Practice Pausing: 

How to Have the Courage to Sit with Your Truth

Modern life rarely acknowledges – and frequently pathologizes – grief.  But when we bring grief into consciousness and honor it, it can become part of a larger, positive experience of transformation and rebirth. Grieving can bring the soul to stillness, thus readying it for profound spiritual change.

Unresolved grief doesn’t require a death, although it most often begins that way. “Deaths” occur in other ways: of a dream, a marriage, or from rejection and betrayal. Unresolved grief can turn into acting out, substance abuse, too much physical exercise, overwork, or over-achievement. Because the pain may be too much to sit with, it appears to work itself out in self-harm.


During this presentation your audience will discover:
  • The 5 powerful tools to overcome grief and other painful emotions that everyone has access to right now
  • Howto “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
  • Howto practice pausing – starting immediately – including an interactive experience your audience will remember
  • Determining the kind of support you need and how to find it
