What we're about
ABOUT THE GROUP
This group offers mystical tools such as ritual, ceremony, shamanic journeying and writing/drawing processes for exploring death and grief through a metaphysical lens. It serves as a foundation for an in-depth "Grief as a Mystical Journey (http://www.consciousgrieving.org)" workshop, which will be offered twice each year.
This is NOT a grief support group where we share our personal stories and discuss our feelings. It is an experiential forum for developing multi-cultural spiritual practices to better understand the journey of the soul. The content shared in these gatherings is of interest to end-of-life professionals, bereaved individuals and spiritual seekers.
ABOUT THE ORGANIZER
Terri Daniel, MA, CT is a hospice and hospital-trained clinical chaplain certified in death, dying and bereavement by the Association for Death Education and Counseling. Her work focuses on assisting dying and grieving individuals to discover a more spiritually spacious understanding of death and beyond.
Terri's unique perspective on birth, death and the journey of the soul helps the dying and the living find meaning and healing through meditative and ritual practices that open a conduit to other dimensions. Her unique form of "radical mysticism" incorporates elements of Buddhism, Shamanism, ancient pagan practices, Gnostic Christianity and other spiritual traditions to break down limiting beliefs about attachment, forgiveness, divine judgment and negative experience.
Terri is the author of three books on death and the afterlife: A Swan in Heaven: Conversations Between Two Worlds; (http://www.swaninheaven.com/)Embracing Death: A New Look at Grief, Gratitude and God; (http://www.embracingdeath.net/) and Turning the Corner on Grief Street: How Trauma and Loss Can Transform Us. (http://www.griefstreet.com/) She is also the founder and president of the Afterlife Education Foundation and producer of the annual Afterlife Awareness Conference (http://www.afterlifeconference.com/).
