The Grief of Evolution

The Grief of Evolution

By Stephanie Harris | February 5, 2018

In a few of my blogs, I mentioned how, for so many people I have spoken to, last year was a big year. It felt as though I would hear about people passing away, relationships ending etc. Without a doubt, it felt as though, last year, life was strongly guiding us to see the truth…

The Grief of Achieving

By Stephanie Harris | January 22, 2018

Following on from last weeks blog, New Year’s Resolutions, this week I wanted to take a moment to explore the grief of achieving and how this is potentially affecting us. When I talk of the “grief of achieving”, I’m talking about how there has become a culture where we feel like we constantly need to…

New Year’s Resolutions

By Stephanie Harris | January 15, 2018

A piece from Tony Robbins recently caught my eye while on social media, quoting “Research shows that 80% of people give up on their New Year’s resolution by the 2nd week of February!” Part of me wasn’t surprised when I read this, thinking about some of my own New Year’s resolutions in the past.

The Christmas holidays can be one of the starkest reminders of the reality that our loved ones are no longer with us. Brendon’s birthday is on the 29th December, and for many years after his death, it wasn’t a time of year I looked forward to. I was trying to engage and enjoy Christmas day…

When we are young, small children and things happen in our lives considered cruel, harsh, traumatic, etc. as we are still very young and our life experiences and emotional / mental functioning is still growing, when treated a certain way as children, we need to explain that mistreatment / situation and why that occurred to…

Across my blogs and book, Death Expands Us, I often discuss the physical impact grief or trauma has on our bodies. It is something I have been forced to discover over the last few years. I have learnt a lot about it recently. The one I really want to talk about in this blog is…

What Would You Do?

By Stephanie Harris | October 23, 2017

With about nine weeks to go until Christmas and before a new year rolls around again, for some, this will be an opportunity to reflect on the last ten months, and for others, a time of preparing and planning for next year. So many people I have spoken to, especially recently, have found this year…
