Before this program I was having anxiety and depression. The weekly practice was powerful, but integrating my practice into my daily life was especially helpful. I am calmer now. Even when I focus on my grief, it doesn't seem as overwhelming.
The program has been my life jacket in a very stormy sea of grief. I am the person who ultimately has to swim and get back to land but having this has given me hope that I will get there, in my own time and with the help of Heather and my companions in the online sessions.
This course has brought me back to a mindfulness practice and has been instrumental in my finding peace and equanimity with the loss of my husband and the resultant changes in my life. I recommend this course for anyone who has suffered from the loss of a loved one.
Focused on Steps 1, 2 and 3 of the Mindfulness & Grief System, these core Awaken Master Classes will teach you the principles of Conscious Relaxation, Mindfulness Meditation, and Self-Compassion, one of the most transformative steps in program. Each class features a guided meditation and lecture in an MP3 format so you can download and play it at your convenience.
