Grief is a natural reaction to loss, but if you are like most people, grief can leave you feeling emotionally mentally and physically exhausted. Fortunately the ancient practice of mindfulness can help to reduce your suffering and be your guiding light on the path through tough times. The good news is you don't need to have any previous meditation or yoga experience to benefit from Mindfulness & Grief. All you need is a desire to reduce your own pain.
