The above webinar hosted by Drs Gloria and Heidi Horsley from Open to Hope with guest Debbie Rambis from Compassionate Friends reminding us again how we can get through the holidays by following some suggestions.

* If you have young children try to keep the holiday for them

* Accept a holiday invitation but let a friend know that you might have to take a break so the friend can let everyone know you are all right

* If there is a toast before a dinner include everyone, not just the one who is gone  

* Start a new tradition – make a wreath with some of your loved one’s favorite things on it or light a special candle or make a special ornament to add to the tree

* Find a way to give – there are many 

* Don’t assume that people know what you want – ask for help

* Exercise – grief can get trapped in our bodies – go for a walk

* Rest the mind before bedtime – work a puzzle

* Remember to breathe – there’s an app called CALM – it’s wonderful

* Laugh – it has the same effect as crying

* Don’t isolate yourself – keep some social connections

*  Have self-compassion – hugs are good

* Focus on the positive – it helps rather than being negative

* Don’t drink or use drugs – it will not help

Open to Hope is a good place to find helpful information as you work on your grief.

Compassionate Friends is also a good group – they have closed groups that you can join that focus on each type of loss  

This webinar was recorded and will be available for viewing at a later date

Difficult emotions are hard to shake. Ignoring them doesn’t really make them go away, and rumination just fuels the fire of suffering. During this workshop, you will learn how the physical sensation of emotion can be your ally during tough times and even provide you with inner wisdom and insight. Join Heather Stang, author of Mindfulness & Grief, for this free webinar from the TAPS Institute for Hope & Healing and the Hospice Foundation of America.

Thursday, January 17, 2019

If you missed the program or would like to share it with someone, it is available on the TAPS Institute webpage: https://www.taps.org/webinar/2019/meditation-for-coping.

A FREE 4-Week Online Course Beginning on January 28th

What if engaging with our fear surrounding death could help awaken us to the gift of life?
Beginning on January 28th, join the preeminent teachers on mindfulness, compassion, courage and end-of-life care for a free 4-week course to help you embrace birth and death in every moment.

Many Western societies encourage us to sweep death under the rug, but what if coming face-to-face with our aversion to death could actually transform us into more resilient, courageous, and compassionate beings for ourselves and for those we love?

Sitting in the truth of what arises in our lives - including grief, fear, and anger - helps us to break apart the quality of our defensive hearts, allowing boundless unconditional love to emerge.    

So how can we create a space where the possibility of finding freedom amidst discomfort can arise?   

This course features the wisdom teachings of Ram Dass, Roshi Joan Halifax, Frank Ostaseski, Robert Thurman and Krishna Das.
