The Medicine of Mourning
…an extensive online course
for learning to facilitate
trauma-sensitive spaces for grief and mourning
All of this is included in your life-long access package:
All content tested and refined in our real life events with up to 100+ people as well as in 1:1 practice and with small groups. (Equivalent to a year-long in-person training.)
So you can re-find quickly what you are looking for, right when you need it. You will also find links to our sources and recommendations for further resources, if you want to take your learning even deeper.
You will always have access to the latest updates to this course, so that you can benefit from our continuous learning process.
To ask questions, share files, stories, experiences, support and connection among our growing community of grief tenders – you can continue to participate in it for as long as you want to.
You can sign up a friend for free, that will get access to all course materials, so you can embark on the journey together – to make reflection and integration of everything you learn easy, fun and so much more interesting. (In addition to this you are also invited to reach out to other people within our course-community to connect and share.)
So our whole village can meet and greet around a virtual campfire to connect with each other, as well as for some life Q&A-time our instructors.
Upon completion of the whole course content you will receive an online-course certificate in „Facilitating Grief Processes“.
At the end of each year we donate what is given, this time to Survival International, a non-profit organization supporting Indigenous peoples world wide in their struggles for social, political and economical survival, justice and freedom to keep their regenerative cultures vibrant.
“The „Medicine of grieving“ course offered me deep insights into the inner work of grieving – and the art of holding the space for someone grieving.
Elke’s knowledge and experience goes beyond stage models and touches the deep questions of how to integrate hardships, share our grief and connect to what it means for each one of us, to be alive.
This course is not only about grief – but about community building and creating rituals.
I appreciate that Elke and Aaron create awareness for cultural appropriation and diversity and invite controversy.
In my experience this is rather rare and quite needed in contexts that deal with spirituality and ritual.
The course content has helped me find diverse and enriching perspectives on grief, which I can transfer to my work as a mortician.
Beyond the content of this fantastic course, I found the network of people extremely valuable.
To share a sense of community while working with grief strengthens my roots.
The regular calls are a space to reflect and discuss experiences as a grief worker, gather support, ideas and collaborate in projects. ”
Our Basic Package includes all course material as well as access to our online community space. It includes everything described above and is especially suitable for people who enjoy studying on their own, in their own rhythm and pace.
