Loss and Grief - How to Move Forward
February 16, 2015
Hosted by Dayton Ann Williams
Brokenhearted; the kind that leaves us without hope and so completely, utterly fragmented that we truly feel we cannot be repaired. We have felt it before in our lives. Although this time we believe that we have never experienced this depth of despair, this degree of pain. This is the one that takes us to our knees; the one that releases a wail so forceful that the windows shake in response. We may shed a river of tears or become suspended in time to the point we are detached from both our internal and external environment. This is grief. We experienced a loss and our world collapsed. We look around at the ruins of the cataclysmic event and we feel the desolation. Yet, no one else sees what we see and we realize it is all coming from within us. Everyone continues on with their life and the world around us seems oblivious to the event that altered our existence. But, what about us; how do we continue on? We will explore how to move forward and heal.
A Light for the Soul That Weeps

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.
