As many of you know, this year has been one of intimacy with grief for me.  My father passed on in December, and I spent the next three months learning what the world was like for me without this person in it. I spent quite a bit more time sleeping than usual, and time integrating my ideas of who my father was throughout his lifespan, and throughout mine.  I was surprised into grief by the sudden appearance of a new bird at my feeder, by a whistle I would have bought for him, by food he would have enjoyed. I planned this year’s teleseminar series last year, before my father died, and so, here I am at the subject I chose for June – Grief. Grief is what happens when we experience loss, and loss can take many different forms: the loss of our job; the death of a beloved companion animal; the heartbreak of lost love; the closing of opportunities that used to be open to us; as well as the passing of important people in our lives. I would be delighted to have you join me in person on the call, or later, via a recording, for an exploration of how to hold ourselves with compassion and warmth as we move through transitions.
