Grief is the emotion we feel when we lose something we held dear to us. Grief happens when we lose a loved one, face financial loss, loss of a pet. Grief can occur during the ageing process, when a relationship breaks down, or a child leaves home. The length of time we experience grief for is as unique as the way we grieve. Depending on our personality, the culture we belong to, and the nature of your loss. On this page there are some videos to help in understanding grief.
One of the most challenging things to deal with in life is grief. Quest for Life provides a safe space where you can be with your grief, understand it more deeply and incorporate it into your life.
How mindfulness can help us work through grief
Most people think of grief as it relates to relationship losses. Yet grief, especially "disguised grief", underlies emotional reactions (e.g. bitterness, blame, grudges, hostility, negativity, regret, or resentment) or it is connected to different kinds of losses . . . losses tied to life experiences that occurred in childhood or through adulthood.
These losses involve facing what your childhood or adulthood, was - or was not - by recognising the difference between what you needed, wanted and dreamed of and what really occurred. Psychologist, Dr. Joan Rosenberg notes the healing nature of grief as she describes her five step framework, the Grief Reset Protocol™, an approach that suggests that grieving and making sense of your life story can be a path to forgiveness and a happier, healthier life.
