Are you looking for the kind of grief support that helps you cope with the pain of loss and build resilience all while honoring the love that remains?
You're not alone, and the Mindfulness & Grief Institute is here to help you navigate these stormy waters. Our Awaken Grief Support Program is designed to provide a safe, nurturing environment for you to share your story, find solace, and learn the healthy way to navigate grief.
Unlike many grief support groups, which can leave you feeling worse off than when you arrived, Awaken Grief Support Program helps you build skills to cope and develop resilience through mindfulness-based training and compassionate communication.
Here's why you should consider joining this transformative program today:
1. Connect with a compassionate community of people who understand your pain and will treat you with kindness
Losing someone you love is a deeply personal experience, but connecting with others who have walked a similar path can provide much-needed support and understanding.
While most people join Awaken for the meditation, yoga, and journaling, most people stay for the community! In the Awaken Grief Support Program, you'll find a tribe of people who know firsthand what you're going through. Together, you'll offer each other empathy, validation, and encouragement on this journey toward healing.
Even though your stories are different and special, we know what it is like to feel the pain and want to talk about them and say their name.
2. Learn valuable coping strategies in weekly groups facilitated by seasoned professionals who get you
The Awaken Grief Support Program is led by a trained, compassionate thanatologist, yoga therapist, and author who understands the complex emotions and challenges that come with grieving. Heather Stang MA, C-IAYT will equip you with a variety of effective coping strategies, tailored to your unique needs and circumstances.
These tools will not only help you navigate your grief, but also empower you to find meaning and purpose in your life moving forward. You will also experience profound transformation through yoga for grief facilitated by Angelique Raptakis (E-RYT500).
You won't get slimed with toxic positivity, platitudes, or outdated suggestions based on stage models that just aren't a thing. Instead we rely on evidence-based practices, modern thanatology research, and compassion, compassion, compassion.
3. Benefit from a structured, yet flexible program
The Awaken Grief Support Program strikes a delicate balance between providing structure and allowing for personal growth. You'll engage in group discussions, activities, and one-on-one sessions that explore various aspects of grief and healing. But you'll also have the freedom to explore your emotions at your own pace, in a way that feels authentic and natural for you.
You will have opportunities to ask questions and share in the groups, which allows us to tailor the program to meet your needs. Plus when you join Awaken Group & Course Membership - monthly or annual - you get a free one hour session with Heather so she can address your needs and hear your story in a private, safe space.
4. Experience the power of storytelling and creative expression
Sharing your story can be an incredibly therapeutic way to process your grief. In the Awaken Grief Support Program, you'll have the opportunity to share your memories and experiences in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.
Additionally, the program incorporates creative activities such as art, writing, photo sharing, and music, to help you express your emotions and find new ways to honor the memory of your loved one.
5. Get 24/7/365 resources that teach you how to cope and start living again
The Mindfulness & Grief Course Library found inside Awaken Grief Support Program is designed to guide you through the complex journey of grief with a wealth of resources, including videos, workbooks, guided meditations, and more. These tools are all based on the 8-step Mindfulness & Grief System developed by Heather Stang in her groundbreaking book.
This comprehensive system teaches you that grief isn't something you simply "fix"; instead, it's a process that you learn to navigate with time, patience, and self-compassion. By following Heather's expert guidance, you'll gradually develop the skills and mindset needed to effectively cope with the inevitable ups and downs of grief, allowing you to find healing, growth, and ultimately, a renewed sense of purpose and meaning in your life.
6. Build resilience for a lifetime
As a participant in the Awaken Grief Support Program, you'll have access to a wealth of resources, including educational materials, reading lists, and online forums.
These resources will continue to support you as you integrate your newfound knowledge and coping skills into your daily life. We even offer a special twice-monthly Perpetual Mindfulness class for people who feel they don't need a weekly grief group any longer, but love the community and the practices.
While some people come and go, many members have remained in the Awaken Community for a year, two, and even longer! And we never remove you from the Facebook group, even if you are no longer a member. You are always our family!
7. Awaken is an affordable way to get helpful ongoing grief support
There are plenty of free grief support groups in your community, and we encourage you to try those out. There are also private grief therapists that can be helpful too. Many of them refer their clients to Awaken Grief Support Program as a complimentary support system.
Awaken is an all inclusive program that gives you both structure and guidance for a small monthly membership fee. If you can't afford to see a therapist once a week, we are a great resource for you to lean on.
And unlike many community grief groups, we focus specifically on self-care practices grounded in mindfulness and self-compassion. It isn't just grief support - it leads you to personal growth.
