I collapsed at 42, not knowing my own grief from incompletely recognized and communicated feelings. At that time I was what I'd call "male challenged". LOL.
My losses would include my then primary work role, later my job, followed by loss of Mom, a Best Friend, then Best Friend Wife Life Partner, Dad, my home, and more.... We each have a story. I am still standing.
I learned to become " Ok, except when I was not". I did not know "if I was coming or going: so just did both" and learned to be "strong enough to be weak", all phrases I coined to guide myself.
Today, I am recovered and feel alive, despite and because of it all.
I am a Chaplain with a lifetime professionally assisting others as a multi-faith chaplain in psychiatric & general hospitals, correctional settings, and previously in churches, and in the community.
I realized that my primary passion was for grief care in all of its forms. I always noticed it and named it for others, then myself.
Society too often misses it and may not know how to deal with it Attention and resources may be limited.
Grief Recovery isstructured, clear, methodical, evidence-based, and most importantly, available! It helped me through mind bending losses, and became an effective primary tool to help others through the waves of crazy-making, soul wrenching, spirit crushing life changing losses and events.
My Life Learnings:
- Kindergarten taught me how to share;
- Sociology, about people;
- Master of Divinity, about God talk;
- Institute for Black Catholic Studies, to Sing & Move Spirituality;
- Clinical Pastoral Education, about Spiritual care and SELF discovery.
Post Kindergarten and the School of Life:
Grief Recovery Method deepened my ability to BE OPEN and SHARE & TALK about feelings, and accompany people to the DEPTHS of their pain.... and onward from sheer survival to feeling alive again through both the pain-tears and a joy-laughter. Don't do it all alone. I tried that. Check it out. www.griefrecoverymethod.com
8 two hour sessions (in person or sometimes online).
One to one: online, telephone, and other creative safe distancing ways (car to car; outdoors, and more).
Despite covid challenges some choose to celebrate with a smaller "rep" group and ZOOM it to others. We are trying things.
MEMORIALS & CELEBRATIONS OF LIFE.
We recently celebrated online via ZOOM. Graveside services, Memorials, along with Online Services can be imagined for most any location.
