Is An Online Meditation for Grief Group Right For You?
Most participants will be at least 6 months into their grief experience, however this is not a requirement if you feel you are ready to participate.
If you are under the care of a medical or mental health professional, please review this program with them prior to enrolling. If you have intrusive images, hallucinations, or may dissociate, meditation may not be a skillful choice. Schedule a Clarity Call with Heather to discuss your specific circumstances or ask any questions.

I came to Heather’s programme when I was floundering after the death of my partner. I bought many, many different books on grief and loss but this particular book has become my trusted companion. The programme has been my life jacket in a very stormy sea of grief. I am the person who ultimately has to swim and get back to land but having this programme has given me hope that I will get there, in my own time and with the help of Heather and my companions in the online sessions.
Access to the virtual materials and especially the weekly online meetings with Heather are invaluable. Twelve months after the death of my partner, I use the meditations regularly and refer back to the book often and as I need to; certain chapters chime with my changing situations and are an anchor.
My alumni group has become a precious focal point, being with people from 3 continents in a virtual environment of trust and respect is so very powerful. I can only speak for myself, but I am starting to live with my grief and be able to think about a future again. With gratitude and love to Heather and my group.
