The pain of losing someone you love is overwhelming.
The challenge is to keep the pain from crushing you.
I’m Raneesha, a Mind-Body Educator, Mindfulness Teacher, Somatic Practitioner, and Wellbeing Coach. I developed this course having seen the impact of grief and loss on people I work with professionally and having grown from grief and loss in own my personal life. Loss can go one of two ways – it can bury us down under, or it can power us towards growth. We can collapse or we can develop muscles we never knew we had. The key component is our willingness to relate to our experience. It can feel difficult, but in a collective atmosphere it becomes a shared experience and not something we have to hold ourselves.
Through this 4-week course, you will build a deeper understanding of your experience, a way to navigate thoughts and feelings, practices to bring clarity into the turmoil, and share space with others with similar experiences. You will build manageable navigation plans that will support you as you move through this fertile time. We will also talk about inspirational stories 🙂
One of the primary things that come with grief and loss is internal chaos. The chaos of confusion behind “what happened” and the chaos within difficult thoughts and emotions. This can lead to an internal collapse, or it can go the other way and lead to overworking – both being natural things the body does in order to help you cope. This course will help you bring some order through several means: education, sharing, stories, supportive atmosphere.
Whether you have lost a relationship through bereavement, separation, desertion or breakup, you may find useful things within this course. This is a resource-building course. It has been intentionally planned for before Christmas, as going into Christmas period with grief can be particularly difficult.
If this course would be beneficial to you or someone you are caring for, then do join us 🙂 I hope you see you there.

Note: This course is a resource-building course for you, and so it will not focus on processing the source of grief i.e. berevement or separation. We may discuss this informally and share resources, but the intention of this course is really to help you gain strength so you can process things from a healthier place.
Here are the precautions that will be taken throughout the duration of this course:
- Sanitizers will be available at the entrance of the Coppice Wellbeing Centre for your use.
- I will ensure I am sat at a safe distance away
- Any shared resources (such as pens) will be sanitised for your use
- I will carry out a lateral flow test on myself before each session
