Reimagine event - Conscious Grieving: Sacred Practices for Transforming the Energy of Loss

Hosted in partnership with the USF School of Nursing

Conscious Grieving: Sacred Practices for Transforming the Energy of Loss
“Pain that is not transformed will be transmitted.” --Richard Rohr

Grief shakes us loose from our spiritual lethargy by creating more than just a wound. It also creates an opening that can lead us to higher awareness if we allow it to take us there. To grieve consciously means that we go mindfully into the process, as fearlessly as possible, with our focus on inner transformation rather than external events. In this way, we are invited to view our suffering not as a random, meaningless experience, but as an invitation to explore our life’s purpose. Through the use of mystical practices such as guided inner journeying and sacred ceremony, we can acquire new and effective healing tools that are not usually found in traditional counseling, religious, or support group settings. 

Speaker: Terri Daniel, MA, MT, clinical chaplain, ordained interfaith minister and end-of-life educator certified in death, dying and bereavement by the Association of Death Education and Counseling

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
