Eurotas Conference 2019
Meeli Laane, Transpersonal Psychotherapist and a Grief Counsellor.
My major is in International Business. Life pushed me to focus on the area that has fascinated me the most since the childhood – the complexity of human being and emotions.
I’ve graduated Estonian School of Transpersonal Psychology and Hypnotherapy. I’m specialised in grief, developing my own model of grief therapy currently and being a certified Grief Recovery Method Specialist. I have my own therapy practice and Therapy Center in the magical Estonian forest where I combine the wisdom and presence of the nature with therapeutic methods.
Grief in Transition – hindering or empowering force?
Transition of the world impacts all of us in a similar yet in an individual way. What existed and used to work is not working anymore and there is no specific knowledge on what is ahead. Being in the middle of transition where there is no old, no safe and known way of living, reactions of grief appear. When I talk about grief, I talk about an emotional reaction to a loss of any kind. Grief is the conflicting feelings caused by the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior. It is a process of accepting and welcoming the change – accepting that what was, will never be there and the acceptance and creation of the new. Unresolved grief, that is unfortunately very common in our society – the inability to grieve – results in malfunctions where people instead of embracing and empowering the change use defence mechanisms, hindering the transition trying to avoid from further pain or escaping from the existing pain. Transition is unsafe – what used to be there, will never be there again and what is ahead is unknown and what is unknown is frightening – therefor unsafe. It’s time to learn how to turn grief into empowering force and presence in the process of change – to empower the transition.
