The Regenerative Power of Grief
All living beings have the capacity to love deeply. This love is eternal and never dies. Because we are all connected, through the one web of life, when one feels pain and suffering, it affects all. Our gift is that we have the innate capacity to transcend all forms of suffering. This course will explore the interconnectedness of all beings and metaphysical truths through the lens of grief, loss, and healing.
In this course, Paula Petry will blend her personal story, suffering the loss of her daughter, with science and lead you on a journey to experience and understand the powerful regenerative process always available to us. Through story, you will be witness to the stages of the Hero’s Journey and the six stages of grief. You will study leading grief experts’ views on these stages; provided exercises to facilitate your personal grief process. Through story, you will learn the power of beliefs, thoughts, words, and actions to support those in grief, including climate grief. You will study similar paths to heal the grieving Earth.
Through story, you will witness the healing power of reconnecting with a departed loved one. You will study and hear from one of the most renowned authors and researchers on near death experiences and life after death, Raymond Moody. Life between lives research, research on children’s memories of previous lives, and research on past lives will be reviewed.
Through story, you will witness the interconnectedness of all of Life. Learn about the Akasha and shamanic energy medicine practices as examples of the existence of the unifying field and the power of the mind to direct healing energy. You will study and hear from the founder of Unified Therapy, Dr. Paul Canali, on our body’s ability to integrate trauma. The expressive arts and other holistic modalities will be reviewed.
Through story, you will witness the power of surrendering, hope, faith, courage, and action to create a new reality for oneself, one’s loved ones, and all beings. Through story, study, shamanic journeys, and action you will deepen your connection with Self, your loved ones, and with our Mother Earth.

Dr. Paula Petry’s journey of self-discovery, healing, and personal empowerment began with the birth of her daughter, Alexandra, who was born with a severe disability.

She brought that knowledge and her passion for family-centered care services to her faculty position at the University of Miami, School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics— for over a decade preparing pediatricians to work with children with special health care needs. Her daughter’s death brought great loss, suffering, and new beginnings. She studied energy medicine, sound healing, mindfulness, and somatic therapies to heal. She now finds purpose and meaning in helping others pave their path forward to their own bright beginnings.
