FAQs About Grief

How does unresolved grief harm you?

Grief that we've buried impedes our ability to feel the broad range of human emotions.

Other problems include:

  • difficulty concentrating
  • challenges with connecting with others
  • depression
  • problems caused by coping mechanisms

Will my heart always be broken?

It doesn't have to be.

People often continue to experience profound grief months, years, and even decades after significant losses in their lives.

But, we've also found that those who trust the Grief Recovery Process find profound relief, joy, and purpose in their lives once they complete the work.

Will I forget about my loved one if I complete the grief around when they died?

That's such an important question. The answer is a resounding NO!

We don't forget them when we complete the grief about them no longer being in our lives.

Instead, the pain and heat around that loss ends, and we are left with a fuller understanding and appreciation for that person.

Is grief only from death?

Perhaps the most intense feelings of grief come from death. But other extremely common courses are:

  • divorce
  • loss of health
  • life transitions
  • even happy things like births and retirements

Grief is about a broken heart, not a broken brain.

All efforts to heal the heart with the head fail because the head is the wrong tool for the job. It’s like trying to paint with a hammer—it only makes a mess.

― John W. James, The Grief Recovery Handbook

We first encountered the Grief Recovery Method during the difficult time of our 19-year-old nephew's passing after his courageous battle with leukemia.

Since discovering this method, we've seen many lives and relationships undergo profound transformations, with a renewed sense of vitality.
