Heather's calm and compassionate presence are a healing balm in times of great loss. She explains grief so well that you feel as if she walks through the process with you and deeply comprehends the ever changing path of grief. I found her program to be both educational and experiential, an unusual combination in the field of grief. I greatly appreciate her expertise, wisdom, intuition, and compassionate approach.

The program has been my life jacket in a very stormy sea of grief. I am the person who ultimately has to swim and get back to land but having this has given me hope that I will get there, in my own time and with the help of Heather and my companions in the online sessions. - Alexis
I found in Heather´s online course a refuge where I can connect with awareness my ongoing grief process. The lessons allowed me to relate intimately with how my grief appeared in my thoughts, emotions and physical sensations. My relationship to life after this loss has profoundly changed, and I appreciate Heather's support to discover it. - G.S.

Before this course I was having anxiety and depression. The weekly practice was powerful, but integrating my practice into my daily life was especially helpful. I am calmer now. Even when I focus on my grief, it doesn't seem as overwhelming. - C.B.

Frequently Asked Questions About AWAKEN Meditation For Grief Membership
When are the live online sharing groups held?
Every Tuesday at 7 PM EST. You can come every week, or pop in just when you need support.
Do I need to read the Mindfulness & Grief book?
No. You will get the content you need from the program itself. You may wish to read the book for additional information, such as the inspirational stories, and to help reinforce the meditation techniques.
Who is AWAKEN not good for?
This program is designed specifically for grief associated with the death of a loved one. It is not suitable for relationship loss or divorce. If you have a psychiatric diagnosis that includes psychosis such as hallucinations or active flashbacks, meditation may exacerbate your suffering. Please clear this program with your mental health provider before continuing.
Do I need special technology to participate?
Any computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone that has a web browser and access to the internet will work. We recommend that you connect to a reliable wifi network so the video is stable and the audio is clear. Streaming without wifi may result in data charges.

I would say that ‘mindfulness’ is a gift you will unpack the rest of your life. Too often we humans are just reacting to things one after another. If you want to get off the treadmill, then Heather Stang is the ideal person to guide you. Her work is thoughtful, focused and well researched. - YIE YIN FOONG, Family Services Outreach Coordinator, LiveOnNY Organ Donation
