“What is wrong with me?”

“Why am I still so sad?”

There’s nothing wrong with you. You just live in a culture that’s terrible at grief. Really.

And did you know grief doesn’t just show up when someone you love dies? It can be the loss of a normal life (hello 2020… and, well, 2021 too). Or it can be the mourning for a relationship that no longer exists. It can be the heartache of infertility. Grief can also come around when a big life thing you expected to happen… just doesn’t.

This current cohort is specifically for folks who have experienced non-death-related loss — aka ambiguous grief. You will be led through the essential tasks of grief, helping you build an understanding of your experience psychologically, physically and interpersonally.

The course was created with Nora McInerny, whose 2018 TED talk on grief has more than 50 million views worldwide (because grief is as universal as it is personal), and Dr. Anna Roth, who is a licensed holistic psychologist. The cohort aspect will be facilitated by Dr. Adrienne VanZomeren (Dr. V), a clinical psychologist who focuses on depression and anxiety and is part of the Still Kickin staff.

We’ll dig into essential truths that every griever feels, and what to do about them:

- Grief Brain: If you’re not as sharp as you used to be, if you feel like you’re losing it? You are, kind of! And you’ll leave this course knowing how to work with this new version of yourself.

- Loneliness: Where did everyone go? Why did the phone stop ringing? We’ll help you build the support system you need.

- Anger: Grief is so, so much more than just crying. If you’re boiling with rage... we get you. We’ve got you.

- What now? What does it mean to live fully in the face of loss? We will help you make a plan to reinvest in your life.

This content is self-paced; in addition, we’ll have three virtual working sessions (completely optional) over the next several weeks so you can connect with others moving forward with their ambiguous grief. You'll have access to the audio lessons and worksheets forever, so you can return to them whenever you need to! Additionally, you'll have an online virtual space in our Still Kickin Club where you can continue the conversations from our calls.

Lastly, we also offer a payment plan option. Just select that pricing option during enrollment, and you'll be all set.

Grief is chronic, but it does get better. Thanks for joining us.

NOTE: This e-course curriculum is similar to our Hot Young Widows Club e-course but was re-imagined, re-reconfigured, and re-recorded for grievers of all types. If you previously signed up for the Hot Young Widows Club e-course, you might wanna skip this one, since the material is similar.

"Your course was (and is) the best thing I did for my grief. I have read, meditated, prayed, cried, yelled, sworn, slept, eaten and drank my way through this, but the most in control I have felt was taking your course."

"I have been grieving for over two years. I didn’t think there would be more to learn, but I was happily wrong. You presented new information that helped. Thank you both."

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start? How long does it last?
We're open to enrollment starting Friday, January 29th and close to new signups on Wednesday, February 10th (or when all available spots are all filled). The course officially kicks off on Thursday, February 11th at 5PM Central with a live, virtual working session led by Dr. V. That said, we encourage you to work through the audio lessons and writing exercises at your own pace! Once you're enrolled, you have access to the materials forever.
Can I get a refund if I decide the course isn't for me?
We of course (pun intended) hope the course is helpful in your grief journey, and we've laid out the course curriculum ahead of time so students know what to expect when they enroll. We will not be giving out refunds after a student enrolls in the course.
Who is this course for?
This course was created for grievers of all types. Dr. Anna's expertise is in all different kinds of grief, so her professional approach (and the skills and tools she provides throughout the e-course) are universal. Dr. V.'s expertise is in treating depression and anxiety. So we've got you covered. Grief doesn't necessarily mean a death occurred. And this specific cohort is for folks dealing with ambiguous grief.
How do I know if now is the right time for me to take this course?
We ask that you do an honest assessment of where you are in your grief journey to determine if this class is most likely to be helpful or overwhelming. For most, the desire to avoid and the presence of intense pain and discomfort is to be expected. You will likely feel some hard emotions during this course, but also some good ones — hope, validation and a sense of reassurance that what you are going through is “normal.” However, timing is important. If you're currently in a state of shock, now might not be the best time to take in the information this course will provide. If you are experiencing frequent dissociation, are actively engaging in self-harming or addictive behavior, or are experiencing suicidal ideation, then you are in need of in-person professional help ASAP, and we do not recommend taking this course at this time. If you are on the fence, take a look at the course overview with your therapist to determine if the content feels manageable for you!
If I previously took your Hot Young Widows Club E-Course for grief, should I take this one too?
Probably not! The curriculum is similar to our Hot Young Widows Club e-course but was re-imagined, re-reconfigured, and re-recorded for grievers of all types. If you previously signed up for the Hot Young Widows Club e-course, you might wanna skip this one, since the material is similar.
Funds are a bit tight right now. Do you offer a payment plan?
We absolutely do! Just select that pricing option during enrollment, and you'll be all set.
Do I take this course on a computer? On my phone? What about a tablet?
If you'd like to listen to audio lessons and access course materials on your phone or tablet, we highly recommend doing so by logging into Teachable via a web browser (e.g., Chrome, Safari) as opposed to downloading the Teachable app. Many of the course materials are not accessible when using the current version of the Teachable app, and we don't want you to miss out on anything! Logging into Teachable via a web browser on your desktop or laptop computer works great as well. All virtual working sessions will take place over Zoom. If you haven't used Zoom before, don't worry! You'll receive instructions on how to log in and join the calls before they take place.
When are the optional virtual working sessions?
Our virtual calls are always optional, and we send the recording of the call out about one week after so you can review and go back to it whenever you want. The course kicks off with a virtual working session call with Dr. V. on Thursday, February 11th at 5PM Central. There's a mid-point cohort working session call on Thursday, March 4th at 5PM Central. The cohort wraps with a third live, virtual wrap-up working session with Dr. V. on March 25th at 5PM Central. Once enrollment closes, you will be sent the registration links for each session through Teachable, so make sure your settings within the Teachable platform allow you to receive emails from us — this will be how we communicate with the cohort. We don't want you to miss any details! When you register for the live session, you will receive a confirmation email with the link to get into the call.
