Loss and Grief - Understanding its Dimensions
February 2, 2015
Hosted by Dayton Ann Williams
We are multifaceted beings with physical, mental and spiritual aspects. Conversely, experiencing loss or grief has a multi-dimensional impact on us. We are affected emotionally, cognitively, physically, socially, and spiritually. Without an understanding of the grief process, we can easily begin to create identification with the grief. Rather than recognizing we are experiencing grief we begin to believe it is who we are. Knowledge is power and as we move forward in our healing journey understanding the grief process and how it impacts us offers tremendous benefits; empowering us to stay the course. It helps us keep our focus on our inward journey rather than on the multifaceted affect that is natural to the grieving process. I look forward to discussing the dimensions of loss and grief and generating an understanding that will assist you as you move forward in your healing journey.

This program answers the questions “How will we respond?” “What do we intend to do now that it happened?” As we focus on our thoughts, feelings, and choices, that which is our responsibility, we create harmony in our inner world. The grief or loss we experienced becomes the catalyst to knowing and being our unique expression of the Divine in this time and space, to understand the true meaning of our presence and connectedness in this world.
My deep desire is to offer a passageway of thoughts and feelings that begin to resonate within you and nurture you as you heal. We will never be the person we were before our loss. Yet, as we embrace the process and honor the changes that will transpire, we will change in ways that we cannot yet imagine. We will re-engage in life from a new perspective. Having experienced contrast, perhaps the deepest pain we have ever known, we will ultimately experience abundance as never before. Although healing is an inward journey, you are not alone.

I spent my life focusing on ‘what I did,’ working hard to grow and expand personally and professionally; to heal. I accomplished much, yet was left with a feeling that it wasn’t quite enough. When I directed my attention to being responsible for my thoughts, feelings and choices, to making happiness my focus, to embracing ‘who I am,’ I experienced the magical melding of my physical, emotional and spiritual nature. I was compelled to go beyond my experiences, beyond my perceptions, beyond my belief systems and discover the magnificence of this time and space, to embrace the beauty within my soul, to walk with others on their journey.
I am a Certified Professional, Spiritual, Relationship and Bereavement Coach, an author, speaker, Level 3 Traditional Reiki Practitioner, and a former Certified Senior Project Manager for IBM. In my journey I overcame alcoholism through developing a spiritual way of life and practice that has spanned over30 years. A commitment to embracing life from the perspective of love supported my own healing after the death of my eldest son, SGT Tyrell Williams, USMC, and a relationship where my partner’s crack and alcohol abuse would fuel domestic violence, financial devastation, and the destruction of a dream two years in the making. From a heart-felt desire to help others, I offer a unique approach to healing and wellness. For the soul that weeps, I offer a light as you awaken to the beautiful and divine being of love that you truly are.
