    Benjamin Scott Allen discusses tips for self-care in the holidays

    in Self Help

    Feeling the loss of the ones you will always love is daily, but special days – such as birthdays, anniversaries and holidays – can magnify all the emotions, the memories, the missing… and the love. Benjamin Scott Allen discusses 5 tips for self-care in the holidays. Get the ebook 5 Tips for Self-Care in the Holidays.


    This show is about healing loss. Whether it is the loss of a loved one, a relationship, a job, or a dream, we find ourselves lost in another world. What was before no longer is. This is the world of the Afterloss.


    It is our goal to share this world together and to help each other navigate this new experience. We are here to explore what was lost and what is left, and find a new way to relate to both. Loss is a part of life, and we all deal it differently.


    Benjamin is the author of Out of the Ashes, Healing in the AfterLoss. This book is about profound loss and forging a new path after his loved ones died. 


    When we give ourselves permission to lean into loss, this unique process of healing finds its own time and rhythm. There are parts of the Afterloss that only you know and only you can travel, but everyone who has experienced loss in one form or another knows the path has many footprints that can lead us into healing. We are not alone.


    Your hosts Benjamin Allen and Deborah Brown will share their journeys through grief into healing and create a container for others to explore, define and lean into loss of all kinds.  We meet here and now on the path to the rest of our lives, at the intersection of Loss and Hope ... may we all be blessed by sharing what we have lived and learned.

What about children?  What is “appropriate” if loss is part of your holiday season?  Learn the answers to these and many other questions surrounding grief or loss at the holidays, as well as how your holidays can still be a time of warmth and peace.

    Losing Your Parents Episode 12: Holidays + Communicating with Deceased Parents

    in Self Help

    About this episode: Today we’re talking about ways you can communicate with your deceased parents during the holidays.


    About this show:
    I have lost both of my parents to cancer in my 20’s. When I was 22, I woke up next to my dad who had died and when I was 27 I watched my mom take her last breath.


    After being present for their illness and witnessing their deaths, I had to face life as a young person without them. I decided that it was important to me to connect with other people who have also lost their parents. I’m in my 30’s now.  I write and talk about my journey through healing my grief and working through life challenges that come up using creativity and self expression.


    My blog is LosingYourParents.org and my goal is to bridge the gap between grief and joy at every opportunity.

    Understanding The Loss of Your Pet

    in Pets

    What happens to you when your pet dies?


    The death of a beloved pet can mean saying goodby to a best friend.  Not only do you miss the companionship but this may have been your one source of unconditional and nonjudgemental love.


    Our pets come to symbolize many things to each of us.  To Judy Cameron, co-host, her dogs represented her children.  To Judy Helm Wright, co-host, her dog filled an empty nest. Imagine how a pet may reflect the ideal mate or parent or companion--ever faithful, loyal and welcoming us daily. Can you see in your mind's eye how strong this bond may be?


    We know how you feel, because we have felt the same way.  We understand your pain and acknowledge your sorrow.


    Give Yourself time to grieve


    As coaches, authors and pet parents, we truly do understand your grief. We recognize that you do not need anyone else's approval to mourn the loss of your pet, nor do you need to justify your feelings to others.  But, we offer a "Safe Place" to share your stories and be able to be open about your feelings right now.


    Join us on our weekly broadcasts as well as on our Facebook page--  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dealing-with-the-loss-of-a-pet/716509988445040  Return often to this Facebook page and find out exciting news about a pet loss support group and tele-classes.  You will be so glad you did.
