Are you feeling anxious? Afraid? Like no one understands what you are going through? If so you are in the right place. Here we will cherish your stories, and help you learn how to calm anxiety and take care of yourself as you navigate life after loss.

all-inclusive grief support program

A different kind of online grief support program

Awaken has different ways to help you heal—like meditation, moving your body, journaling, and even some expressive arts. You get to pick what feels right for you. That means you're not just following a one-size-fits-all plan; you're crafting your own healing journey.

So in the end, you're not just getting through each painful day—you're building a life that has room for love and resilience. And you're doing it in a way that honors both you and the person you've lost.

Grief Groups with Heather 

Find your emotional footing in a space that's all about you and your unique grieving process. With Heather's expertise in meditation and journaling to guide the way, you'll gain actionable strategies for resilience and well-being. In addition to weekly grief groups, Awaken offers anticipatory grief groups for caregivers twice a month.
Offered Mondays at 2 PM ET and Tuesdays at 7 PM ET.

Grief Yoga with Angelique 

You don't need to be a fitness guru or a yogi to benefit from this experience. Angelique's weekly yoga sessions are designed to help you metabolize your emotions, offering you a physical outlet to release grief's emotional weight and find a more balanced state of being.
Offered Thursdays at 2 PM ET.

Holistic Grief Course

The Mindfulness & Grief Course guides you on a clear path with guided meditations, journaling prompts, and insightful videos, all while leaving room for your unique experiences and needs. Plus you get access to the Awaken Roadmaps, which are short mini-courses to help you navigate grief's most common challenges (like anniversaries and insomnia) with worksheets and other practices.
Available 24/7.

Awaken Community Forum

Feel seen and understood in the Awaken Community, a sanctuary designed for those who crave real connections and expert guidance on their journey through grief. Connect with like-minded individuals who "get it," request a specialized grief buddy, and track your progress through our life-changing modules. This is where genuine connection meets expert counsel, minus the noise of traditional social media.

Available 24/7

You don't have to grieve alone

Imagine a life where grief doesn't feel as overwhelming, where you have a trusted companion and community guiding you back to peace, calm, and hope. This isn't just a dream; it's what our members experience.

I love the weekly groups, meditations, community , grief yoga and journaling. I’ve learned so much from Heather and the group support is amazing. It helps you gain a perspective from others experiences. I have also learned to face grief as I progressed instead of stuff it. I would say the support is invaluable and never any judgement, I’ve felt accepted from the very first call.

I don't know how well I would have managed this ongoing grief terrain without Awaken and Heather. I love grief yoga, it really helps move the energy & emotions, and help me be more present in my being, to help process emotions & be more *here*. I have met just some of the best, kindest, truly wonderful people through being in the Awaken community. I am very grateful, and all the better for it.

AG // Awaken Member

Awaken is the best thing I have done to help me get through losing my mom. Awaken has given me language for grief, an invaluable sense that what I'm going through, although terribly terribly hard, is normal. The meetings are the most important things on my calendar each week and when I need support outside of meeting times, the website is full of resources I can access day or night. With Awaken, I don't feel alone in my grief.
