Pain and Grief by Franco Santoro

“Pain and grief have been kept buried for ages, bred in secrecy and shame, wrapped by an ongoing conspiracy of smiles and well-being. Pain and grief are most healing and ecstatic emotions. Yes, sure, they can be hard, yet what makes them most devastating is the perverted idea that they are wrong, that they need to be hidden and fixed.

The greatest perversion I can conceive is the idea that illness and pain are a sign that there is something wrong in our life, that we have unresolved issues, that we have made mistakes. In this world everyone is bound to get ill, experience pain and die.

The greatest gift I can give to myself and the world is the joyful acceptance of this. Today I want to be real, I will not hide my pain as well as my happiness. I will not care if my gloomy face or desperate words cause concern or embarrassment in others. I do not need be fed with reassuring words about the beauty of life.

The beauty of life resides in the full acceptance of All That Is.”

Healing Meditation for those who grieve (Saltburn)


“Only people who are capable of loving strongly can also suffer great sorrow, but this same necessity of loving serves to counteract their grief and heals them.”

– Leo Tolstoi

Everyone who ever lost a loved one will certainly feel the truth in Leo Tolstoi words. Grief maybe is the love we had for each other and now just got no place to go anymore. Often it even feels as if this inner emptiness we experience will never ever be filled again.

TPPY Award Entries

Far too quickly we assume that our grief needs to be filled with something, it needs to go away, removed, locked up or left alone. Too much is the pain we find ourselves in when we grieve and too far away seems everything and everyone who offers a helping hand.

Grief comes in so many forms and furthermore it also can have many different reasons. The loss of a loved one, the break up from a relationship, unexpected circumstances which lead to changes in our lives that are out of our control can lead to grief as well.

Sometimes we grief for a job we lost, an opportunity we didn’t take or a second chance that we never got. And all of these situations do require our loving attention, our care and compassion. All our pain only heals if we give it space and time and furthermore if we see it as a part of ourselves, a part of life.


While we go through grief we can feel incredible alone and isolated. Nothing others can say or do will make our felt pain go away and no one will ever know when it will pass eventually. We often suffer in silence, when no one is watching. Times when we are allowed to be truly honest to ourselves and admit, yes, we are not okay and we don’t have to. We are out of order and we allowed to feel that way.

I created the Healing Meditation to offer a safe space in which we are able to work with our grief. Other than normal meditations we will not focus on calming our minds furthermore we will receive healing energies for all the parts that do grief within ourselves. Parts that have been neglected, lost, rejected and buried deep down in our souls.

                   Come and join us for this Healing Meditation 

    25th of February 2018 

          6pm – 7pm

at the Yoga, Meditation and Therapy Space

in Earthbeat Centre, Saltburn

These one hour sessions are very powerful and can be deeply transforming.
It is important for me that you are comfortable throughout the whole session, therefore bring what ever you need to feel comfy…from warm socks, jumper, pillow, blanket and your yoga mat.

You can sit or lay down during the session.

☆☆ Healing Meditation for Grief☆☆

In this session we will focus to bring healing to parts within ourselves that are grieving. No matter if we moan for the loss of a loved one, the end of a relationship, the state of the world or missed opportunities and second chances we didn’t take. Important is that we become aware of our grief, that we give it space and love. So it can be transformed and integrated into our whole being.

I will guide you into a state of deep relaxation in which you then will receive healing energies that I am channeling from the universe into the healing space for you.

This healing meditation session is limited to 8 participants. Everybody welcome.

☆☆☆ If you decide to come ☆☆☆

I would like you to bring a small or big stone from your home or one you collected from the beach or somewhere else. If you have time to paint it…please do so. If not, please at least put your name on it, with the intention that you will bring it to our healing meditation.

It is very important that we learn to embody our emotions no matter what they are. In this session the stone will help us with that.

☆☆☆ How to book ☆☆☆

This is a pre-booked session only because for the healing process we need to be committed. The moment you decide to come and pay the session you energetically comitt to the healing.

A session is 60min and is £10 (non-refundable)

You can pay via paypal, bank transfer or in cash if you local.
