Finding Your Way: A Heart-Centered Approach to Finding Hope and Healing After Loss
Starting Nov 8th at 8:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM PT
If you have been struggling with your grief and feel hopeless and alone, the "Finding Your Way"
program may be just what you need. "Finding Your Way: A Heart-Centered Approach to Finding Hope
and Healing After Loss" is a new support program from Grief Refuge, starting Nov 8th at 8:00 PM ET /
5:00 PM PT, for anyone dealing with grief from a death-related loss. Finding Your Way was created to
help people who are lonely, lost, angry, or afraid and can help be a guide on the journey. Grief Refuge
is putting together a community where everyone can grieve authentically and feel some healing.
Navigating the uncharted emotional terrain of your grief can be overwhelming, especially when your
friends and family cannot provide the support you need. Still, you shouldn't have to suffer or struggle
alone. The rich educational content of the Finding Your Way program is carefully curated from credible
sources to offer you the best of the best in terms of a whole-person, heart-centered approach to
navigating grief and loss. This heart-centered approach involves embracing, experiencing, and expressing
the feelings of grief in a way that fully addresses all aspects of your well-being— physically,
emotionally, cognitively, spiritually, and socially. Built upon the work of Dr. Alan Wolfelt, each weekly
module in the program expands upon crucial takeaways from his book, Understanding Your Grief:
Ten Essential Touchstones for Finding Hope and Healing in Your Heart.

Survivors of Murder-Suicide Loss Share How You Can Help Support
Check out the terrific new post on Brittany Noble McCarthy's blog,
"Survivors of Murder-Suicide Loss Share How You Can Help Support," at
Brittany Noble McCarthy is a writer and advocate for two largely misunderstood areas: the life of military
families and survivors of murder-suicide loss. In addition to pieces published with the Tragedy Assistance
Program for Survivors (TAPS) and The Kentucky Derby Museum. Brittany is the co-founder of a
murder-suicide loss support group, along with fellow survivor My Grief Connection founder Sara J. Cobb,
and has connected with survivors across the country. She holds a Master’s Degree in Public Communication,
and is a certified Peer Mentor with TAPS. Brittany has participated in numerous grief and suicide
workshops with TAPS and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. She has also connected
with leading researchers in the field of suicidology and community violence.
This new post was co-written by several murder-suicide loss survivors, including Brittany & Sara,
with the intent of helping educate those in survivors’ support systems. In it, they share what would
have been most helpful – and what was not helpful – after their initial loss. They have joined in a
single voice that they hope reflects anyone who has experienced the tragic loss of a loved one to
murder-suicide or any sensationalized, traumatic loss. They cannot and do not speak for all survivors,
but if you are a survivor of murder-suicide loss, they hope you know you are not alone.
If you are a survivor of murder-suicide loss and are interested in connecting with other survivors for
support and/or direction to resources, please reach out to either Brittany or Sara via email for
information about their Survivors of Murder-Suicide Loss Virtual Support Group. This private support
group meets twice monthly via Zoom to share our stories, encourage and support one another.
