There are countless ways to work through our strong and sometimes difficult emotions. Dr. Vali's method of using writing and meditative poetry to manage powerful emotions, such as grief and despair, can offer yet another option. The method can stand-alone or be used in combination with ongoing therapy and other self-care practices. Read the entire text, which was a portion of research for a Masters Degree in Expressive Arts Therapy, or simply go to the appendix and make use of the simple method. No particular skill set or theology is necessary and you can custom design the practice to fit your specific journey. Grief, or even the darkest despair, can seem like a never ending abyss. One key to emotional resiliency is to honor those human feelings, feel-them-to-heal-them, but don't rent a truck and move your emotional furniture into that deep place.
