Wendy Black Stern – Transform Loss Into Life Reimagined

Transform grief into greater self-understanding, love, gratitude, and new possibilities with mindfulness and gentle somatic movement… in a supportive, compassionate virtual community.

Suffering a loss — of any kind — can be stressful, painful, and scary. We feel broken, overwhelmed, and vulnerable, as the world we knew crumbles around us.

Yet, ultimately the potent energies of these difficult emotions can be the impetus for profound transformation…

… for discovering more about who you truly are deep inside, as you experience a metamorphosis — the becoming of who you will be in the wake of your loss.

It’s not easy… and it’s quite natural to want to avoid the tsunami of feelings building within you.

In this new 7-week online journey with yoga therapist Wendy Stern, you’ll be gently and compassionately guided to open to these feelings… and learn how to release them.

Through simple mindfulness exercises, easy, yoga-based somatic movements, sharing circles, journaling, and meditation, you’ll learn how to tune in to your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies, and the emotions and sensations you hold.

You’ll discover how to track — and embrace — your evolution of identity, as you traverse the in-between place of knowing you’re not who you were, but not yet knowing who you’ll be.

You’ll discover how important it is to bring grief and its associated emotions to the surface to be healed and transformed into greater self-understanding, love, and gratitude.

Wendy will help you take small steps out of the darkness and into a sense that “everything is going to be okay.” She’ll help you build your faith and trust in a future that is slowly emerging within and around you.

Your heart will open… and you’ll begin to see the gifts in your journey — what you’re learning about yourself and the world, not in spite of your grief, but because of it.

When you can accept the part of yourself that has been forever changed, and you’re willing to sit in the fire of the unknown, Wendy teaches, you open to more love and gratitude, deeper self-knowledge, new possibilities, and a newfound purpose.

As Wendy discovered, out of your darkest pain comes your deepest love.

Over the course of this profound program, you’ll not only discover practices and tools to help break through any resistance to being with and working through your grief, you’ll also be welcomed and held by a loving and supportive virtual community that will be there for you the whole way.

Co-creating a safe container for doing this tender-hearted, important work together will be a primary focus of this course, with weekly community sharing circles guided by Wendy. Grieving in the collective offers you a reflection of your true nature and the light that can grow out of the darkness of your loss.

Welcome a Courageous & Compassionate Guide
There is no better guide to help you along this difficult path than someone who has successfully traversed it firsthand…

Wendy has faced the heartache and despair of great loss and emerged from the darkness into the light with hard-earned wisdom, a deepened sense of love, and empowering self-discoveries that have become the foundations of her teachings.

Through her own immense sadness over the loss of her 9-month-old son several years ago, she found her way “back” to a new life by melding mindfulness practices with the somatic movements of her yoga practice to create a holistic approach to grieving…

… a process that can help you gently and lovingly work through the difficult emotions of grieving… and into a new life you can treasure.

Wendy has dedicated her life’s work to supporting others in healing and transforming through the process of grief.

She has helped hundreds cross the bridge from the immense overwhelm of their grief to acceptance, letting go, deep gratitude, forgiveness, compassion, self-love, and a new reimagined life.

She shows us that from this powerful place of transformation, your newfound deepening of love and connection can ripple out to touch the lives of others.

Wendy’s is a story of transformation… a journey of healing and change. This is the true gift of grief… and it can be yours, too.

During this profound 7-week journey with Wendy, you’ll discover:

  • A feeling of connection within community that creates a safe container for vulnerability and authentic sharing
  • How somatic movement and mindfulness open the door to self-discovery, acceptance, and the release of difficult emotions
  • How gentle yoga therapy practices can support you in bringing old wounds to the surface to be transformed into self-understanding, love, and gratitude
  • An overview of the philosophy and primary teachings of mindful grieving
  • How to witness yourself and others and serve as a mirror and sounding board — which can ultimately open you to loving yourself more fully
  • A safe space in which to explore your authentic relationship with yourself and release old stories and self-limiting beliefs
  • A greater understanding of the word “acceptance” and how to gain support to release resistance to how your life is now
  • Guidance to explore your dreams, desires, and fears around change
  • Mindfulness and somatic movement practices to explore where you’re holding back and how to let go
  • The blocks that hinder your process of change and how to help your soul’s purpose be realized
  • Greater awareness and support to live the change you desire

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Weeks

In this 7-week transformational journey, Wendy will guide you through a mind/body/spirit approach to processing the emotions associated with grief, helping you open to the healing and new possibilities that await you in accepting and embracing your life reimagined.

Course Sessions Thursdays at 10:00am Pacific.

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, and experiential practices with Wendy. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to work through resistance to the feelings associated with grief — and receive the gifts that await you through acceptance, greater self-love, and gratitude.

Module 1: The Power of Grieving in Community — Creating a Safe Container (September 3)

We begin this journey by co-creating a safe space for your grief to be felt, expressed, shared, and healed. Together, we’ll create a virtual circle that offers unconditional love and acceptance — where all experiences and feelings are acknowledged and validated.

You’ll learn to be a witness for yourself and others, cultivating compassion, self- awareness, and connection. Trust will be created to invite greater vulnerability and authentic sharing.

And, we’ll explore the relationship between our thoughts, emotions, spirit, and physical bodies to create a learning community in which our grief serves as a catalyst for personal growth and transformation.

In this session, you’ll discover:

An understanding of the group’s sharing guidelines, fostering a greater sense of safety and connection to others who are grieving
A feeling of connection within community that creates a safe container for vulnerability and sharing
How somatic movement and mindfulness open the door to self-discovery, acceptance, and the release of difficult emotions
How gentle yoga therapy practices can support you in bringing old wounds to the surface to be transformed into self-understanding, love, and gratitude
An overview of the philosophy and primary teachings of mindful grieving
30 minutes of gentle movement to help you integrate the week’s teachings, your emotional shifts, and new self-discoveries

Module 2: Cultivating Profound Presence Through Body Awareness (September 10)

Opening to the belief that you have to “feel it to heal it,” you’ll dive deep into somatic exploration to cultivate greater presence and awareness of the sensations, thoughts, feelings, and spirit within you. You’ll learn how to track your emotions, including where they “live” in your body, and to courageously lean into your feelings, rather than avoid them.

You’ll also explore the art of holding sacred space for others and the power of being witnessed in your authentic expression. Through shared experiences of loss and a compassionate group presence, you’ll come to know and love yourself more fully.

In this session, you’ll discover:

How to feel your grief and notice the emotions and sensations held in your body, so you can move through and release them
Tools for cultivating greater awareness of your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies
How to witness yourself and others and serve as a mirror and sounding board — which can ultimately open you to loving yourself more fully
The value of grieving in the collective, which offers you a reflection of your true nature and the light that can grow out of the darkness of grief
30 minutes of gentle movement to help you integrate the week’s teachings, your emotional shifts, and new self-discoveries

Module 3: Unconditional Love & Acceptance — Exploring Your Relationship With Yourself (September 17)

When our hearts break open, there’s an inherent opportunity to explore our shadow aspects — those parts of ourselves we hide from or keep out of the light.

This week, through mindfulness practices and somatic exploration, you’ll learn to illuminate these shadow selves as pathways to supporting, loving, and accepting who you truly are.

Self-love is also born from acceptance of your loss — one of the most challenging aspects of the grieving process. Yet, when acceptance is connected to honoring and loving oneself through grief — regardless of how painful the circumstances — powerful transformation can occur. You can not only move through your grief, you can stop resisting yourself and your life, which opens the door to true peace​.

In this session, you’ll discover:

Greater self-understanding, compassion, and self-love through gentle yoga therapy and somatic movement
A safe space in which to explore your authentic relationship with yourself and release old stories and self-limiting beliefs
A greater understanding of the word “acceptance,” and support to release resistance to how your life is now
How to listen to your heart’s desires as you explore your relationship with acceptance, forgiveness, and self-love
30 minutes of gentle movement to help you integrate the week’s teachings, your emotional shifts, and new self-discoveries

Module 4: Grief as a Teacher — A Journey of Transformation & Uncovering Your True Self (October 1)

The journey of grief can be a catalyst for personal growth and transformation — when we’re able to sit quietly with ourselves and receive the wisdom that can only come from within.

This week, you’ll explore what you’re learning about yourself and the world, not in spite of your grief, but because of it. You’ll learn how to open yourself to the teachings of your loss and its hidden gifts.

You’ll be supported to shed the armor that protects your heart so you can be fully seen and loved for who you are.

In this session, you’ll discover:

The hidden teachings and gifts within the grieving process that enable you to allow more love and life to flow in
Increased clarity and awareness of what you’re learning about yourself, your relationships, and the world as a result of your loss
How you can bring the teachings of your grief more fully into your life as a pathway to gratitude
Your internal and external resources for accessing your inner wisdom and a greater sense of freedom in your life
How to be vulnerable as you explore the teachings of your shadow selves
An understanding of how you guard your heart, so you can become aware of when this is serving you and when it’s not
30 minutes of gentle movement to help you integrate the week’s teachings, your emotional shifts, and new self-discoveries

Module 5: The Evolution of Identity Through Loss — Opening to Who You’re Becoming (October 8)

When you experience a loss, a part of you dies — the person you once were before undergoing a metamorphosis. The identity crisis inherent in this process calls for you to grieve the loss of the old you… and at the same time, to be aware of and open to the potential of who you’re becoming​.

This can feel stressful, painful, scary, and vulnerable, but ultimately it has the power to lead you to profound transformation and a newfound sense of purpose. From this powerful place, you feel greater love for and a deeper connection to yourself — gifts that can ripple outward to touch the lives of others.

In this session, you’ll discover:

Support to explore the evolution of your identity through your experience of loss
The “Tunnel of Terror” as a metaphor to better understand your personal evolution of identity
Gentle guidance and support to grieve the parts of yourself that have died as you open to new parts that are ready to be birthed
Your true heart’s desires and your emerging path and purpose
An increased awareness of your inner spark and resiliency
Greater authenticity as you explore who you are now, as a result of your loss
30 minutes of gentle movement to help you integrate the week’s teachings, your emotional shifts, and new self-discoveries

Module 6: Embracing Change — Support for Tuning In to Your Purpose (October 15)

This week, you’ll discover how grieving can open you to passion, purpose, and even a willingness to change. The new you, percolating beneath the surface, needs your attention, and you’ll receive support in stepping out of your comfort zone to try on this new identity.

You’ll learn tools and practices for gaining courage to breathe life into the parts of yourself that are ready to emerge… exploring what brings you joy, connects you to others — and yourself — and ignites passion and purpose.

In this session, you’ll discover:

Guidance to explore your dreams, desires, and fears around change
Mindfulness and somatic movement practices to explore where you’re holding back and how to let go
The blocks that hinder your process of change and how to help your soul’s purpose be realized
Greater awareness and support to live the change you desire
30 minutes of gentle movement to help you integrate the week’s teachings, your emotional shifts, and new self-discoveries

Module 7: Planting Seeds for Transformation — Creating Positive Change in Your Life (October 22)

As you open to the energy of renewal and step into your new life with greater intention, you find that it is possible to hold joy and grief, love and pain, and to honor all aspects of yourself fully.

You’ve created space for the fullness of your grief experience and arrived at your center — the integration of the old and new you. You can truly feel your wholeness as a person, are better able to stay present, and can ride the currents of your transformation with greater ease.

In this session, you’ll discover:

That the process of renewal is a returning to yourself — again and again — to re-evaluate and honor what you feel, think, believe, and know yourself to be
How to let go of self-limiting beliefs to become more expansive and self-empowered

In this video, Wendy shares with you a simple, yet powerful practice that you can do each day to create a container for yourself to feel your emotions without becoming swallowed up by the intensity of your grief.

The Fearless Path of Mindful Grieving: 4 Tenets to Support You Through Your Journey of Grief & Transformation
PDF Teaching From Wendy Stern

Meditation is a powerful teacher when you’re grieving. These four principles of how to bring mindfulness into the grief process and transform yourself through your loss came to Wendy on the top of a mountain while she was sitting in deep meditation surrounded by the spiritual presence of her son, Noah. In this special offering, you’ll be invited to look within and open to greater love and understanding of yourself and the wisdom that comes through your loss by learning how to live in the present moment, open your heart to feel more, be vulnerable and authentic, and transform pain into love.

Broken Open
Audio Dialogue With Mirabai Starr and Elizabeth Lesser

Loss breaks you open, yet it can awaken you to new and radically authentic ways of being. Mirabai Starr (author, spiritual teacher, and certified bereavement counselor) speaks with renowned author and inspirational speaker Elizabeth Lesser (frequent Oprah guest, author of Broken Open and Marrow, and co-founder of Omega Institute) about Elizabeth’s experience as the donor for her sister’s bone marrow transplant, and companioning Maggie as she died a year later. As humans we learn, grow, and connect through storytelling, and as you’ll see, Elizabeth is a gifted storyteller.
