Does Your Grief Group Focus on Pain or Healing?

You've probably heard the term "big pharma" when discussing large pharmaceutical companies that might not have your best interests in mind. They want to keep your business, so they provide some solutions, but not necessarily lasting ones, because then they'd lose your business, i.e., money.

But have you heard the term "big grief"?

Big grief refers to the large grief-related businesses that focus more on your pain and suffering than your healing. They claim to want to help others but don't always offer lasting solutions. 


Because it's not part of their business model to help clients heal, just like big pharma doesn't want you to get off of their pill. If you stay brokenhearted, they keep your business. 

I don't want to have a pill that helps me live with diabetes. I want to figure out how to cure my diabetes. That would be a much better outcome for my body than just finding a pharmaceutical pill that was created in a lab that allows them to make a lot of money for the rest of my life. 

It's the same with grief. There are organizations and groups whose lifeblood is having you come into the fold and feel supported and comforted by the fact that another 2000 people in this nationwide group are brokenhearted like you, but where is the true healing?

I've personally worked with thousands of people who have moved forward after devastating, unimaginable losses and now lead full lives, so I can't sit by and watch these other groups because they focus on the pain rather than healing.

We want to help you move past the pain toward a life worth living, towards happiness, towards joy. We don't want your pain to become so familiar for so long that it becomes your new identity.




The Grief Recovery Method will give you the tools you can use for the rest of your life in seven or eight sessions, so you won't have to pay a monthly fee to us for the rest of your life. We may not have the smartest business model, but our goal is to help you heal, not line our pockets.
