Session 1 “This is Your Brain on Grief”

Have you ever wondered what’s happening in your brain when you grieve?

Have you ever considered the brain’s role in healthy transition following loss?

What should we know about the brain under stress?

Is “brain fog” a real thing?

Rick Bergh will tap into the amazing world of neuroscience, drawing upon the research he’s been involved with at the University of Victoria.  He’ll share some practical and helpful information about the role of the brain during grief.

You will learn what’s happening in the brain and why healthy brain stimulation is important for healthy mourning.


Session 2 “Making Meaning of Life’s Losses”

Our losses don’t always make sense.

We struggle with understanding and the “why” of loss.

Is there a different perspective we can have on our grief?

Does grief have an important role in forming the next chapter of our lives?

Rick Bergh has been privileged to come alongside hundreds of people in his grief counselling practice.  His clients have taught him that making meaning offers a way forward and still honours the person who has died.

In this session, you’ll learn about the concept of meaning-making and a means of viewing grief through a different lens.
