When we are faced with divorce, we go through a grief process. The death of our marriage brings the loss of the hopes and dreams we had as a couple, the loss of our normal family life, friends, community, etc. Grief is the normal reaction to loss. And, no two people will grieve their losses in the same way.

You'll learn that there is no "one size fits all" approach to grief recovery, and yet there are experiences we all share when overcome by grief.

There are a range of emotions - often referred to as the stages of grief - that you might experience with the death of your marriage: Denial, Anger, Ambivalence, Depression, and Acceptance.

In this show, Karen and Carrie explore what it means to grieve well and some of the "Rules of Grief" we have learned growing up that need to be consciously examined and set aside in order for you to move into acceptance of your losses.

Karen and Carrie will share practices and tools for assisting you in taking care of yourself while grieving including how to appropriately express and release your emotional energy with a sense of safety and permission to do so. The healing can begin with these simple practices and tools.
