Transitioning Trauma to Nirvana: A Parent’s Pilgrimage from Complex Grief to Complete Grace:

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is often an under-reported condition for parents whose children have transitioned. It can hinder our physical and mental health, and negatively affect our body, mind, and spirit. PTSD can prevent parents from connecting with their child in spirit and can cause the severing of other relationships. It is essential to understand that chronic traumatic stress does not heal in time, and that we need assistance in healing the trauma to stay peaceful and healthy.

Participants will learn how to create a sacred safe space to heal and discover natural remedies that safely and effectively assist the healing process. Judith will share ‘7 steps in bringing heavenly feelings to earth,” with acupressure pathways that quickly help us find our center of peace. Our intention is to honor our feelings, and know through our grieving, our love is what connects us—we are never separated in the infinite light of love. We can learn how to become more spiritually aware, “shining light parents,” by transcending our trauma—from complex grief to complete grace—by shining our child’s heavenly light of love through our own thoughts, words, and deeds.
