Yoga: A Treatment For Grief?

Do any of you use yoga or mindfulness to manage either your own grief or - if you are a teacher - your student's grief?
The practice may help people heal from the inside and out when coping with loss. ;

Once you are aware you shouldn't be in denial, but still go back to Do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti DO. WE need to go back to the waters.

As the +Frederick Meditation Center Intro to Mindfulness class comes to a close tomorrow, +Sharon Salzberg 's words ring true. It has been a gift being a part of such a wonderful group.
 
The One That Lasts A Lifetime By Sharon Salzberg

I find these moments, when we’ve come to the end if a commitment or endeavor, very interesting. It is its own kind of challenge. Sometimes, in ending an intensive meditation retreat as we say goodbye to participants, we welcome them to the other intensive practice period, the one they are emerging into. The one that lasts a lifetime. We can view our whole life as a creative medium, our chance to live fully and brightly, instead of mechanically and bound to habit....http://goo.gl/tXKGz8

Happy New Moment: Mindfulness & New Year's Day

New Year’s Day is a chance to begin again. But what we so often forget in our hectic lives is that every moment, every second, is a chance to begin again.

I Was Mindful When Mindfulness Wasn't Cool

How do you make a living in the mindfulness sphere without turning it into a commodity? This reflection on spiritual materialism is a reminder for myself to live the practice rather than try to own it.
“Mindfulness is the new black” hasn’t quite made it onto T-shirts yet - that I know of - but the slogan is being kicked around all over the blogosphere.
