Today I dig into the topic of fear and grief. They are intertwined, so how appropriate is the tie into Halloween? This episode is coming out the week leading up to Halloween 2021. I am planning a whole week of Instagram Posts, Live pop ins and even a Special Halloween Edition of "Down the Rabbit Hole" Episode next week - WHY you ask? Well, because grief and fear and spirits and sad, dark and terrifying things all happen this time of year. AND because I love Halloween and because I can honestly. I hope you find something of value - or insightful - or even fun this week!
Here are a few interesting links for you to read
The History of Halloween as told by The World History Encyclopedia (it also goes into Samhain and other related traditions as well)
The History of Halloween in Salem (because "witches" of course!)
Here's a link to listen to 5 hours (or less) of Edgar Allen Poe - and scroll down for some other fun links to other POe links on this page
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE movies or traditions at Halloween? Do you like Michael, Jason or Freddy or are you more of a Halloween Town type? I love it all! Or do you avoid it all together?
My brand NEW website "The Leftover Pieces; Rebuilding You" is LIVE and that means my 2 x/mo FREE SUPPORT GROUP is available (it begins Oct 2) AND my first coaching options are available. The first (3 month) group is planned to begin NOVEMBER 3 and there will be a new group begin every 10 weeks after. There will be limited spots in each group so let me know if you want on the notify list! These groups will be one part community, one part discovery/growth. I believe these two things are intertwined for us in the earlier stages of grief especially.
Interested? Please DM me on Instagram or email me at anytime firstname.lastname@example.org
The website will be at www.theleftoverpieces.com (naturally, right?)
