Psychotherapy Strategies for Grieving & Living Fully


There is a vitality, a life force, an energy that is translated through you into action,
And because there is only one of you in all of time, that expression is unique—
It is your business to keep it yours completely and to keep the channel open.
—Agnes de Milne

Awakening to Life in Transition

A retreat with Ralph Steele and Alexandra Kennedy
October 27 - 29 2017
Santa Cruz, CA

In the natural flow of life we will pass through many transitions—involving changes in our family, work, living situation, community, health and sense of identity. These transitions often bring us face to face with the harsh reality of loss and grief, of how vulnerable we really are, of living in an aging body-- and of our inescapable appointment with death. We can resist these transitions or we can learn to flow with them. Working with them, we can learn how to open up a space for the universal to inspire and transform our daily lives.

For all of us going through transition in our lives, this retreat is an opportunity and an invitation to awaken to life more fully in this moment, to trust life flowing through us with all its challenges and gifts. Instead of reacting to these changes with anxiety and fear, we can discover at our source a deep sense of peace and well-being.

Waking Up in Paradise: Women's Big Island Retreat
March 6-14 2017

This 8-day retreat offers an opportunity to live from your spiritual center in a community of loving, conscious women on sacred Hawaiian land. As we fall back into natural rhythms, we will shed the stresses of everyday life, relax into the welcoming silence that awaits us, cultivate true rest, and allow life in all its richness to flow unimpeded through us. We can then discover that each one of us is a flowing expression of a divine love and intelligence that hums through our very cells.

Our retreat site of Hawaiian design sits on the hillside above Kealakekua Bay with stunning views of the bay and coastline. The property exudes tranquility, peace and beauty.

This sacred land, warm ocean, and loving community of women create a safe and supportive womb for the unfolding of truth within each of us. We will be nurtured and challenged to dive deeply into ourselves and uncover fresh inspiration for our lives.

Grief Workshop

Over a lifetime we will experience many losses—not just the loss of loved ones but the loss of a marriage, health, job, finances, dreams, a pet, or a child when he or she goes off to college. Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. Grief is a natural response to loss. However, ungrieved loss takes a toll on our hearts and deadens us to life. We must learn to actively grieve but how can we do this in the midst of our daily lives? How can we support others who are grieving?

Working as a licensed therapist for over 35 years, Alexandra Kennedy provides a unique perspective to loss and grieving. Weaving together inspiring case histories, professional and practical advice, and experiential exercises, Alexandra "empowers her clients to connect with a flow of healing and transformation from within themselves and learn new tools for living more fully".

In addition to lecturing at universities, professional organizations, and major conferences, Alexandra has authored successful books including Losing a Parent, The Infinite Thread: Healing Relationships Beyond Loss, and How Did I Miss All This Before? Waking Up to the Magic of Our Ordinary Lives. You will also find numerous articles, interviews, and workshops by her.
