I joined the Passing Through Grief (workshop) to keep a friend company and because I was feeling ongoing anxiety and depression of my own. Although I had doubts that this would change things for me, I was happily surprised by the end of the workshop . . . I had moved way past a loss that had haunted me for decades. I learned so much about grieving that I feel more prepared to face future losses in a healthier manner, but I would/will contact Natalia in the future, if the need arises.
I highly recommend Natalia Volz.Penny, Pennsylvania
I am GRATEFUL from THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.
I truly thought I was beyond hope, and most certainly beyond help. My brain was fried. My heart was so heavy. I couldn’t relate to my friends, and they definitely couldn’t relate to me! I felt emotionally isolated, and REALLY, really angry. I was such a wreck. Someone passed along Natalia’s name, so I hopped onto her website... I watched one of her YouTube videos... then I binge watched all of them! Finally, someone who was speaking my language. Even though I was skeptical about whether or not I would ever feel better, I felt an immediate connection with Natalia, I saw that this was a woman who had the capacity to be with me in my own darkness. I decided to do her 12 week program, and honestly it’s one of the best things I’ve done for myself.
Natalia gets grief like no one I’ve ever met. She doesn’t try to “fix”, but models the type of behavior that is actually helpful in supporting people so that they can move through their own grief. I learned so much in our time together. I learned about grief and the way that it effects the brain (“oh, you mean I’m not CRAZY, my brain is just going haywire because of all the loss I’m experiencing? Oh!!”) and how to be supportive of others that are dealing with loss. She was patient with me when I would get anxious and frustrated. She would simply meet me where I was, every single time.
I got so much out of working with Natalia. I feel more balanced, content, and I see a path forward.
I would recommend working with Natalia if you feel hopeless. If you’ve been grieving for 20 years. Or two weeks. I would recommend working with Natalia if you have a sick family member or friend. If you have layers of loss, transition, change, etc and feel like you just don’t know where to begin. I’d recommend Natalia if you thought you had a handle on your grief, but then something happened and you feel like you’re back at square one. Or square minus one. I would recommend Natalia, period.Annie, Washington
I turned to Natalia (because) I was stuck in my grief over some losses … (end of) my marriage, selling my house that I raised my kids in, but the final loss that sent me down was the breakup of the man I was seeing for two and a half years. I would highly recommend Natalia if you are sad and can’t get through it. You never get over it, but move through it, with the help of this program it is possible. My experience (with Natalia's program) was very good! I felt safe to say what happened without judgment. The outcome and/or benefits were more than I could have ever expected!
I turned to Natalia to help myself to deal with my personal losses. I lost my father many years ago to a tragic suicide. I lost my husband to cancer when I was 48. I thought that I had survived and moved on, but recovery was only partial. There was still tremendous pain. My experience working with Natalia was positive and productive - feeling great growth in my coping skills and energy level now that the burdens have lifted. I would highly recommend Natalia if you are struggling to move on from the pain of a loss - any loss.Sara, Pennsylvania
I turned to Natalia to seek help for my mother, who lost her husband...Mom has made incredible progress in the last year after working with Natalia...She seems to be much stronger now... I am both extremely happy for her, and incredibly thankful that she found the right person to help her ....I would highly recommend NataliaMark, Ontario, Canada
I turned to Natalia to seek help for my mother, who lost her husband (my stepfather, and an amazing person!) tragically. We are a very close family, but unfortunately no support... helped Mom with her grief. That was, until I met Natalia!
Mom has made incredible progress in the last year after working with Natalia... She seems happier, more content...
The benefits were basically that Mom gets her life back again. It's obviously a different life than what she had, but it is so much better than where she has been up to this point. She has been very lost in grief and bottled up...It consumed her... She seems to be much stronger now, not afraid to show her emotions or talk about things. She has become more outgoing again... I am both extremely happy for her, and incredibly thankful that she found the right person to help her ....
I would highly recommend Natalia if you, or someone you know and care for has lost someone close to them and is having a hard time, or struggling with life in the aftermath. It is hard to comprehend what a huge personal loss of a loved one can do to a person, mentally, physically and emotionally unless you or someone you love has been there. Thank God for people like Natalia!Mark, Seagrave, Ontario, Canada
I am a widow of 4 years...From the first phone call with Natalia, I knew she was someone I could openly talk to and pour out my heart...She has made my heart lighter and given me tools to deal with the ups and downs which are many.Gloria, Ontario, Canada
I am a widow of 4 years and (was) struggling with recreating my life.
I worked with Natalia on dealing with my grief, having lost so many family and friends in the last 5 years, the final and most devastating being the loss of my husband in 2012. (Prior to working with Natalia) I felt I was not getting anywhere even though I had tried so many different agendas to try and help myself out of this deep hole I had fallen into. Nothing worked, nothing helped and I didn’t think I would ever be able to move on.
From the first phone call with Natalia, I knew she was someone I could openly talk to and pour out my heart. We connected immediately and that bond grew stronger as she patiently walked me through dealing with grief. I felt maybe there was hope that I might get up and out of this deep, dark hole. She literally was a lifeline. I now feel much farther up out of that deep hole and now to figure out which way to go and how to get there.
She has made my heart lighter and given me tools to deal with the ups and downs which are many. She is always there for me and so supportive. I have been able to talk openly with her about everything. We cry together and laugh together... If I am down, she knows without me saying a word, but after being with her, my day already seems brighter.Gloria, Ontario, Canada
I am a nurse with many years of experience in end of life care. I had considered myself familiar with the many faces of grieving but,
I turned to Natalia because I had hit a period of multiple losses in both my personal and professional life. I could tell I wasn’t functioning well and needed to get help. The losses continued through the time I was working with Natalia, but I began to carry them more lightly with each passing week while we worked on a core unresolved past loss.
The homework/exercises were difficult but necessary. Natalia was always very patient, understanding and nonjudgmental – all the qualities of a true healer.
The benefits were a broader and deeper understanding of my own personal losses and a chance to learn new perspectives, including tools with which to approach my own grieving.
I would highly recommend Natalia if you are looking for a compassionate professional who understands the grieving process. You can be confident that when you do this difficult work, you will not be overwhelmed or lost as you go through the painful healing process. She is there for you!Jan, Pennsylvania
Natalia's Passing Through Grief course utilizes a well thought out process to take emotionally charged events and enable you to release the pain. Natalia's experience makes her the perfect person to lead you on this journey. In addition to healing my grief, I'm better able to listen to and empathize with others. I only wish that I'd found this course years ago.Carol
I worked with Natalia on healing the grief of loss of my mother to Alzheimer’s – not death. My experience was very thorough and healing. She (Natalia) made me see things so differently about grief... (it) allowed me to feel I could go on with a better attitude and tools I could rely on. She (Natalia) is a great support and her process works. I feel lighter.Lisa, Ontario, Canada
(The workshop) was even more than I expected. It gave me a chance to release thoughts and pain I was carrying in my heart.Pat, Pennsylvania
Natalia, you make miracles happen, I am much more relaxed talking about my father… and thinking of him does not hurt anymore.Lucia, Switzerland
Wonderful! Thank you Natalia for being brave enough to share your grief journey with us so we could learn to heal from our losses. So thankful for this workshop. Sophia, Pennsylvania
I love the fact that Natalia suffered a loss and brought her experience to us. I relate better with people who have lived through what I have experienced.Cindy, Pennsylvania
(Natalia) was compassionate…. I received knowledge about grief, myths and the essence of forgiveness to release from pain. It provided closure to personal issues that were still lingering in my consciousness. It provided tools for dealing with all sorts of loss. Victor, Pennsylvania
Amazing- Helps me with everything in my life. (I gained) comfort with my feelings and more aware of others and how to let them have theirs.Michelle, Pennsylvania
Natalia was very kind and I am glad to have done this process with her. I feel lighter! I feel happier. Natalia was very patient... I highly recommend that anyone who has experienced loss go through this.Kristine, Pennsylvania
Amazing! Nothing short of amazing. Natalia, you are an amazing individual. Thank you.Barbara, Pennsylvania
I turned to Natalia because I needed to sort out the difficult relationship I had with my father and I wanted to free myself from the pain I had been carrying around with me since he passed away unexpectedly five years ago.
My experience with Natalia was deep… and during the process I always felt supported by her….After the final puzzle piece was set, I felt my heart become lighter and a sensation of freedom overcame me. I am extremely thankful to Natalia for her patience and understanding.
I would highly recommend Natalia if you are looking for overcoming your grief in a gentle, patient and reassuring way. She is empathic, sensitive, understanding and has a beautiful and huge heart. Her help is inestimable, invaluable.Lucia, Ticino, Switzerland
I have been a student of personal development and spiritual growth for more than 20 years and, in my experience, Natalia is one of the best. The depth of her compassion, acceptance and support is rare and the grief method she teaches is wowza powerful. It has freed me to love in a way that no other approach has. If you are drawn to be supported by her, trust that. It is a privilege to work with Natalia.Charlene, Canada
