-It moves at times; in stages and cycles.

Each instant a moment which often is etched into our brains.

Sometimes even keeping us stuck to our past reminiscences and even rumination.

This then becoming a roller coaster of feedback loops; and much to our dismay, throughout this thing we call life - At some point, we will all experience the cycles of grief.

Whether illness, disaster, or death of a loved one, most of us go through at least one traumatic event in our lifetimes. Events that cause us despair and a deep, often lingering sense of loss:

And perhaps with to a lesser frequency- Grief surfaces in such situations as the loss of a job, a career, of in our sense of innocence- as one experiences trauma; or even in losing some sense of our personal identity.

Today we courageously look grief in the face, so that we might examine some of the various ways in which it surfaces throughout our lives.

Sandy Woznicki

Stress and Anxiety Coach

Sandy coaches women with high-functioning anxiety to become calm and confident and able to handle anything life throws at them with Graceful Resilience.

Having been fed up of a lifetime of anxiety, Sandy found resilience training work several years ago after trying different forms of therapy, medication (and self medication) without getting the results she wanted. Combining the work with mindfulness and meditation changed her life completely from a state of anxiety, ADHD, self bullying and panic attacks to happy, calm and excitement about life, and a newfound ability to quickly bounce back when life gets challenging.

Trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness and meditation, and as a certified health and life coach and yoga teacher, she's spent the last several years coaching women and teaching workshops both live and online.
