I am sooo throughly pleased in my investment in taking the facilitation training! I have felt supported and encouraged every step of the way and cannot wait to share this knowledge and experience with others. Thank you!01/18/2021
This training was absolutely wonderful and Lois was phenomenal! There is so much that I could say about the grief recovery method training but what I will say is that I walked away from this training very confident and educated. Thank you for helping me to unpack my own grief so that I may now help those who reside in my community.12/22/2020
Lois Hall is excellent! She not only explained the concepts, but gave effective real life examples. She is passionate about the process and about us as her specialists. She was patient, empathetic, efficient, understanding, professional, warm, nonjudgmental, open, transparent and gave those of us in the class permission to be the same by her example. She made the 4-day experience powerful, cathartic, and empowering. I felt comfortable being transparent and vulnerable in a setting with 10 other people I didn't know. By the end of the four days, we had become a closely bonded group of specialists excited to serve hope to our community out of loving hearts. Lois led by example and I'm so thankful for leadership. I've gained a friend, a mentor and rich resource as I pursue a career i Grief Recovery. As I told Lois on the last day, I'm ended the 4-day training far healthier and much stronger than when I arrived on the first day! Thank you!12/22/2020
Thank you for the excellent training! It was a joy to spend time with Ed and the group to work through the grief recovery method and learn how to apply it as a specialist. Many thanks!12/10/2020
This program helped me identify losses throughout my life and understand why things haven't worked in the past. Its a very proactive program that helps identify what is incomplete so you can complete and let go of unfinished dialog that took up space in my head, making room for other dreams and allowing me to live lighter.12/10/2020
