Going through each phase in the workbook and reading chapters opens your mind to express your feelings and emotions. This program is essential to everyone who has experienced loss/grief. The breakdown of what each individual considers a loss and how you dealt with it then and how you deal with it now. The release is uplifting and sad at the same time. It works the entire body and soul of a person. It makes you understand and allows you to show your emotions whether it be crying or just talking about it. This group was very beneficial to me personally. Niawenkowa.
