Shamanic GriefWork Program
Using spiritual techniques including shamanic journeying, rituals, ceremony and sharing, this griefwork program is designed to help participants  move through the grieving process with intention and awareness. 

Working together over several weeks within a small group, we create a circle of safety and openness in which participants can explore the deeper meanings within their losses and seek spiritual assistance as they heal.

The program is for anyone who has experienced a deep loss such as: 

  • the death of a loved one 
  • a divorce 
  • a health crisis 
  • the loss of a career.

We will meet 7 times over the course of 8 weeks at 7:30pm on Wednesday evenings. Four of these sessions will be at my home in Hackettstown and will be about 2 hours long. In between these sessions will be group phone conferences of about 1 hour long. The phone conferences don’t require any special equipment. You just dial in to a predetermined phone number and enter the pass code and, through the magic of teleconferencing, we will all be talking to one another. 

If you decide to commit to this program, it’s very important to your process as well as that of other members that you make every effort to participate in all the sessions.

FeeThere is a flat fee of $140 for the entire program, payable in advance. If this creates a financial hardship for you, please speak with me about special arrangements. Please mail your check to Julie Lange Groth, 106 Sunnyview Ave. West, Hackettstown, NJ 07840.

A Travelogue Through Grief and the Unexpected
by Julie Lange
From Participants:
"As a recently widowed woman, I was lost, broken and heartsick. The work I did in your grief workshop provided me with a place where others shared these same experiences and emotions, skills I could use to uncover and release the deepest of these secret wounds, and direction and guidance from loved ones lost and new guides.  Thank you, Julie."
"I think this might be the most valuable workshop I’ve ever taken, and I’ve taken many, many over the past 6 years since the breast cancer....  I think journeying is fascinating and it seems to go to a level I don’t usually experience…that’s one part.  The major part is what happens after journeying…the sharing, the discussion, the light bulb moments" Diane
When I joined the Grief Group Circle, my husband had been dead for a little over a year. During that time I was functioning day-to-day but was always tired and had no real interest in living.Working with four other people through the process Julie facilitated gave me back my life. As a direct result of one of the exercises, I experienced a significant breakthrough. While I will always love and miss my husband, I have become able to commit to an intention of healing and growth for myself and the desire to help others as well, as my journey leads on.I send my thanks and deep respect to my fellow Griefers and my limitless gratitude and love to Julie for her compassion, example and inspiration.Sally
