Hold Me Gently Through This Journey
Grief and loss are universal experiences but the emotional journey is a very personal one. Hold Me Gently Through This Journey is an easy-to-use workbook that teaches a simple physical technique to remove emotional distress. This hands-on technique can be used on yourself or others.
Hold Me Gently Through This Journey was originally designed and written for hospice and palliative care patients, their family members and their expanded circles of caregivers. It helps them to gain a peaceful acceptance of death and dying. Over time we have found it to be effective for all people experiencing any kind of sudden or catastrophic loss (divorce, loss of employment, relocation, etc) leading to grieving.
The simple method described in this book is based on specific acupressure points that release the emotional blocks and ease movement through the stages of grief (Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and finally, Acceptance).
The technique in this book requires no special equipment or training. It relies on the most basic and potent forms of healing – the human touch. With easy expert direction you can maximize the power of your touch to relieve emotional distress and offer physical comfort for yourself or others. It is easy to follow and harmless.
We understand the simple fact that everyone dies and that grief and loss are universal experiences. We want to help. We offer training in this method to hospice and palliative care organizations and other agencies and individuals. We also recognize there are many people who are experiencing the anguish of grief from other losses that may not need hospice or have acupuncture resources available to them. Contact us for further information about training at your location.
We offer you and yours best wishes for peace and deep healing.
