Creative Ideas to Transform Grief and Difficult Life Transitions
by Claudia Coenen
A card set based on expressive therapy to help readers work through their grief in a positive, transformative way. The cards encourage the reader to completely engage with their grief through storytelling, self-care and ritual, gently guiding the reader through the healing process in a way that best suits their own circumstances.
The Karuna Cards were developed in counseling with bereaved families and individuals, and are designed to help anyone struggling with loss, grief or difficult life transitions.
Writing in a journal is an effective therapeutic technique, but many people find it difficult to know where to begin. The Karuna Cards help by providing prompts and questions that can be used as starting points, in addition to suggesting therapeutic activities or ideas for simple meditations. Readers can respond to each card by doing the activity, writing in a personal journal or using the card in conversation with someone they trust.
The cards can be used by individuals at home or with professionals in counseling sessions, and come with a booklet that provides guidance and recommendations for how to get the best from each card.
