When the holiday season approaches and darkness overshadows the light, the pressure for belonging increases, the absence of our dear ones become more apparent, and grief surfaces in our hearts and bodies.

This lecture will provide an introduction to a few techniques to promote the transformation of grief. Participants will learn about the physical symptoms of grief, its psycho-neuro-immunological bases, and a set of simple yoga exercises to address them- while aiding the psychological transformation of grief into a resource for personal growth.
