Marrying Yourself After Becoming a Widow: A Beautiful Ritual to Help You Recover

November 27, 2019

Being left behind takes quite a bit of getting used to, there is no doubt about it. But we can’t bury ourselves in our grief for the rest of our lives. We need to find a way to recover and move on. Some of us choose to remarry, and so did I, although this is a different kind of marriage.

Everyone should read this

A deeper intimacy

"Jane's work has finally got us going on something we had been saying for ages 'would be a good idea', and it is much more than about just the legal necessities. Just as important for us was to explore what each of us needs to know about continuing life without our partner. This has surprisingly brought a depth of intimacy between us - looking at the possibility of incapacity and death for either one of us has not been the dreadful subject one could imagine. Now the ball is rolling it feels good and positive". Hugh & Janet, Scotland

A healing experience

"Reading Gifted by Grief is a healing experience.  Jane has written a raw memoir, as her friend Andrea Gardner says, that is intimate and spacious, private and revealing, and honest and wise. In sharing her journey with grief, Jane helps us with our journey too.  I feel lighter each time I read another bit of her manuscript. In witnessing her healing, I am experiencing my own.  I trust that you will experience something like this too". Dr. Robert Holden

Absolutely brilliant!

"Thanks so much for the BIG course. You are absolutely brilliant at it and the course is very thorough and well thought out. I love your combination of practical, matter of fact information, plus your loving kindness and care for people’s difficult experiences" Lisa Mead, Scotland

An end to procrastination

"I was aware I needed to take care of my end of life stuff, as I am downsizing before a move abroad. But my procrastination had been going on for at least two years!  Finally, through doing the BIG Method course, I have added to what I already have, a document of how I want my final days to be; ring-binder folder so everything is in one place; documentation re who needs to know what, and where it is, including all digital info, passwords, etc." Helen Sharp, England

A sense of peace

"I've always been interested in learning more about the subject of death.I feel like I have a sense of understanding of when it becomes 'my time' to let go of mind, body and soul, but I didn't have any understanding of the other important tasks that should be taken care of before I go. After taking Jane's course I feel more at ease with having my documents completed and a sense of peace that my family and friends will know my wishes for my last chapter in life" Lorrie Tyler, USA

Relaxed, happy and empowered

"Before I worked with Jane, I was feeling like I needed to have every single detail in place to run my business. Since I have taken her wise advice, I have realized how much I do accomplish, how much I've achieved this year, even with some creative clutter here and there. I've got three books in progress, written numerous reviews for international bestsellers for New York Journal of Books, won three literary awards, and gained readers and clients. Plus I've improved my health and now have an up-to-date will and power of attorney. This has made me feel more relaxed, happy, and empowered for my future. Thanks Jane!"  Kathy Ramsperger, Canada
