Join Grief Expert Paula Shaw as she explores the grief that is being experienced worldwide as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Whether you’ve lost your job, your relationship, your normal routine, a loved one to the virus, or faith that your government will keep you safe, everyone on the planet has been touched by this virus. We are herding mammals who can no longer herd, and this has undoubtedly created high levels of pain and discomfort for all of us.
Paula discusses how loss leads to change, change leads to discomfort, and discomfort manifests as the many faces of grief. Grief can look like sadness and overwhelm. It can look like anger, despair, or defeat. It can show itself as the agitation of anxiety or cause someone to be frozen in fear. Each person experiences grief in their own unique way.
Paula also blows the lid off of the myth that there are 5 stages of grief and explains how they are really the 5 stages of death and dying, which can be very different than grief. Paula believes that rather, there are 7 dimensions or phases that many people go through but not necessarily everyone.
After identifying the problem, Paula will take you through what to do to heal your grief and get back to living your life in the way that you were meant to. She shares some of her favorite tools and processes to help with the healing journey. Don’t miss this show. It will help you to understand and identify your own grief and empower you to heal it and go forward.
