The webinar Thanksgiving: Boost Your Immune System with Love that Marty posted above was good. I found it well worth the hour. 

Dr. Bernie Seigel's language was a little colorful but I found him humorous and he had many great quotes ~ 

"Love your life and love your body."

"Being a survivor doesn't mean being strong."

"Quiet your mind."

"You can't control the world, but when you control your thoughts, you bring order."   

I will look up his book Love, Medicine, and Miracles by. Bernie Seigel, MD  ~ Dr. Gloria and Heidi Horsley have excellent talks on their Open to Hope site

I'm glad you found it helpful, Anne, and I appreciate your comments ~ but I don't think I would recommend this webinar to anyone whose grief is fresh and new, and I'm not sure the content had very much to do with coping with the holidays, either. Bernie Siegel is a lovely man, but I think to some folks his suggestions may have seemed somewhat simplistic and unrealistic, especially to a person still struggling in the acute phases of grief. Bernie is neither a psychiatrist nor a trained psychotherapist or grief specialist, but rather a retired pediatric surgeon who advocates self-healing, meditation and "leading an inspired life." He is a prolific author who has written several popular books and articles ~ some may recognize him as the author of Love, Medicine and Miracles: Lessons Learned about Self-Healing from a Surgeon's Experience with Exceptional Patients.

Clearly Bernie loves to talk and to share his stories, but throughout the hour I thought that both Heidi and Gloria Horsley had a hard time getting a word in edgewise, much less sharing a question or comment from the listening audience ~ so I'm not sure this was the best format to present his ideas and points of view.

Thanks for your comments, Marty. I also agree that the talk would not be helpful to grievers nor did it really cover anything about the holidays unless one focuses on changing our thoughts.  He is a fast talker and both Dr. Gloria and Dr. Heidi had a hard time getting a word in otherwise. I did focus more on the quotes and found the quotes to be helpful to anyone. The topic after all was about boosting our immune systems and not so much about grief during the holidays.  I liked the idea of quieting our minds. Perhaps putting him on a health topic would be more appropriate.
