Grief is not a disorder, a disease, or sign or weakness…… The only cure for grief is to grieve
~ Rabbi Earl Grollman, Counselor
When you grieve, it like taking steps that you repeat over and over. One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself the gift of time to grief and to be gentle with yourself. When you are grieving, you may need to organize your days in a new way. You may need to find a new way to complete everyday task.
As you grieve the lost of a person in your life, you may want to find ways to celebrate or honor their life. You way discover a way to carry on their legacy.
Awaken Wellness Cirlce believes there is a connection between faith, health and wellness. There is a Spirit within and around us. A Spirit in which we live and move and have our being. This Spirit guides us toward greater wholeness in our daily lives. When we quiet our minds and pause long enough to listen to the Spirit, it will serve as a guide.

We Remember Them
In the rising of the sun and its going down, we remember them.
In the blowing to the wind and the chill of winter, we remember them.
In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember them.
In the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember them.
In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn, we remember them.
In the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember them.
When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember them.
When we are lost and sick of heart, we remember them.
When we have joys and special celebrations we year to share, we remember them.
So as long as we live, they too shall live, for they are part of us.
We remember them.
~ Rabbis Sylvan Kamens and Jack Riemer
