Module 1
Introduction

In this introduction to the course, Sheryl tells you what you can expect and how to approach the material.

In this session, you will learn about Sheryl and receive a basic overview of what to expect in this course, including to core context that informs her work: that when she talks about anxiety or grief she's not only interested in fixing or curing but in understanding and healing at a very deep level.

Here you will learn a very simple, on-the-spot practice called Tonglen that will teach you, over time, how to reverse the habitual and natural tendency to avoid pain and seek pleasure.

Stuck pain creates trauma. Your breakup, as painful as it feels right now, is actually an opportunity for you to heal past pain that may be stuck in your body by learning how to be with your present pain. Here you will learn about one of the most powerful tools we have to keep pain from damming up.

Module 2
The Foundation

Some people call the heart-shattering, dark times in our lives the dark night of the soul; others call it the hero’s journey or the death and rebirth process. Your breakup is your opportunity to shed what is longer serving you, and the context of "dark night of the soul" can serve as your beacon of light during this dark time.

Here you will learn about the context of the three stages, which will help you understand where you are and where you’re going. The three stages of transitions offer a roadmap that will contain you during this transition and all change that you confront for the rest of your life.

The key to moving through a breakup to completion so that you're ready to begin your next relationship on a healthy foundation is allowing yourself time and space to grieve.

Module 3
The Willingness To Feel Your Pain

In order to let yourself feel your pain - which is essential to healing from loss - it's important to understand types of pain and the difference between healthy pain and victim pain.

If you're having trouble feeling your pain it's like because you're resisting it. As resistance is a form of fear, we need to explore the fear of pain so that you can get beneath the barriers, make time for your feelings, and allow the feelings to flow.

Healing from a breakup includes handling your inevitable anger responsibly. Anger is a stage of grief. If our culture frowns upon grief, it carries even more judgment towards anger. Certainly unhealthy or abusive expressions of anger aren't okay or helpful to anyone. But it's often suppressed anger that then mutates into inappropriate anger at inappropriate times.

Module 4
Exploring The Relationship: What Can You Learn About Yourself, Your Ex, And Love?

Now it's time to shift out of your heart space for a bit and engage the left side of your brain as you start to make sense of the relationship and the breakup.

Part of the grief following a break up involves grieving the fantasy of your misguided conditioning about love. When Sheryl is working with clients in the aftermath of a break up, the most common reason that they’re unable to move on is because they're mistakenly equating "passion" with real love. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Module 5
