Washington D.c., Maryland (PressExposure) June 06, 2015 -- Statistics show that it can take five to eight years to recover from a devastating loss, such as loss of a loved one. Dora Carpenter, certified professional coach, says that it doesn't have to take that long.
Dora Carpenter introduces a new element to her current grief coaching practice. No matter what the cause of grief, the emotions of loss are natural and normal. It is necessary to release the heavy energy of these emotions as one navigates this wilderness of grief. Specializing in helping individuals transition from grief to gratitude is the cornerstone of her work.
"After working many years in the death care industry and seeing countless unfulfilled hopes and dreams buried in the cemetery, I want to help people live and appreciate the now. When we do so, we lesson our loved ones' painful emotions of loss, such as guilt and regret." Dora says.
Experiencing personal losses herself, Dora Carpenter found meditation to be an effective coping tool, especially during those times of unexplainable and unpredictable grief bursts. She is excited to partner with Rev. Anthony Farmer, a teacher, visionary and published author. An ordained Interfaith Minister, Rev. Farmer is the presiding minister and visionary of Visions of the Heart Spiritual Life Center, an interfaith spiritual community in Takoma Park, Maryland.
An introduction to "Meditation: A Gift of Comfort for the Heart" will be presented by Rev. Farmer to the Washington, D.C. area community on Saturday, June 13, 2015. Attendees will learn how meditation is a tool to comfort the heart through grief; how meditation eases and helps release the heaviness; and how to find the best meditation technique for you.

Dealing with life transitions, grief, and fear requires more than strength and endurance. Dora Carpenter's empathetic guidance, encouragement, and non-judgmental support inspires individuals to move through their grief while discovering meaning and purpose in their 'new' life going forward. Her mantra: "Everything in life is temporary, including life itself. Decide to say Yes! to the gift of now."
