Grief - An Ending With a New Beginning
Grief represents an ending with a new beginning. It is the normal and natural response to loss of any kind or the change in any familiar pattern or behavior. Grief is not limited to death. Endings with new beginnings occur in all relationships, when we marry, separate or divorce, when we change schools, graduate or attend university, when we move for the first time, become parents or empty nesters, and when we change careers or retire. You can learn to develop the skills to move through each life transition as gracefully as a tree loses its leaves to make way for new life. All Seasons Coaching has been established to support you through each life transition. Melody Dawn will help you move through each ending to create your new beginning filled with joy and happiness. This is the final episode of Fifty Shades of Grief, an ending with a new beginning. Melody and Sandra will share their experiences from both sides of the radio and what they plan to do next.

Grief the Unspoken
What is Grief? Why don’t we talk about it? What are the myths society has adopted as a way of surviving grief? Why can’t you get over grief? Grief is not talked about a lot because it’s uncomfortable and scary for some. Grief The Unspoken is designed to bring grief awareness into the workplace, schools, health services and the home. Experiencing loss and grief can be overwhelming for anyone. People experiencing grief need support. They will not get over a loss or know how to let go and move on without the right tools and support. Grief Awareness Day is being designed to help us all become more aware of the needs of grieving people. It is an opportunity for all of us to raise awareness of the painful impact that the death of a loved one can have in the life of a human being. It is an opportunity to make sure that all who are grieving receive the support they need.

Dementia - A Different Kind of Grief
Dementia – A Different Kind of Grief Dementia brings about many changes in familiar patterns and behaviors. Dementia can mean uncharacteristic angry outbursts or a complete loss of communication. Those living with dementia may drift in and out of the present moment while obsessively revisiting the past. This means a loss of relationship with who they were and a new relationship with who they’ve become before the final physical loss. Dementia grief is a delicate dance between now and then.

Each ending always brings with it new beginnings. Life isn’t about avoiding, suppressing or numbing the pain of loss and grief. Life is about learning to embrace each loss experience and the natural emotional responses that follow as gracefully as a tree loses its leaves to make way for new life. Grief will crack our hearts wide open. Once we journey through grief we can look back with a deep knowing that our life couldn’t be any other way. It is in our darkest moments that we are called forward to let our light shine its brightest. As we travel through our experience of loss and change we begin to see, hear and feel Grief’s Wisdom. It is this wisdom that guides us forward as it deepens our experience of love and the joy of living.

Your Grief Story
Everyone has a grief story. Your grief story may include a loss of relationship, loss of trust and respect, loss of health, mobility, vitality or love. It may also include a loss of hopes and dreams. Your hopes and dreams may have been about family, relationships, children, love, success, finances, health and wellness or career. Your grief story starts with any significant loss and continues through your darkest moments. It includes your coping strategies, figuring out your new normal, doing your grief work, and creating a new life after loss. Your grief story may even propel you into your life’s mission. Learning to complete each chapter of your grief story will allow your vital life story to unfold. Charmaine will share how her grief story, and a loss of hopes and dreams, propelled her into a life that she is passionately living.

The 6 Myths of Grief
The majority of incorrect ideas about dealing with loss can be summed up in six myths which are so common that nearly everyone recognizes them. Most people have never questioned whether or not they are valid. The 6 myths are: • Time heals all wounds • Grieve alone • Be strong • Don’t feel bad • Replace the loss • Keep busy Just looking at the myth that “time heals” creates the idea that a person just has to wait and they will feel better. We have known people who had waited 10, 20, 30, and 40 years, and still didn’t feel better. And, we know that they would tell you that not only had time not healed them, but that it had compounded the pain. The other five myths carry equally unhelpful messages. John James will give you the 37 year time tested truth that these 6 myths do nothing to support you in your grief recovery.

Grief 101 - What they don't teach you in school
We’re taught how to speak, read and write. We’re taught to listen to what is said but we’re not taught how to listen to what we feel. We’re taught basic first aid and how to treat a broken arm but we’re not taught how to treat a broken heart. Children intuitively know how to process the emotions associated with loss but then they’re taught not to. During this episode Chase will share his experience of the Grief Recovery Method and how he relearned to process his emotions in a normal, natural and healthy way. He will also share how becoming emotionally complete enabled him to passionately step into the joy of living.
