Practice Pausing:

How to Have the Courage to Sit with Your Truth

Modern life rarely acknowledges – and frequently pathologizes – grief.

But if we honor grief, and grieve attentively, grieving becomes a positive experience of transformation and rebirth. Grieving brings the soul to stillness, readying it for profound spiritual change.

Unresolved grief doesn’t require a death, although grieving most often begins that way. “Deaths” occur in other ways: the end of a life’s dream or of a marriage, or from rejection and betrayal. “Small griefs” can be frustration or loss of control, disappointment, or dashed expectation.

Unresolved grief can turn into acting out, substance abuse, overwork, or over-achievement. If grief’s pain becomes too much to sit with, it well may become self-harm.

During this presentation you and your group will discover:
  • The 5 powerful tools to overcome grief and other painful emotions that everyone has access to right now
  • How to “sit” with difficult emotions so the pain can flow away
  • Why negative emotions like grief can lead to physical symptoms in the body and how to manage and relieve those symptoms
  • How to practice pausing – starting immediately – including an interactive experience your audience will remember
  • Determining the kind of support you need and how to find it
