Mending Brokens Hearts
The Mending Broken Hearts program provides culturally-based healing from grief, loss, and Intergenerational Trauma, especially for native peoples from the United States and Canada.
Unresolved grief is demonstrated in the many social issues that Native people experience, as represented in the "sick" forest illustration. Traditional healthy cultures have been made "sick" by the anger, guilt, shame and fear, passed on from generation to generation. This creates a "culture" that is shame-based. This sense of shame and unresolved grief contributes to the behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual issues that challenge wellness.
This curriculum can be done in a Women's only, Men's only, co-ed group or individually.
