The mission of Sunrise at Midnight is to provide to individuals and their support network a comprehensive wellness program addressing issues related to loss and personal life events.
The vision of Sunrise at Midnight is to encourage, equip, and empower individuals, families, and communities by providing the life skills necessary to address issues of loss and change.
Emotion or Intellect
Unresolved grief is about the entire range of emotions that attach to all relationships. In our society we are sometimes taught to believe that intellectual understanding about grief will help us become complete with the pain caused by loss.
Using very specific actions that lead to completion of the pain, grievers are then able to get to their "heart" and recapture a sense of meaning and value, even though their life may have been dramatically affected by the loss that brought them to our program. Our focus is NOT designed to help the griever "cope."
The Grief Recovery Method® is designed to "move them beyond" and enrich their lives.
We teach Relationship and Life skills that are practical ways of how to deal with the "living" as well as those relationships that have ended or changed.
The goal of the Grief Recovery Method® is to "complete the relationship" that has ended or changed.
Life Changing Opportunity
Participation in the Grief Recovery Method® Program offers the chance for a richer and more fulfilling life.
