Just Between Us – The Holidays Are Anything But Happy When You’re Grieving the Loss of a Loved One

I decided that today I wanted to talk to you about a very important topic without any guests– just you and me today.
 
I want to talk to you about Grief and the Holidays. 
 
When you are or someone you care about is grieving the death of a loved one, or you are divorcing or recently divorced, or you or someone you love has been diagnosed with a life-threatening or chronic illness, the Holidays are anything but happy and joyful. You are dealing with a loss event; you are grieving; and grieving in contemporary society can be highly problematic.
 
So today I would like to spend our time together and talk about grief and grieving –just between us.
 
I hope this opportunity to be with me today is valuable and that at the end of this episode you are more able to heal and change the anguish of loss to wisdom and creative living.
