Ep 86 The Healing Power of Grief with Dawn Ford The Menopause Mindset

    • Mental Health

In many cultures, we are shown that a display of sadness and grief is unpalatable and unwelcome.  As people that go through menopause, this is bad news.  
Grief occurs when we experience any kind of loss or change.  It is not limited to death and bereavement.  So a rising of grief during menopause is natural. 
Learning how to navigate this internal change can often mean allowing ourselves to experience the sadness of loss.  But how do we do that when we are so biased towards 'getting over it' as quickly as possible.  
If you want to learn to understand grief a little more and how it might relate to your life, then this episode might be for you.  
In this episode with Dawn Ford, grief and loss specialist, we discuss:
💔 Making keepsakes out of loved ones clothes
💔 Why grief doesn't mean that we are broken.
💔 Why there is no way to grieve properly
💔 What helps us grieve.
💔 The definition of grief
💔 Why grief and loss work is not just for bereavements and deaths.
💔 The consequences of not dealing with grief.
💔 The link between menopause and grief.
💔 Grief happening in layers.
💔 Fear of the tears never stopping.
💔 Deconstructing the word recovery (do we ever fully recover?)
💔 What not to say when someone is grieving

If you're ready to soften your edges and allow yourself to melt into full acceptance of your feelings, then this episode is for you.
