Good Grief Workshop
Co-Creating and Manifesting Our New Hopes
Offered by Denise Yocco
Having a few of these groups now behind me, I am realizing just how important they truly are for those, perhaps you, that are grieving. Most times it is the loss of a loved one who has passed, those who have succumbed to physical illness, or passed suddenly, or those who have taken their own life. But that is not the only grief that people suffer. There are many losses that we suffer, and they become grief, and all forms of grief, can create an endless cycle of feeling we are turning the same page, and forgetting what we have read. So this is a workshop, where some form of focused process is practiced. It is a space for speaking to what you feel. It is a space for deep listening to others.
I use a variety of tools to help those who attend to find where there focus is in the moment, and with this workshop, where we are wanting it to go. What are we hoping will happen next? That is a big question that causes much fear and anxiety for so many. What is the reality of the question, and how possible is it that what you hope for, is something you will have?We will work together with words and objects and meditation to reach a new place, a new page, a new direction, if we wish to allow that for ourselves. Please be aware that the time allotment for this process can change, depending on the number of people who attend, as everyone needs to be heard.
This event has evolved from N.O.A.H. ~ Nectar of Awakened Hearts and I offer it with honor and in loving memory to both Noah and Andi, two dear souls who have gathered the gold in me to help those on this side to find their gold , to offer as well.

I have been reluctant to offer anything about me as a bio. As you may know I am co-owner and co-creator with my husband Nick, of Seven Stones Gallery and Heart Space at Seven Stones.
I offer to this Heart Space community what I love and what loves me back. I am not educated by any university, or particular school of thought, only by what I have sought to learn and what life has offered to me in abundance to learn from. I feel deeply and passionately about self knowing and wholeness. I feel certain we can self heal through self knowing, self loving and forgiveness. I have taken The Peace Ambassador Training with James O’Dea, and heart honored to be part of the 2nd graduating class. I have taken classes in Non-Violent Communication and in Conflict Resolution, also have taken classes with Andrew Harvey, a modern day mystic, as I have leaned more into the great ancient mystics, such as Rumi, Hafiz, Nanak, Kabir, and Sanai,, and those modern, as well.
I have allowed myself to unravel and undo a few times. Also, allowed myself to unlearn so that I can be learning in every moment. It is hard to keep learning when we feel we have learned, or we believe we know. Everything remains in motion and is open to change. The space for learning and unlearning needs to be open…always. I am human and many times have missed the mark that each of these studies has offered to me. But I stay on course and continue to evolve. I possess no special skills to heal another, only the heart that keeps offering to others a way through, as I have found, and what I know works to heal. It will always come down to the work we do to help ourselves, no matter who we learn from, no matter who lays their hands upon us, no matter our teachers or guru, religion, or degree, it will always be our decision to heal ourselves. Our greatest service to each other is to do that work, and offer, from the heart, what we are learning through life, to be bridges, to be friends. I simply and passionately offer that. Deeply thankful and blessed to be of service.
