The 4-day training was amazing and transformational. Our facilitator Ashley set an atmosphere that was very safe to be open and transparent. Our reasons for taking the training were different for each of us who participated, however - We All Connected! I completed the Grief Recovery Method training learning the process and experiencing its impact on moving forward in purpose. I also completed the training with individuals who were once strangers but now will forever be significant to my life's journey.11/04/2020
The Grief Recovery Method is one that delivers on its promises. In the past, I had worked through my father’s death, but this program helped me to work through all the unfinished business I had not even realized I had with my father. It was by going through the process of the method that I gained so much insight, freedom and peace. I cannot wait to offer this program to my clients as I personally know the profound changes they will experience.09/29/2020
The Grief Recovery Method online training exceeded all my expectations. Our trainer was Ashley was amazing. She made each one of us feel welcome and valued. I learned so much more about the grieving process than I thought would be possible in a 4 day online course. I would recommend it to anyone!09/29/2020
My first deep experience with grief was when my dad suddenly passed. I was given a small book with 'the stages of grief'--I tried hard to process through the stages. I did ok, but it wasn't until about 15 years later, when our little girl died, the pain and sorrow too deep--and the stages didn't even apply. I processed the grief differently, on my own. I couldn't ever find a resource "about grief" to offer anyone that didn't lead them to 'stages'--imagine my delight when I came across the GRM Handbook!! Not only do I have a signature story--but I am now equipped to help others take action every single day--as they choose to process. Thankful, that is ME!!!09/29/2020
The training was incredible. Ashley was an amazing facilitator and lead the 4 days with her heart. She was fully present and available to each one of us. Our group was amazing and I truly believe it was because of the environment Ashley created. The Grief Recovery Method is truly a life changing experience and I highly recommend others to take the steps to complete the relationships in their lives so they can be free!08/26/2020
This is an emotionally intense program but 100% worth it. I gained so much insight into my own incomplete relationships and feel grateful to have come across this program.07/29/2020
