Being With Grief: A half-day retreat on How Mindfulness, Self-Compassion and Nature Connection can help us to live with our pain.

There are some pains that cannot be taken away.  The grief we feel when we lose someone or something of great significance to us may be overwhelming and prompt a desperate search to find a way out of the suffering we are experiencing.  But no matter how hard we try; we cannot make it better.

In this daylong retreat we will offer a set of practices that can help us to find freedom in our suffering.  This approach based on mindfulness, self-compassion, and nature connection will help us to find a way of being with our pain that lessens its intensity as we experience compassion, a greater sense of meaning, and deep, heart-felt connection.

​Dr’s Kearney & Weininger presented this workshop at InsightLA to a very positive response and are excited to present it in Santa Barbara.

The workshop is for all who have experienced grief, whether recently or more distantly, and are interested in learning how meditation practices may be of help. It is suitable for both novice and experienced meditators.

This workshop is intended for the general public as well as healthcare professionals as well. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.

4 CE credits are provided for this workshop for psychologists, registered nurses, LCSW, LPCC, LEP, MFT, and LMFT
