The Grief Recovery Method

with certified Grief Recovery Specialist® + Life Coach, Libby Carstensen

Are you suffering from a broken heart? Did a death, divorce or the end of a romantic relationship cause it? Or was it caused by any of the forty other losses that a person might experience such as moving, job change, health crisis, change in finances, or pet loss? Regardless of the cause, you know how you feel, and it probably isn’t good.

The Grief Recovery Method® is a proven action program for moving beyond loss. We aren’t going to tell you, “We know how you feel,” because we don’t. Neither does anyone else. What we will do is provide a safe environment where you will be given specific tools to help you recover from loss and ultimately lead a happier life.

People say you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you what you need to do to accomplish that. The Grief Recovery Method® not only makes that possibly but provides the guidance to ensure that it happens.

September 10th, 17th, 24th

October 1st, 8th, 15th, 29th

With Reis Paluso

Saturday, SEPTEMBER 21sT + October 19th

1-5 pm

Offered on two dates, this workshop will dive into the fundamentals of the Wim Hof Method (WHM) with one of the few U.S. certified instructors. These principle techniques were developed in nature by “The Iceman” himself, Wim Hof, which he has used for over 30 years to find peace, control his mind and achieve an unprecedented level of human performance.

For four hours, you will get hands-on training with Breathing Exercises, Cold Exposure, and Mindset/Focus--the three pillars of the Wim Hof Method. This will include a light lecture that introduces the science behind the method, how it is affecting your mind and body, and how you can use the method to your advantage. In addition, you will be moving, breathing and getting into the ice, all while having a lot of fun.

After the workshop, you will be equipped with a new set of tools, training and knowledge to upgrade your daily life. As Wim says, we all have the innate ability to be Healthy, Strong and Happy. By combining the three pillars, you will unlock a wide range of benefits including: Reduced stress, increased energy, better sleep, sharpened focus and determination, increased creativity, boosted metabolism, decreased inflammation, improved sports performance and more...

Reis Paluso is a husband, father of two young girls, an owner of two start-up businesses and a surfer. He found himself searching for a way to maintain balance in life and by making a mind-body connection through the Wim Hof Method, he began on a journey of unlocking his true potential and found the capacity to dig much deeper into the things he is passionate about. He followed his heart down the path of becoming a Certified Instructor in order to share these powerful tools with the world. Reis hosts workshops, private trainings and retreats, and is based out of San Diego, California.
