Grief Recovery Program

Welcome to Joy Camp, our Grief Recovery Program. One of the least acknowledged and least addressed concerns in our society is GRIEF, the normal and natural reaction to loss. Whether your loss is from: death of a loved one, divorce or end of a relationship, loss of career, loss of substance dependency, loss of trust, loss of dreams, loss of security, or loss of health. You also do NOT need to be in a group with others with the same loss to identify with them. This program works with a process that is helping everyone with unresolved emotional relationships with people or events associated with a loss.

Grief will continue to affect our lives and the lives of those around us adversely when we are forced to accept the many MYTHS ABOUT GRIEF: Time heals all wounds, Replace the loss, Be strong for others, Stay busy. For those who wish to resolve their loss issues and move beyond their grief, this program will guide them to a richer quality of life. Your life will become more enriched, more alive, and more fulfilled than ever before.

You are ready for The Grief Recovery Program when:

You are aware of the reality of the loss.
You are ready to take acceptance for your current emotional state.
You are ready to take action.
You are a compassionate listener.
You believe that you will get better.
You are not stuck in the blame game.
You do not use your loss story to get attention.
You do not compare your loss to others and their loss.

This program is affiliated with and endorsed by The Grief Recovery Institute and the Grief Recovery Method. We cover all the following steps in an educational format: awareness, acceptance and recovery action. Two formats are available: group and private sessions. Hosting at your site for a group only is available too!

A 12-week educational Grief Recovery Group Program is available for organizations that are interested in hosting this once a week, for 2 hours. This provides a reduction in costs to participants, confidential partnerships and bonding, the healing benefit of listening to another as well as expressing oneself. The group study is $399. Once a group forms it is no longer open to new members joining. This is not a public group support, rather a closed and focused, action-oriented recovery group. I offer JOY CAMP – Group a few times a year for my own clients, based upon class size.

A down payment ($50) may be made at the time of registration, and it may be made by credit card (MC/V), check, or cash. Payment plans are available. All monies are nonrefundable due to reserved seats (once yours is filled we cannot replace you!) but in event of emergency arrangements can be made to reschedule. All classes will be held at the Soul Nourishing office at 19315 FM 2252, San Antonio, TX 78266. Time, date and building/suite information will be shared with enrolled participants to ensure privacy and safety of everyone attending.

If YOUR ORGANIZATION wishes to host their own program for your group & have me teach, please contact me to make the arrangements! We can do that too for a group of 14-16!

Alternate option:

Don’t want to wait for the group and you’d rather work alone? Grief Recovery Private Sessions or JOY CAMP – Solo are available so we may meet privately to create a confidential, relaxing environment. We’ll meet once a week, for seven (7) consecutive weeks, for one hour (90 minutes max) to support you in your healing process. You will be provided reading assignments and weekly homework, which we review and discuss together. Registration includes your personal copy of the Grief Recovery Handbook. Upon completion, you will receive a certificate and participate in a completion graduation. Seven private grief recovery sessions are $549.

If you think either of these programs sound too rigid or dry for you, please contact me to discuss and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you have. You may also find client testimonials on the Testimonial link on this website, as well as on our LinkedIn site. This is our most popular program to date still and it changes lives!
