What Is The Grief Recovery Method?
The Grief Recovery Weekend Personal Workshop guides grievers through a set of time-tested actions that will help them recover from their emotional pain. This workshop delivers The Grief Recovery Method® in a safe and supportive group setting over one weekend.

This interactive workshop will be a safe, confidential place to examine what you’ve been taught about loss, to explore your beliefs about grief, and will guide you in completing a set of actions that will enable you to move forward in your life with hope. Once equipped with these tools, you will be able to work through other losses that you may have experienced in your past.
