The term bereavement actually means to be torn apart. If a person gives this much thought, one realizes, this is quite like what it feels when an enormous loss happens. We actually feel as though our world, our life, our self, our body, our soul and heart has been torn apart and will never feel the same again.
The name "Somewhere in Between" comes from my belief, based on my professional and personal experience, once the loss and/or a trauma has occurred, we are no longer in the place we yearn for, nor are we yet where we desire to be. We are "in between".
The face of loss has many different features and is complex and varies for everyone.
"We must surrender to the energies of grief and descend into and through the experience. In so doing, we create conditions that allow and encourage something new to arise from within us. With loving companions, we rise from the depths of our grief and discover unexpected healing and transformation. This healing occurs not by separating ourselves from the pain, but by attending to it. Yes, Helen Keller was right when she observed, 'The only way to the other side is through'.”
