    in Current Events

    Have you been told to 'let it go', put those thoughts away, it is over and done with, or get on with it after a significant loss or painful event in your life?  Are you going to scream if someone else thinks they 'know how you feel' and begin to drill their story into the memories you are trying to recall and hold on to? There is help, write it down, pour your pain and words on to paper, and hold those dear to your heart under your pillow when you sleep.  Hurry, before the memories are altered with time, to capture them on paper. 


    Wendy Wolff, MPH and author of The Letter Writing Project will be sharing her story of loss and how writing letters became her personal journal.  Wendy believes we can 'let go' in our words and thoughts that are so deep and personal they can drop with tears on the pages.

    Grief and Loss: Suicide and Survivors of Suicide

    in Women

    Certified Integrated Transformational Life Coaches Vicy Wilkinson and Ingrid Sthare talk with listeners about things that are difficult and very uncomfortable to discuss as part of a series called Stuff That's Hard To Discuss. This first episode is about a subject that is very personal for both coaches, especially since one of their areas of expertise is helping people recover from huge losses and to actively engage in the grieving process, and they themselves have had a lot to grieve during the past year.  This episode shares information, tools, personal experiences with being a "survivor of suicide," and avenues of assistance for people suffering from depression and illness that can lead to suicidal thoughts, ideations, and actions, and for people who are grieving the loss of someone who has taken his or her own life.  


    You can find more about Ingrid and Vicy, and Complete Life Coaching's programs and services, including a group course for grief and loss called "Empowered Recovery:  Losing Someone Else and Finding YourSELF" at the website:  www.CompleteLifeCoaching.com.
