Grief and Gratitude Workshop: Words from previous attendees.


“What is so wonderful about your group, especially the Grief & Gratitude workshops, is that it has helped to set a fair, kind, and grateful tone to my divorce process.” –Kathleen S.

“It really is amazing, the power of women. We all truly have an unspoken harmonious connection–not just in our circumstances of divorce and broken hearts but as mothers, friends, artists, educators, meditators and, well, people with soul and conviction who simply want to breathe again.  Jenny, thank you for facilitating such a peaceful and uniquely genuine event.  We couldn’t have met in a more conductive and safe environment for healing.”
Jennifer S. Interior designer

An empowering experience that gave me hope that light was just beyond the stormy horizon.”
Sue K,  Screenwriter

“Even though I have been separated for more than four years, the grief over losing my marriage persists. This workshop helped ease that grief by giving me a safe space to express it and then to turn that grief into gratitude by focusing on new opportunities that await. “
Annette P, Non-profit executive

“At the beginning of the afternoon I had only a distant relationship to the words Grief and Gratitude. The mourning and surrender exercise put me in immediate touch with my own deep sorrow and loss. It is a comfort to know that I’m not alone with these feelings. I was so moved by everyone’s generosity and willingness to share their own difficult experiences.”
Judith L, Artist

“My workshop with Jenny Douglas uplifted my soul and validated the angst I’ve been through. It helped me to embrace the whole-hearted, authentic journey I am now on.”
Nancy M, Artist

“One of the exercises that Jenny Douglas had us engage in I continue to use to this day. It helps me unlock the ‘smarter’ thoughts that I know are in me, but sometimes get locked away by other emotions.”
–Jessica F.

“I only spent three hours in Jenny Douglas’s workshop but I walked away having made deep connections with Jenny and the other women in the workshop.  Jenny created a safe and healing space  in the workshop for each of us to share our feelings. Jenny’s compassion and deep listening was a gift. I continue to reach out to Jenny when I need to reconnect and be reminded that I am not alone in this part of my life’s journey.”
–Trisha C, writer, artist and National Storyteller 

“Jenny’s workshop marked a very important day for me. I feel incredibly grateful that she gave me this opportunity. I have no words to describe the intensity of the peace and hope I felt when I left her home. It will take me a while to let everything sink in. She has a special gift for doing this. Thank you.”
–Violette M., non-profit executive
