Radical Self-Compassion: Navigating Grief During the Holidays & Winter Months combines experiential learning, guided meditation, partner and group sharing, and a type of yoga that specifically utilizes breath, sound, and movement to liberate feelings of physical pain and suffering that can accompany grief.
