Grief Recovery Method was very informative and life changing. Susan was absolutely awesome! She gave us her best every day and her compassion was very warming and needed. Choosing to attend and become a grief recovery specialist was the best choice ever! It opened my eyes to new concepts and tools I look forward to implement in my own life and helping others in their healing process.

As you all know, people are extremely misinformed about how to deal with grief. The last 5 years of my life have been nothing but traumatic, and once my dad died I knew that if this level of trauma keeps occurring, I'll be nothing but a shell of a person if I don't deal with this loss effectively and quickly. I knew it was going to be now or never... I've been to counselors and therapists and group grief sessions before, but none of them seemed to be as specific and focused on my recovery as much as this method. I was angry (at my dad and God), sad, confused, bitter, happy, in denial, lethargic and apathetic all at the same time but the main emotions that I felt were anger and apathy. I really didn't believe I would ever heal from the hole that my dad left in not only my life but my mother's and my sisters'. But this method really did give me the tools to hope again. There were so many things left unsaid to my dad that it started to form a bitterness in my heart that consumed my thought patterns for months. But when I wrote that letter...apologized for the things I needed to apologize for, forgave the things I needed to forgive, and just said the things that needed to be said, it freed me from the burdens of being resentful and gave me the room in my heart again to be hopeful and energized about my life. I am now more hopeful and energized about not only recovering from the other broken relationships that I need to work on but also about what God is going to be able to do now that my heart was more open to his words. I would not have been able to go on this journey had it not been for Susan's grace and patience with me. She went above and beyond to make sure I knew how to do the homeworks and even stopped to just absorb everything that, I believe Satan, was trying to throw at me to distract me from this process of healing and recovery. I even want to give this resource to the Greater Nashville Church and want help others heal from their losses too. I am in the process of becoming a wounded healer...and I can't tell you how much joy that gives my heart, to know that I feel empowered enough to help others despite my scars. Thank you so much for continuing this amazing work and giving me the opportunity to learn from all of your amazing minds and soft hearts. Thank you 1000 times infinity! Sincerely, Aziza Hart

The Grief Recovery Method is fantastic! Extremely effective! I am incredibly thrilled to get my new GRM Family! Supportive line! In just 4 days, not only we learned a lot of new tools and method, but also we connected that we all found the same way that we have known each other long. It was a true blessing was The loss graph and relationship graph were unique tools! I have been given misinformation in my entire life, and NOW I learn how to use these tools to deal with any future losses. For myself, family, friends, community, and the world. And last not the least, my words are not enough how to thank Susan Dindinger for her passion and dedication to teaching, supporting, and genuinely connecting to each one of us. I'm thankful for this fantastic opportunity. I strongly challenge everyone to join this program to all those out there suffering from any loss.

For anyone who may be feeling fear or indecision about taking the GRM Certification, I say, go for it! I always felt valued and welcome in the classroom. Susan Dindinger was my instructor and was so clear in teaching the method, and compassionate in taking me through the process myself. I am so glad I signed up!

It is so comforting to find an answer to your pain! The grief recovery method is a light in the midst of the darkness and confusion that a lost has left. I encourage anyone to go through the certification training because we are all grievers and many are waiting to be helped.

I chose the Grief Recovery Method training based on my wife's research. We both had suffered significant loss in recent years and knew we needed guidance. Other than my personally adopted motto that "time heals everything" I knew absolutely nothing. This was a plus because I walked in with an empty cup. By the time we concluded our training, I not only felt 50 pounds lighter but felt equipped to finish up my own completion and begin helping others find their own completion. I walked into the training thinking it was "rather expensive" and walked out thinking, "What a bargain!" I'm looking forward to more training.

While emotionally and mentally exhausting, the training was just what I was looking for to be able to work to master the Grief Recovery Method to be able to help others. Susan had an excellent way of building trust with all of us and made me feel very safe as I worked through the process. The change in me is already evident! I am grateful to the Grief Recovery Institute and to Susan! I am eager to complete all of my incomplete relationships that were identified in my Loss History Graph. Thank you!

I truly had no idea how much I didn't know, even contributing to some of the myths & misinformation concerning healing from loss. This thing has been remarkable in its clarity and practicality. I wish everyone knew about GRM!

My trainer (Susan D) was phenomenal! She was extremely compassionate and supportive and thoroughly knowledgeable of the GR Method. I can genuinely say that I feel greater peace about childhood issues that I have been carrying around for much of my adult life. I left the training program filled with enthusiasm about sharing this method of healing with others, both professionally (in ministry) and personally (family and friends).

Although I was very reluctant to go to class, I found it rewarding to push through. I found the structure useful as I worked through my strong emotions of grief and loss.

I was at the point where even the thought of my brother and his mental illness would give me anxiety and send me into a panic for days. I was wrestling with resentment toward him as well as incredible fear surrounding his condition and behavior. I couldn’t physically be around him without feeling tense and erupting with anger. Doing Grief Recovery was the one of best things I have ever done in my life. I don’t feel panic or anger toward my brother - I feel love, compassion and sincere gratitude for him. I can enjoy my brother for who he is and where he is at in his own process and his burdens are not mine to bear. I was able to grieve some losses in our relationship without carrying the pain forward. Now our relationship is defined by fondness and appreciation - the pain is in the past and it will stay there. I will never be the same after Grief Recovery. This method works and it gave me back the parts of me and this relationship that I so desperately was missing and needed back. Thank you so much for this work - it changed my life.

Prior to The Grief Recovery Method training, I had been dealing with grief for over 30 years. I had tried therapy and working through it myself but nothing worked until I experienced the method first-hand in certification training. I left feeling lighter and more positive about the relationship I completed. And, I now have the tools to complete other relationships, as well as be a better listener and communicator. This is a very well thought-out program that I highly recommend.

The whole experience was life changing. To be able to go through all the steps on how we ran use the Grief Recovery Method for ourselves was amazing! To be able to apply it to my own life so I can be better equipped to teach others was phenomenal. I greatly appreciate Susan and how well she trained me how to help me with my own grief as well as how I can help others get through their own was astonishing. From beginning to end the material had my attention. I highly recommend for everyone to either go through the program or get certified!!!

The training is excellent. It asks you to do the work before you ask others to work on their grief. It helped me face and complete old incomplete relationships. I am very excited to offer these classes to my local community and to our hospice patients and their families.
