When Expressing Sympathy A Gift May Speak Louder Than Words

Sympathy messages can be one of the most difficult types of expression to write. When someone we care about is experiencing a great loss, it is difficult to know just what to say. No matter how hard you try, it may be nearly impossible to express yourself and doing so inadequately can even cause more pain and discomfort.

Grief Massage

I usually go to Maine to relax and immerse myself in the beautiful scenery, it is my nature therapy. The ocean with the sounds of waves rolling onto the beach, the hikes along rocky cliffs that inspires a sense for me that time ceases to mean anything and I could walk all day. I go on sunrise and sunset hunts, photo hikes to find the most interesting rocks, shells, cliffs, flowers, drops of water hanging from tips of leaves. Making the trip more special has always included the opportunity to visit friends.

Healing and Adapting to Grief and Loss: Sacred Spaces

Connecting with loved ones who are no longer with us is a vital part of healing and adapting to grief and loss in our life. There are many ways we can establish and maintain connections but equally important is finding a meaningful place - a sacred space to do just that. There could be one or there could be many, but the 'right' space for you is the one that fits in with your lifestyle, your belief system and speaks to your heart with a simple aaahhh, this is it.
