But THRIVING after a loss is possible!
Hi love, I’m Emily.
I was 32 when I lost my husband Ian to Uveal Melanoma almost four years ago, leaving me a widowed mom of two.
If you had told me that thriving after my loss was possible I would have rolled my eyes and politely told you to f*ck off. Kidding (kind of).
I was angry about my husband’s death.
I didn’t sign-up to do this alone! I struggled to navigate head of household, manage the finances and parent by myself. I found myself constantly snapping at my kids out of pure overwhelm and exhaustion as I rode the endless waves of grief.
I felt isolated being a 32-year old widow.
Everywhere I looked there were happy couples and families. Why me? Why us? I thought. When I tried to connect with friends, family, or even my therapist, it felt like no one could understand what I was truly going through.
I felt sad grieving the life I loved, and totally lost trying to re-build a new one.
I wasn’t ready to entertain the idea of thriving after a loss. Surviving was all that mattered.
After months of sitting in my pain and questioning how the heck this happened to me I started shifting the questions from why me? To … what now?
I started getting curious about grief, loss and other people’s stories of struggle. I began connecting with other widows online. I found coping mechanisms for my big emotions thru exercise and writing; and built a community based on these pillars.
When my outside circumstance left me feeling powerless, I learned how to cultivate power from within. I felt empowerment, resilience and growth from my loss and realized this massive rupture in my life was an invitation to go deep beneath the surface, thru the layers of conditioning, societal and religious beliefs, and ancestral patterns -- into the dark shadows, to uncover my essence and identity, my purpose and truth...
To create whatever life I wanted!
In four short years, I’ve turned my pain into my power. Instead of feeling trapped by my circumstance of loss, I’ve turned it into an opportunity for transformation. (Without bypassing grief or “letting go”)
During this 3-day event, I’ll show you how you can too!
Imagine feeling …
Validated by a community who understands
Empowered having tools in your toolkit to cope with grief
Supported as you adapt to this new normal
Proud of your resilience and post-traumatic growth
Hopeful as access trust and surrender in the face of uncertainty
Excited about the possibility of the life you are re - building
This is possible for you (RIGHT NOW)!
Why Loss Leaves you feeling Powerless
Grief & loss are not talked about in our society. So when a loved one dies, it can feel extremely victimizing.
You might believe that you are the “only one” who has faced this type of tragedy. It doesn’t seem fair that the rest of world keeps moving when yours has stopped.
You feel alone in your struggle. Lost with no guidebook to do grief.
Hopeless as you look to the foreign future, and paralyzed by your circumstance.
These feelings are valid. An awful thing happened to you. Your person died without your consent.
You have a right to feel disappointed, sad and angry that life treated you unfairly.
You have been victimized.
But you are not a victim.I'M IN
What is Empowered Healing?
"Struggle is universal.
Victimhood is not."
Dr. Edith Eger
Empowerment comes from recognizing that despite how hopeless you feel after a loss, you are not powerless.
No, you cannot change the past. But you can change the tragic trajectory moving forward.
Empowered healing is recognizing that you have a choice in this!
That can take back control over your life.
That there are tools, communities, and guides that can support you.
That you can grow alongside your grief, and...
That you can consciously create a life worth FULLY LIVING again!
So, if you are…
- Feeling stuck, hopeless or lost navigating life after loss
- Open to the idea of taking back control and finding empowerment thru grief
- Desiring tools in your toolkit and a community to support you
Then, this workshop is for you!I'M IN
What to Expect...
Day 1: MOVE
The summit will kickoff with a conversation on coping with grief thru movement. We’ll explore how emotional memory and trauma gets stored not just in your brain, but also in your body, and how exercise can be a powerful tool to get “un-stuck” and actually feel your emotions. Ready to get moving? Good! You’ll also have the opportunity to experience firsthand the healing power of movement with a short gentle yoga-flow and breath-work session lead by moveTHRU Movement Coach Yole Anna Hines.
Day 2: GROW
The next day we will have a chance to connect as a community in small breakout rooms and come together to learn about post-traumatic growth. We’ll uncover why post-traumatic growth might occur after a loss, how to hold the duality of personal growth & grief, and key mindset shifts to support resilience and personal transformation as you navigate life after loss. I’ll invite you to reflect on your own growth, celebrate it!, and share any struggles or stuck-points to receive custom coaching in a group setting.
Day 3: THRIVE
We will wrap up the summit with a conversation on how thriving after a loss is possible! Get ready to dive deep beneath the surface as we explore concepts of identity, SELF, sub-conscious programming, shadow work and meaning making. You’ll learn specific tools that can help you explore your inner world and unearth your truth to find meaning and purpose in life after loss. By now, you might believe me …
That thriving is possible!
