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. - Alexis

Before this course 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. - C.B.

Heather's calm and compassionate presence are a healing balm in times of great loss. She explains grief so well that you feel as if she walks through the process with you and deeply comprehends the ever changing path of grief. I found her program to be both educational and experiential, an unusual combination in the field of grief. I greatly appreciate her expertise, wisdom, intuition, and compassionate approach. I recommend her programs without reserve! - C.C.M.
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. - H.K.S.

The sharing groups are designed to give you compassionate support from Heather and the Awaken Grief Tribe, keep your practice on track, and provide a forum for you share victories and ask questions if you are facing obstacles. Each sharing circle will begin with a brief centering, and then the “floor” will be open for sharing. There is no judgment, only loving support.

I found in Heather´s online course a refuge where I can connect with awareness my ongoing grief process. The lessons allowed me to relate intimately with how my grief appeared in my thoughts, emotions and physical sensations. My relationship to life after this loss has profoundly changed, and I appreciate Heather's support to discover it. - G.S.
I would say that ‘mindfulness’ is a gift you will unpack the rest of your life. Too often we humans are just reacting to things one after another. If you want to get off the treadmill, then Heather Stang is the ideal person to guide you. Her work is thoughtful, focused and well researched. - YIE YIN FOONG, Family Services Outreach Coordinator, LiveOnNY Organ Donation
