At Lighting The Way, our mission is to help people learn healthy ways to process their grief. Grief is an inevitable part of life that comes in many forms, and we understand it can be difficult to navigate loss and learn how to process the emotions that accompany it. This is why we practice the Grief Recovery Method and are committed to providing all of the tools and resources you need to become a stronger version of yourself.
About The Grief Recovery Institute®
The Grief Recovery Institute was founded in the mid 1980s when a gentleman by the name of John James developed The Grief Recovery Method. He had just suffered a significant loss in his life, and when looking for ways to recover, there wasn’t anything that helped him. This prompted his creation of The Grief Recovery Method, which has since certified Grief Recovery Specialists across the United States and the world.
The Grief Recovery Method
The Grief Recovery Method is the only evidence-based grief recovery program in existence. Since its founding over 30 years ago, the Grief Recovery Method has had one goal in mind: to help people better understand their emotional pain and learn to overcome their grief.
Lighting The Way offers a seven week program that is an action-based process that allows you to take a look at old beliefs about dealing with loss and which losses have affected your life. It also allows you to take actions that will lead you to complete unresolved emotions that may still be causing you pain. Each week includes reading and writing assignments. The groups are seven weeks and are not suitable for drop-ins. Individual sessions are also available.
