"Death is that curse that makes sweet love our anguish."

– Attributed to the Buddha in The Light of Asia

When your career involves working with illness, as does ours, you encounter dying and the apparent finality of death more frequently than most people. Meanwhile, the COVID pandemic has brought death closer to home for everyone around the world. Our Energy Medicine community has certainly been impacted, along with lifelong friends and people we’ve long admired.

We don’t know with certainty what happens to those who enter, in Shakespeare’s words, "the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns." But we do know something about the challenges for those left behind.

This issue of our Eden Energy News is dedicated both to those who have died and to those who have been left behind.

In David’s 1990 book, Rituals for Living and Dying, his co-author, Peg Elliott Mayo, wrote, "The terrible fire of grief is an energetic furnace, refining character, personality, intellect, and soul. It is a catalyst for creation. What is created may be dreadful—a distorted, unapproachable monument to despair—or a distillation of experience that is wholesome, useful, bright, and even wise."

The book introduces the term "expressive grief work" to describe the importance of emotional expression, catharsis, and addressing pain in the process of "conscious, ritualized grieving."
Most cultures have memorials and other practices that allow time where the family and other bereaved "are supported, expected, and encouraged to experience and express their anguish." (See Dondi’s beautiful video below honoring the sacred Mexican ceremony known as Dia de Los Muertos.)

The Rituals book guides the reader through a series of internal rituals "for transmuting grief to creativity." One of these is presented below (please see "A Ritual for Saying Goodbye").

We hope that whatever the challenges COVID might have brought into your life, that this month’s e-letter will bring you some comfort and inspiration.

FREE LIVE Webinar With Donna!

Successfully Dealing with Long-Haul COVID

For an increasing number of people who technically recover from COVID-19, lingering covid-related symptoms can remain for months - making it difficult for life to return to normal. Fatigue, brain-fog, shortness of breath, heart issues, and joint pain are just some of the most common symptoms.

Because Long-Haul COVID is only recently getting the attention it deserves, people suffering with Post COVID-19 symptoms don’t always know where to turn and who to trust.

Donna, who has been observing the body’s energetic response to COVID-19, feels there are ways COVID Long Haulers can work with their underlying energy to help alleviate Post COVID-19 symptoms. Come join her in an informal, FREE online webinar where she will be sharing her one-of-a-kind insights and techniques.

Donna will go LIVE from her home in Southern California on November 13th at noon, Pacific for this FREE webinar. If you can’t make it LIVE, we will record the video and post on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

Breaking Free of Addiction
See How Energy Psychology Can Speed Recovery

More than 30 million Americans have had a drug use disorder at some time in their lives. Drug overdose deaths have more than tripled since 1990. And addictions are notoriously difficult to treat. Relapse is frequent.

A growing number of therapists and treatment facilities are finding that integrating acupoint tapping into addiction treatment improves outcomes. Treatment for substance use disorders may be done in the context of individual, group, or family therapy, inpatient or outpatient. It often requires a multimodal approach.

For instance, a professionally-supervised intervention by family and friends may be an early step. Medication may be used to assist with withdrawal and cravings, to discourage future ingestion of the substance, or to treat psychiatric conditions not directly related to the addiction. A 12-step or other peer-support program may be part of the treatment regime. Actions may be taken to limit access to individuals or settings that support the addiction or access to the substance itself. Treatment may be done in the context of individual, group, or family therapy, inpatient or outpatient.

Within whatever the treatment plan, acupoint tapping protocols can be used to literally change a person’s neurological landscape in ways that rapidly reduce cravings, anxiety, depression, trauma, and self-defeating behaviors.
