Terri Daniel, MA, CT is a clinical chaplain, ordained interfaith minister and end-of-life educator certified in death, dying and bereavement by the Association of Death Education and Counseling. The focus of her work is to assist dying and grieving individuals to discover a more spiritually-spacious understanding of death and beyond.
Terri conducts workshops throughout the U.S. to help the dying and the bereaved find healing through meditative, ritual and therapeutic processes that focus on inner transformation rather than external events. Her work is acclaimed by physicians, hospice workers, grief counselors, clergy and the bereaved for its pinpoint clarity on the process of dying and grieving, and its heartfelt depiction of consciousness beyond the physical body.
Terri's interest in the journey of the soul through birth and death began at age 12, when she began experiencing non-ordinary realities that sparked a lifelong interest in following a spiritual path But it wasn't until the death of her 16 year-old son in 2006 that she immersed herself in studying multi-cultural religious traditions and metaphysical practices that help the dying and the grieving to view their experiences through a mystical lens. Her unique form of "radical mysticism" incorporates elements of Buddhism, Shamanism, ancient pagan practices, Gnosticism and other spiritual traditions to break down limiting beliefs about forgiveness, divine judgment and negative experience. Terri replaces these beliefs with an empowering vision of a co-created universe where there are no victims or perpetrators, only souls seeking expansion and awareness.
Terri is the author of three books on death and the afterlife:
She is also the founder and president of the Afterlife Education Foundation and producer of the annual Afterlife Awareness Conference.
If you are mourning the death of a loved one or a loss of any kind (including divorce, job loss, pet loss or any major transformational shift), please join us in a rare learning environment that provides effective healing tools not found in traditional counseling or support group settings.
The Grief as a Mystical Journey workshop is designed to lead participants to deeper healing by moving toward internal transformation as opposed to focusing on external events. We do this through guided meditation, art therapy, and gentle body work, along with ritual and ceremony, which gives form to the formless and converts unseen healing energies into practical tools.
A Series of Unique Experiential Workshops
"Grief shakes us loose from our spiritual lethargy, and creates a wound that is far more than a wound. It is an opening to higher awareness that can lead to greater peace in life, and also in death."
In the full-day workshop, you will learn to:
. Accept and embrace impermanence
. Work with the natural ebb and flow of human experience
. Find gratitude and grace in life again
. Understand loss, pain, contraction and expansion
. Develop tools for re-opening a wounded heart
. Create healing rituals to honor the grief journey
. Move from the contracted energy of grief to spiritual spaciousness
This extraordinary event will help you transmute trauma and grief into new forms of love, acceptance and spiritual awareness. Through guided visualizations, story sharing and sacred ceremony, you will learn to embrace a sacred perspective in which grief can be viewed as a gift of growth rather than a meaningless tragedy.
"Pain that is not transformed will be transmitted."
