Grief is a universal human experience that touches us all in different ways over the course of a lifetime. Because it is often misunderstood, we may find ourselves alone in navigating the emotional tsunamis and their wake with few resources and little support. This can leave us feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, frightened, and isolated.

Voyages works closely with clients to nurture them through the pain of loss to the possibility of life. Some prefer to navigate grief on their own or in the privacy of their intimate relationships, while others appreciate guidance and support to help them process and navigate everything that comes up. Whatever your style of dealing with grief may be, the following list of resources can support you in discovering the best path forward for YOU.

Come “home” to yourself with our free gift meditation!

Like all of nature, we need connection and nourishment to thrive…

Learning to connect with yourself and trust your journey is a powerful way to transform your experience from anxious to exuberant. Give yourself permission to dive deep into your own healing.
