Living Grieving


Shamanic energy teacher Karen Johnson writes with both hope and compassion to help readers see grief as a journey of transformation.

'The owner's manual for embracing grief with courage and transforming it into wisdom, to discover the ultimate and lasting gift of joy.' Alberto Villoldo PhD, world-renowned shamanic teacher

Before Karen Johnson experienced grief, it never occurred to her to see it as a journey of transformation or to allow herself to grow into the state of living with the wisdom of grief. She had to figure it out by herself. It was a lonely path of self-discovery that was not mainstream and not accepted.

Karen didn't think she could ever find her way out of despair, but she found a process that worked, a sacred journey and map, and she wants to share this with you. She wants to show you that we can embrace death to ultimately bloom and grow into a better version of ourselves.

Living Grieving is structured around practices that are part of the Four Winds Medicine Wheel as developed by Alberto Villoldo PhD. In each chapter, Karen blends her personal story and meaningful experiences with each direction of the Medicine Wheel, offering exercises related to each of the four practices.
