How Meditation

for Grief & Loss Helps

THESE PRACTICES CAN HELP EASE THE SUFFERING, CALM OUR HEARTS, AND OPEN TO LOVE.

Relaxation meditations can help relieve physical tension, and even change how you relate to physical pain. Often with grief we experience physical pain which just adds to the emotional pain that is present. When we are able to take care of our body, our mind experiences relief too.  

 

Concentration meditations, such as counting your breath or focusing your attention, can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. While grief does not equal depression, the experience of grief can feel very much like depression. These meditation practices signal your brain that it is safe to turn off the fight-flight-freeze response, which can help reduce anxiety. 

 

Compassion meditations can help you skillfully tend to yourself and your relationships with others. After any kind of loss, it is not uncommon to become hard on ourselves or others- we may experience blame, anger, regret, etc. We feel hurt and vulnerable. These practices can help ease the suffering, calm our hearts, and open to love so that we can honor our losses and embrace the life that is here.

 

Inquiry meditations can help us to reorient ourselves after loss. By turning towards our pain rather than avoiding it, we are able to see more clearly our own wisdom and truth. This powerful type of meditation can have a lifelong impact on how we relate to our own beautiful life.  In inquiry meditation we ask a question in a contemplative manner, and then find the stillness to

receive our own guidance. This empowers us to navigate our own path through grief rather than trying to fit into a contrived method or process.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

— MW

“Kim gave me pointers and re enforced the commitment I needed to work through everything I was going through. Our talks really gave me a new perspective of viewing my grief and processing.”

Kim Bogert | Colebird Grief & Meditation Coach

HI, I'M KIM

My personal journey in loss began when I was 2 1/2 years old. During that time, my mom suffered a traumatic bicycle accident that left her with severe tinnitus, dizziness, and gradual hearing loss that eventually led to double cochlear implant surgery.

The impact that her accident had on her and our family was immediate and lasting.

 

When I was 29, I became pregnant with identical twins.

My husband and I found out at 37 weeks during our final ultrasound that one of our twins, Cole, did not have a heartbeat. He had died from twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome some time the night before our ultrasound appointment. While we were able to save his brother, Xan, due to the fortunate timing of that appointment, the hole that was left in our hearts was vast, dark and unforgiving.

 

At 39, 2 children, one angel, 2 dogs, 3 lizards, a beautiful home, and many wonderful memories, my world as I knew it was flipped upside down once again. My marriage of 13 years was over. I was heartbroken and absolutely devastated.

He was not only my husband, he was my best friend.  

 

A year later, I lost another best friend, our 2 year old Golden Doodle named Fluffy. He was a pal to everyone, but he was my baby. He and I were in a major car accident that led to me in the hospital with a fractured sternum and other bruises, and Fluffy losing his life. Some people are surprised to learn that this was among the beasts of all of my losses. There hasn't been a day that has gone by where I haven't thought about and/or cried about Fluff. 

He was simply The Best.

 

These are a few of the losses in my life that led me to where I am today. Each of these has impacted my life tremendously. And while I couldn’t see through the heartache, anger, sadness, hurt, blame, guilt, etc. for many years, I am now able to see the lessons I have learned. It is in my personal grief that service has become an important tool for moving me forward.

It is through these losses that I have gained a compassionate ability to connect with others.

 

It is through these losses that I am able to see the resiliency of the human spirit.
