What you'll learn in this spirituality class:

Many people do not want to think about dealing with grief until someone close to them passes. However, most everyone knows someone who has passed and may find it difficult to know what to say to bring comfort to a person. One of the most important life skills you can have is to know how to relate to someone who is going through grief, whether it be a friend or family member. Be equipped to offer condolences that are helpful to yourself or others by understanding the sixth stage of grief—meaning.

Join Kessler to become informed about his groundbreaking new work from the recent release, Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief Kessler—an expert on grief has expanded the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage: meaning. In 1969, Elisabeth Kübler Ross first identified the stages of dying in her transformative book On Death and Dying. Decades later, she and Kessler wrote the classic On Grief and Grieving, introducing the stages of grief with the same transformative pragmatism and compassion. Now, based on hard-earned personal experiences, as well as knowledge and wisdom through decades of work with the grieving, Kessler introduces a critical sixth stage—meaning.

Become informed about the insights, collective wisdom, and powerful tools to help those experiencing loss. Finding Meaning is a critical component of the grief process.

His insight is both professional and intensely personal: his journey with grief began when, as a child, he witnessed a mass shooting at the same time his mother was dying. For most of his life, Kessler has taught physicians, nurses, counselors, police, and first responders about end of life, trauma, and grief, as well as leading talks and retreats for those experiencing grief. Despite all his knowledge, his life was upended by the sudden death of his 21-year-old son.

Find out how Kessler, the world’s leading authority on grief, handled his own tragic, unexpected, and devastating loss. He knew he had to find a way through his pain that would honor his son. This is perhaps the most common desire people have and is exceptionally useful in dealing with grief.

Find a sense of completion or inner peace by recognizing the importance of the meaning of grief for anyone looking to journey away from suffering for yourself or others.
