Offering your condolences to someone after they've had a death can be awkward. You want to be healing and supportive, but it's hard to know exactly how.
• Should you bring up the subject? How? When?
• What should you say? What should you do?
Offering meaningful and healing condolences is an art. This course teaches you the principles behind condolences, so you can respond in your own heartfelt way. I hope it's helpful for you.
With much love,

Learn to talk about what's true, even if it's hard
When we're living with the enormous pain that loss can bring, we need the support of our friends and family more than ever. The things people say and do matter to a bereaved person. They're part of what helps us to heal from loss.
A truly kind and healing condolence won't come from a template. Repeated words and gestures delivered without the energy of your heart feel empty and insincere. They can add to someone's pain, rather than diminishing it.
This 25-minute video lesson offers a focused teaching on the energetic and ritual principles behind condolences. It describes the qualities of a meaningful condolence and explains why others fall flat.
Discover what condolences are, and how they work,
and you'll find your own right words for any situation.
