“Loving Your Mind”

Presentation Description
Cathy Cheshire explained the importance of understanding how the conscious and subconscious parts of our minds work, especially when grieving. She described how to use mindfulness to change even the most resistant subconscious thought patterns often programmed by family or society. Cathy shared how she went from an unknowing prisoner of her mind to being empowered to make constructive choices based on her own desires. She believes others can do the same once they have the knowledge and tools.

Not only does she have valuable content to share, but she is also a lovely companion to watch the sunset with. 🌞 As presenter and coach, she talks about (self) compassion and how to go from unconstructive to constructive thought during your grief.

Hope Healing & Health CruiseThe Seminars at Sea Program is a new “healing” concept to give those suffering from grief the tools to better cope with their loss, no matter how much time has passed. This very special cruise is a powerful transformational journey at sea honoring and celebrating the lives of our lost loved ones. Many are unprepared for the grieving process that follows a profound loss. Be inspired in a nurturing community of people who are or have been where you are in your grief journey. Guests will have the opportunity to better understand their grief journey, receive compassionate support, and enhance their coping skills. Optional workshops and activities will take place on the days we are out at sea. There will be plenty of time to relax, spend time with others, and explore off-ship excursions. Give yourself and loved ones a gift of understanding or consider sponsoring a family.

Print“Extraordinary Lessons Learned After the Loss of All Children”

Presentation Description
When Cathy Cheshire’s one son died, she knew nothing about grief and did not want to go on until implementing a plan to improve all the areas of her life. She discovered the more she focuses on what she values, the less negative emotions are triggered. She passionately studied the work of traditional and progressive professionals with varied grief expertise. When her other son died, the pain was the same, but she readily embraced her grief. Continuing to cultivate her life, her lessons became extraordinary. In honor of her sons, Cathy left a business career in healthcare and became an author, speaker, and the founder of the Certified Master Grief Coach program.

This workshop is for adults and the objective is to provide hope and inspire attendees to think about how they may thrive after loss. You will learn: 1) How to design and implement a life action plan; 2) How to be resilient by using mindfulness to manage the connection between thought, emotion, and the body 3) How to experience sadness and joy when grieving; 4) How focusing on the present moment sharpens intuition and inspiration to make heartfelt decisions; and 5) How improving the body’s energy flow supports healing. Worksheets provided.
