Myths about Grief:
Time heals all wounds Replace the loss • Grieve alone • Gotta be strong for others Bury your feelings Keep busy Move or Change Location Suck it up buttercup Move On
Your feelings are normal and natural. The problem is that we have been socialized to believe that these feelings are abnormal and unnatural.
Whatever your LOSS is from:
- Death Divorce or End of a Relationship Loss of a Career
- of Trust of Faith of Safety
- Loss of Health of A Pet ....or more than 40 other Losses
People say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you what you need to do to accomplish that. The Grief Recovery Method® Outreach Program not only makes that possible, but provides partnerships and guidance to ensure that it happens.
NOTE:Now Completed: recent 8 SESSIONS PROGRAM over 4 WEEKSconcluded Oct 18 with 7 participants.

SPECIAL NOTE NOTE BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 2017:
I have resumed Services after being sidelined my own immediate family related grief journeys
I am pleased to announce that I became a Certified Grief Recovery ® Specialist,
whose flagship handbook helped me and thousands of other grievers with a variety of loss experiences.
I am eager to share this specific Method to help fellow Grievers.
New Groups can be formed anytime and in different locales.
You can also contact me to be included in groups or for one to one counsel.
Also, check into The Grief Recovery Institute website:.
Having explored and used Grief Recovery resources personally and as one of my Services,
I accessed more training for its Certification.
Shortly, I expect to be able to add Ontario Marriage Officiant to my Services.
Meanwhile, I continue to create, accompany, and facilitate Memorials and Funerals at
any place of your choosing as well as at any of our fine Funeral Homes.
Call me directly 705 493 9784 or ask your Funeral Director to do so on your behalf.
and for the beautiful service that you conducted. It was very meaningful.
We received many wonderful compliments from the people who were there." (funeral)
(May17) "Jeff, the most important moments of life are often shared with special people. Thank you for sharing in this time of sorrow. Thank you for the beautiful Celebration of Life you gave for Bruce Rodgers"
I have had the profound honour of accompanying families
through the planning and conducting of
Funerals, Memorials, and Celebrations of Life events.
Each has been as unique in tone and flavour as the person remembered.
Most occur in a Funeral Home, but others have been in locations special to the persons gathering to remember. Call me, or ask your Funeral Director to request my help. 705 493 9784 (with text).
Ask your Funeral Home Staff to contact me, or contact me directly.

A Seaonal Event in which we honoured our various losses : T H E S T O R Y O F M A R C H 2 1 s t 2016
"Circle of Life" at Sturgeon Falls Marina & Twiggs
Despite a convergence of challenges, a circle of life emerged!
A dozen folks generated supportive sharing and creative adjustments.
Ultimately, what was felt most,
was the goodness of supportive people present
from Cache Bay, Sturgeon Falls, and North Bay
together creating a brief Circle of Life
This group of grievers acknowledged losses
and marked the change of season with care and mutual understanding.
And those absent, were also present in unique ways, within and amongst us.
Even an Alberta friend joined us during her own prayer time
as well as sending us seeds to be included in our Spring planting!
Merci. Thank You. Meegwich.
