Physiology First: A Body Centered Approach to Grief

When someone we love dies, it rocks our world. Grief hits you like a ton of bricks. If you do not start dealing with it, it can get imbedded in the cells of your body. When this happens, it can lead to an array of physical disruptions; loss of sleep, too much sleep, digestive issues, loss of focus, and an inability to concentrate, just to name a few.

In this 60 minute interactive workshop, you will learn how to release grief from the cells of your body. In this 3 step process, you will become aware of where you are in your grief, change your state and create a new identity for yourself. From this reframing how you look at your grief, you will have some new tools and strategies to be able to move forward in your grief while managing your physical, emotional and mental well-being.

When: Tuesday, August 6, 2024 7 – 8 PM ET

Where: Online

Cost: FREE! Or with an optional donation to support COPE families. RSVP via Eventbrite
