The Compassionate Friends



“Extraordinary Lessons Learned After the Loss of All Children”

2018 National Conference, St Louis, Missouri

Workshop Description
In 2007, Cathy Cheshire’s only child died at age 16 in a car accident. Ten years later, after a long illness, her stepson died at age 29 from a blood clot. After the first loss, Cathy knew nothing about grief and didn’t 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. As she studied the work of traditional and progressive professionals with varied grief expertise, she finally understood how her thoughts and emotions function.

When her stepson died, the pain was the same, but she readily embraced her grief. As she continued cultivating her life, her lessons became extraordinary and allow her to be happy for others because now she cherishes her own life. Prepared to handle inevitable loss and difficulties, she now looks for the lessons rather than unyielding suffering. Cathy’s evolution was so profound, she left a business career in healthcare to support other grievers. In honor of her sons, she became an author, speaker, and the founder of the “Master Grief Coach” training program with a certification option.

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.

She explains how she became emotionally healthy and what led her to embrace life’s mysteries. The resources she used to foster good habits and overcome negative thoughts will be discussed.
