THE WAY OF LOVE, GENEROSITY, AND GRIEF
A 9-Month Training Program

​Love is a profound opening of the heart that inspires compassionate, affectionate, and selfless actions. We all possess a boundless love and a natural desire to give it—a true and pure generosity. When we’ve been hurt, however, we naturally protect ourselves and hold back our love. Without awareness, that protection eventually turns itself inward and we suffer, hardening our heart in ways both large and small, seen and unseen. With awareness and healing, we can soften, open, and nurture a love that grows.

The Way of Love, Generosity, and Grief is a series of classes designed to explore these concepts in a safe environment, over time, with a small cohort, in a variety of interactive ways—readings and talks, discussions and questions, poetry, music and meditation. We’ll train in mindful self-compassion, compassion for others, patience and generosity. With spacious time and generous attention, we’ll come to understand and experience life through a new prism—that of the alchemy of Love, Generosity, and Grief. This training is drawn from the upcoming book of the same name, which will be used as our text.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  READ MORE
 

​NEW BOOK COMING IN 2017
​THE WAY OF LOVE, GENEROSITY AND GRIEF

WELCOME. I'm so happy you're here. I've been writing a lot lately, and have a new book in the works, The Way of Love, Generosity, and Grief: An Intimate Portrayal of Stitching the Heart Back Together 

During my 16 years working in philanthropy, I noticed that many of the people receiving our grants had a story or two about having come through a dark time, and as a result, created a life rooted in service to others. I could relate because I, too, years earlier, had founded a grief support center and written my first book, Being There for Someone in Grief, while healing from the murder of my best friend. This connection piqued my interest, and I began to notice everywhere               READ MORE                                                                                                                                           
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

When in the company of people in grief, I often hear them say it is rare to have someone among their family and friends who can “hold space” for them in a way that is quiet and calm—a spacious way that neither invades or evades. I wrote this book as a response to that comment. 

My deepest wish is that I have found just the right words to help you be there for someone you know or love, who needs your deep presence as they grieve.
