Love After Death - Exploring Grief

Love After Death - Exploring Grief

With Unmani  •  May 4–18, 2018

A 3-part Webinar Series

On 3rd January 2018 my husband, best friend and love, Robert Hanuman, died suddenly from a heart attack. Since then I have been riding the wild waves of grief that continue to turn me inside out. In our Western society we are not used to really giving space to grief and it’s transformative process. We tend to hide it away, to keep it small and contained, and to try to ‘get on with normal life’ too soon. Grief is such a natural part of life. As soon as you fall in love, you know you will have to say goodbye in some way, at some point. As soon as you open your heart to love, it is always opening it also to heartbreak. It is about facing the reality of losing everyone that you love, and eventually also facing the reality of losing your own self. Riding the waves of disbelief, shock, vulnerability, fear, anger, and immense sadness, can leave you very confused and lost.

In this webinar, I invite us all to share and explore this paradoxical wild journey of grieving. Grief is such a major part of waking up to the Truth because it cracks us open and open to Love. And this Love is not a dreamy kind of Love. Grief takes you out of the clouds of dreams and spiritual concepts, and plants your feet rmly on the ground. It can be such a painful slap in the face, and it can be such a gift of Love.

Part 2: The Paradox of Being Fully Human, and The Absolute

May 12, 2018

It is such a paradox that we are both fully embodied as this human form, and also the Awareness of it all. Usually thought wants to land on one side or the other of this paradox and form a conclusion about 'myself' as this or that. But the truth is that you are both simultaneously. This is not just a mental belief, but a very much lived experience and Knowing. Knowing yourself to be that Awareness or Absolute, actually gives the freedom to dive fully into the human play of life without holding back. There is nothing to lose when you know that it is all a play of experience in your Absolute true nature. In the grieving process this paradox becomes very apparent because on one hand there is the very real grieving of the loss of a loved one, and on the other hand a real sense that they haven't gone anywhere. There is a fully experiencing whatever wave of sensation, emotion or thoughts that might be here, knowing that it is all coming and going in that same Knowing. Surrendering to whatever life brings, even if you don't understand it or it hurts, knowing that it is all held in the Love that you are.

Part 3: A Time of Great Transformation

May 19, 2018 10:00am - 11:30am

Grief can be a great gift if you can give yourself enough space to receive it. When we let go of our ideas about how it should be, or who you should be, then it is possible to let life reveal it's mysteries. Grief can open you to Love. In fact grief really is Love. It is Love stripped naked. It is Love without the external person to direct this Love towards. And without someone to direct it towards, it can only be yours. It is the great power of Love that overflows in tears or joy. It is the Love that is your true nature. It is the Love that cracks open your heart again and again with each wave. And as you open more and more to Love, you lose more and more of who you thought you were and the ideas you had about how life should be. It is a time of great transformation as you lose all meaning and hope, and wake up to the only real reason we are here - to live as Love.
