How would you feel about having a reliable tool to help you through your grieving process?

Do any of these scenarios describe you?

Scenario #1

  • You just want the pain to end, but you don’t really believe it ever will.
  • You yearn to have your old life back, but know that’s not possible.
  • You’re still riding the roller coaster of early grief.
  • You  feel so disoriented you don’t even feel like yourself anymore.
  • Your grief is so all consuming, you can’t imagine it ever getting better.

Scenario #2

  • You can’t seem to get past the anger, regret and guilt.
  • You may have reached the point where you don’t think about them every minute of every day but that makes you fear you’re forgetting them.
  • You still have unfinished business with your loved one, your family members, or maybe the doctors.
  • And it still feels like it will never end.

Scenario #3

  • You have been through the acute grief of the first year+, and are thinking about your life going forward but not at all sure what that will look like.
  • You actually doing ok but just ok. Life just isn’t particularly interesting.
  • You struggle with questions of meaning. How do you find meaning and purpose out of this enormous life changing experience?
  • You have been profoundly changed by this experience and you’re not even sure who you are anymore.
  • You’re doing ok but you don’t even know what you’d like your life to look like going forward.
  • You feel like you are living in limbo waiting for something to happen but you don’t think it will. 
  • So you’ve decided this is probably as good as it’s going to get.

What they all have in common is you’d like to be anywhere but here, and you have no idea what to do about it.

Maybe you’ve tried counseling or attending a support group, but neither seemed to help. 

Maybe you’re a private griever who would never consider baring your heart and soul to a stranger, never mind a group of strangers, so you suffer alone. 

Know what else these scenarios have in common? 


No matter where you are in the grieving process, writing can help you move through your current challenge.

With grief, there will probably be another challenge right after that (at least for awhile), and writing will help with that one too.

Not only will writing help with what you are experiencing right now, but once you’ve learned the skill of writing for yourself, you will use it for years to come. It really is that powerful.

Susan Fuller owner of Grief Heals.

My name is Susan Fuller, Educator and Coach at Grief Heals. After 30 years of working with grief, creativity and personal transformation, I know how hard it is to grieve the death of someone you love.

I know because my clients have taught me more about grief than I ever wanted to know, and more than I could ever have learned from my own personal experiences, though I’ve had my share.

I am so grateful to all of them including the client who suggested I incorporate more creativity into my work with the grieving.

Well here I am.

I have been writing ever since I first discovered The Artist’s Way and began teaching Artist’s Way groups. Writing has become my go-to for when I am feeling confused, challenged, frustrated, stuck and happy. I have stacks of notebooks going back to the early 90’s.

Several years ago I began introducing writing to my grieving clients…stream of consciousness writing, letter writing and making lists.

Those who followed through didn’t just find it useful. Some were downright giddy about what they were identifying and releasing through the process of writing.

I want you to experience what writing can offer especially if you’re isolated from healthy support or you’re just a private griever who doesn’t feel comfortable sharing your pain.

So here’s what you can expect to gain…

In the first 1-3 months…

  • You will be able to set aside all of those images, thoughts and feelings that are waking you up in the middle of the night.
  • You will begin to find some peace from the yearning.
  • You will rediscover stories about your loved one who died.
  • For all of those things that have no words, the words will begin to find you so you can begin to make sense out of what you’re going through.

In the first year…

  • You will be able to give a voice to feelings of anger, fear and regrets, and resolve whatever unfinished business is haunting you.
  • You will begin to tentatively consider the future without your loved one.
  • You will sort through the pieces of your life, and begin to figure out how the pieces will fit together.
  • You will begin to explore the meaning of the relationship you had with the person who died and the grief that followed.

Beyond the first year…

  • You will be able to explore what it all means and how this death fits into the entirety of your life.
  • You will be able to decide what matters to you going forward and who you want to be.
  • You will begin to plan a happy, meaningful and purposeful life.
  • You will discover ways of integrating the memories of your loved one into your life moving forward without being consumed by loss.

Here’s what others have experienced with writing and grief…

Thanks Susan. Including your videos on your other channel, I found you have the best "real" perspective..... no tricks or cheats that allow me to continue to push the grief away, like many "experts" on youtube offer as a solution. I can only submit and be gentle with myself (I hope I remember this tomorrow when I wake up early with my mind racing). I find those cheats make me feel worse and broken when they don't work.

One client wrote for 6 weeks before writing a love letter to her partner. The love letter was a keeper but those 6 weeks of blather (later shredded) is what got her there.

Another client wrote and wrote about her anger at her siblings until she was giddy with relief. The writing had freed her from carrying all that stuff that went all the way back to childhood.

Another wrote a list of her regrets and read them to her husband’s ashes before burning them into oblivion.

Here’s what Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, a leading researcher on trauma, has to say about writing

When you write to yourself, you don’t have to worry about other people’s judgment—you just listen to your own thoughts and let their flow take over. Later, when you reread what you wrote, you often find surprising truths.

I want you to feel good about what you pay me. And for my business to be sustainable, I need to feel good about it too. So this workshop is offered based on a Set Your Own Price model.

The recommended price is $50

The lowest sustainable price for me is $25

The highest suggested price is $75

Here’s how it works: Check in with your intuition, your gut, or your heart, as well as your bank account, to find the resonant price for you between $25-$75, and that’s the price you pay.

If paying the minimum sustainable price will leave you destitute, without food, shelter, or medical care, please reach out. I will do what I can to accommodate you.
