The Grief Sessions #5: Honoring Our Losses and the Life Force Within with Dr. Ken Druck

In the Balance

“Sometimes in the beginning of grief we feel like ‘How dare I continue? How dare I go on with life when someone I love is not able to? How dare I ever experience joy again?’ And yet writing new chapters of life is what they would wish for us. It’s a way of taking them with us.”  In this last episode of the Grief Sessions, Susan talks with Dr Ken Druck, an author and pioneer of helping people become more resilient and courageous, particularly after the loss of a loved one. Ken talks with us about his own journey of embracing life after the loss of his beloved daughter, his own work and what he calls the “six honorings,” and how to become more compassionate and resilient while facing the challenges of today’s world.

FR Ep #132 Raising an Aging Parent with Dr Ken Druck

Feminine Roadmap

Today on Feminine Roadmap we are discussing raising an aging parent with Dr. Ken Druck. We are now experiencing what they call the sandwich generation, the generation sandwiched between providing care and support for their children as well as their aging parents. Dr. Ken navigates the discussion of how to raise an aging parent with compassion, clarity and honesty while skillfully looking at it from every perspective. Raising an aging parent isn’t for slouches, it’s complex, challenging and sometimes confusing journey where roles begin to reverse and family dynamics kick into gear. In order to clarify what raising an aging parent is, Dr. Ken explains that it isn’t dismissing them, taking control or disempowering them but that it is truly loving and supporting your parents, raising them up so that they can meet the challenges that they are facing. It’s truly a 2 way street with both sides facing their own fears and obstacles as things begin to change so grab a cuppa something wonderful to be encouraged! You don’t have to raise your aging parent alone, Dr. Ken has the insights you need! Www.feminineroadmap.com/episode132/
