and threats to democracy, we need to mourn, yet our culture has a difficult relationship with grief.
Grief is hushed, put out of sight and mind, and we’re encouraged to get over it. Sometimes a toxic culture of positivity suppresses the reality of the experience. In this course we befriend and tend grief, trusting that the relationship has its own time frame, its own needs, and its own grace.
