PILLARS OF HOPE:
ICE: INDIVIDUAL COACHING EXPERIENCE
ICE: An Individual Coaching Experience (ICE) is first a client specific strategic plan that identifies the "how-to's" of acknowledged inward 'grief.' Secondly, the plan outlines 'mourning in action' in terms that provide and describe the roadmap for client-coach sessions. Many expressions may be identified by the client and implemented and practiced throughout their personal journey during the client-coach relationship. After several session(s), all goals and objectives are placed in writing and signed by the client. New goals and objectives may be implemented or deleted at any time during the grief life coaching process.
The client and certified grief life coach will develop their ICE together, first with the understanding that it is client-driven with dignity and empowerment. Secondly, goals and objectives will be determined with tentative timelines, yet with the understanding that 'grief' and 'mourning' have their own internal clock and may require modifications to this leg of the client-coach program.

PILLAR 1. FAITH.
PILLAR 2. MUSIC/ART.
PILLAR 3. SHARE.
PILLAR 4. RELAX.
Faith and thoughts of eternity cross the human mind immediately when confronted with the death and dying process of someone they love. Questions flood the soul, some with answers and others without. Although some cultures deny or disagree with life beyond death, eternity is a dynamic ever-present thought that often requires compassion and hope. After all, this is the reason why hospitals and hospice services provide Chaplains. When confronted with dying, eternity and faith do become important. We "grieve because we love," and "love works by faith," a pillar of hope through 'mourning in action.'
Music and the arts may be defined as a language all of its own, a language where human hearts are connected with melodious harmony in the midst of a personal bellowing chaos that cries out for silence from within. Gospel. Country & Western. Classical. Theater. Opera. Rock & Roll. Genres speak differently across cultures all around the world. From the academic scene, music is a profession and a form of consolation that is described as therapeutic, consoling, and a refuge when spoken words fall on the deaf ear of a hurting heart. Funerals and graveside services most often include music as being a very important element of honoring the departed loved one. As a pillar of hope, music whether enjoyed through the talent of another or expressed personally, plays a critical role in the movement from grief to healing to hope through mourning in action. In addition to music, freelance talent to create artful images resides in most people. To paint with alcohol ink, watercolors, or even acrylics is not only fun but also relaxing for many as it can provide a time of relaxation to think outside the space of grief's pain. One never knows what the outcome might be in terms of the artful image, yet it is still yours to be tucked away and saved for reflection at a later time, for then perhaps you might see something you have never seen before in regard to your healing journey of 'mourning in action.'
Share is a word that suggests the relationship of at least two people who perhaps like one another's fellowship, and enjoy, trust, and look forward to being together. This pillar of hope describes the client-coach relationship that journeys together with the experience of grief. Throughout the journey with grief every milestone that is achieved will be celebrated. The client and coach will rejoice together no matter how small or great it might seem at the moment through the process of 'mourning in action.'
Relax. Rest. Self-Care. What do these words mean in the stress-filled world we live in today? As a pillar of hope in grief life coaching, one is encouraged toward self-care in whatever way that brings refreshing rest and renewal. So many relaxation methods come to one's mind such as reading, taking a walk, family time, watching a movie, traveling, a day at the beach soaking up the sunshine, and for millions, spending time with their precious fur babies. This pillar of hope is most important, for if one does not first love themselves, it is very hard to love others and life in general, yet to just stop and "smell the roses" is an expression of 'mourning in action.'
