If someone you love has died, Mindfulness & Grief is for you. Let us help you navigate the icy waters of grief and adapt to your life after loss. Not only will you learn how to ease the physical symptoms of loss but also how to calm your mind and comfort your heart as well.

This site is also for professionals who help people who are grieving. Nurses, doctors, hospice workers, therapists, social workers, meditation and yoga teachers can benefit from these teachings on a professional and personal level. 


Grief is like an umbrella—beneath it you will find physical, emotional, spiritual, and social elements—to name a few. It is normal to feel disoriented, and many of us wonder if we are coping with grief in the “right” way.

Coping with grief when your loved one has died may seem like an impossible task. Few words bring comfort, and there is no quick fix for a broken heart. In addition to overwhelming sadness, many of us feel stuck and unsure of how to proceed with life after loss.

My online grief support focuses on mindfulness-based activities, such as meditation, journaling prompts, and self-reflection exercises that I offer to my students who attend my classes in person at the Frederick Meditation Center.

Nothing can prepare you for grief, nor is there a right or wrong way to deal with it, but sad music is an easily accessible and highly effective tool that can help you begin to heal.
