Join our April Workshop, so you can learn the most common reasons guilt gets in the way and what you can actually do about it. Every widow deserves a future without guilt and that means you, too.
Designed exclusively for widowed moms, the Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop offers practical tools and helpful topics you won’t find anywhere else. The best part? It takes only 90 minutes per month!
But through the science of Post Traumatic Growth and Positive Neural Plasticity, experts now know that we can leverage our loss to “bounce forward.”
We can use our whole life experience, especially the hard parts, to create a future that is even more of what we want… our relationships can become deeper and more meaningful, we can become more in touch with who we are and what we value… we can actually create more satisfying lives BECAUSE of our loss, not in spite of it.
This is what’s possible for you.
Wishing you could start loving your life again, even though your partner died?
Introducing a powerful monthly workshop series created exclusively for widowed moms by Master Certified Life Coach, Grief Expert and host of The Widowed Mom Podcast, Krista St-Germain.
While at the same time not wanting to settle for a “new normal” you didn’t ask for but not knowing what to do about it?
If this sounds familiar, you’re in the right place and my Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop is just what you’ve been looking for.
After my husband, Hugo, was killed by a drunk driver when I was 40, I struggled to find the resources I needed. Everything I found online was depressing and I didn’t know any widows I could relate with. I wanted to love life again but I didn’t know how.
Fortunately I discovered life coaching and Post Traumatic Growth. The tools were so powerful that I decided to devote my career to helping other widows genuinely love their lives again, too. None of us need to settle for a “new normal” that’s less than what we want and that includes you!
March – “Getting Rid of Overwhelm”
Who knew being a widow was going to feel so overwhelming? There’s so much to do and juggle and all the pressures of being a solo-parent (not to mention all the emotional weight we’re trying to carry).
In fact, overwhelm is one of the most common emotions widowed moms experience, and it’s no surprise that we don’t function well, make good decisions or enjoy life when overwhelm keeps dragging us down.
This workshop will teach you the true source of overwhelm (so you can change it) and tools you can use to create calm in your nervous system in just seconds. It will forever change the way you deal with overwhelm and help you know exactly what to do when it strikes.
April – “Moving Forward Without Guilt”
If you’re like most widows, there’s a little voice in the back of your head making you feel guilty for all kinds of things. It will make you feel guilty about how you handled your past…. It will tell you that you should have done it differently, been nicer, less selfish or more caring and that you shouldn’t have taken them for granted, etc.
That same little voice will make you feel guilty about how you’re handling the present moment, too. If you’re happy, it will tell you that you’re too happy and you must not have loved your spouse enough. If you’re parenting, it will tell you that you should be a better mom. If you’re back to work, it will tell you that you should be doing a better job or be further along in your grief.
And, you guessed it, that same little voice will make you feel guilty about the future… after all, if you move forward and love your life again, what does that mean about you as a spouse?
In this workshop, you’ll learn to spot the true causes of guilt so you can be free of it! You’ll also learn the difference between guilt and regret and get clear on what really needs to change so you can ditch the guilt and start living life again.
May – “Confident Decision Making”
Until becoming widows, most of us were used to making decisions with our spouse. We had the benefit of getting their perspective and hearing their opinions on big decisions. Plus, if we made a “bad” decision it wasn’t all on us.
But now that we’re left with lots of decisions to make and no one to make them with, AND we’re feeling more stressed and less confident, it’s not uncommon to dread even the smallest of decisions. So, if you’re struggling with decision-making and experiencing fear, worry or stress around even the smallest of decisions, know that you are not alone AND there is a better way.
In this workshop you’ll learn what’s actually going on in your mind that makes decision making hard (and it’s probably not what you think) so you can change your experience of decision making forever, stop second guessing yourself, and get rid of decision making anxiety for good.
June – “Post Traumatic Growth for Widows”
If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s when a widow is told to “get used to her new normal.” Because sadly, the message we often receive is “just be grateful for what you had” because it probably won’t be quite that good again. But the study of Post Traumatic Growth shows us that’s not the case!
In this workshop, you’ll learn the 5 Dimensions of Post Traumatic Growth and what research has shown is possible following trauma so you can do more than settle for a “new normal” that’s less than what you want.
Post Traumatic Growth is not for some of us, it’s for all of us. It’s absolutely possible to use your loss to create a life that’s as good or better than the life you had before without feeling guilty about it. Come learn how you can create it for yourself!
The Mom Goes On Group Monthly Workshop is an easy way for you to get support and feel better about your future!
You'll receive access to the live Monthly Workshops and recordings for as long as you are a member of The Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop program.
You’ll have the opportunity to attend one live workshop each month via Zoom. Can’t attend live? Don’t worry… all Monthly Workshops are recorded so you can benefit even when you can’t be there in person.
Along with the Monthly Workshop, you'll receive worksheets you can use to take notes and solidify what you're learning each month. You'll also receive helpful tips via email and bite-sized bits of encouragement throughout the month.
It’s convenient and entirely online so you can participate in a way that works best for you and your busy schedule no matter what time zone you live in.
Not only will you get help from Krista directly during the workshop, but you’ll feel like you got coached even when all you did was watch another participant’s coaching. Participants feel connected, understood and supported.
My partner just died…
Many women join Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop shortly after the loss of their partner. They’re often worried they’ll “do grief wrong” (even though there really is no such thing, we promise) or they’re concerned they’ll get stuck in their grief and not make progress. As long as you’re able to devote 90 minutes to supporting yourself once a month, the Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop is a powerful gift to give yourself as early as possible after your loss.
My partner has been gone for years…
One of the most common myths of grief is that “time heals” and this can be incredibly frustrating when time has passed and you still don’t feel better! If you’re tired of watching time pass and not making the progress you’d like, you’re not alone and the Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop can help!
I have young children…
Managing your grief while solo parenting and helping your children manage their grief is daunting at best. And while it’s easy to put your own needs aside and focus on your children, it’s a terrible long term strategy. Grief is a marathon, not a sprint and as cliché as it sounds, you must put the oxygen mask on yourself first. The Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop will get you headed down the path to more confidence and it’s designed with a busy solo mom’s schedule in mind.
My children are grown…
Once a mom, always a mom. And while the challenges of solo parenting adult children are different from parenting young children, they aren’t necessarily any easier. The Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop will help you improve your relationships with family members you care about, regardless of whether they live with you or have children of their own.
The Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop is an easy way to get valuable help and tools beyond what most receive in therapy or other group grief groups. All you have to do is show up, follow along for 90 minutes or watch the recording if you can’t attend live.
We get it. Some people just want to talk about how awful it is to be a widow. Our monthly workshops will help you feel more powerful and confident so you can start creating your life instead of just tolerating it.
90 minutes once a month. That’s it!
No, it doesn’t matter if your children are young or grown, you are welcome to participate!
Losing your parter to suicide is complicated and Krista has coached many widows through the nuances of healing after a suicide loss. All losses are welcome.
The Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop was designed for busy moms. That’s why all workshop calls are recorded so you can watch them when it’s convenient for you.
The Mom Goes On Monthly Workshop is designed for the woman who isn’t ready for the significant investment of a small group, high touch coaching program (like our premier Mom Goes On 6 month coaching program). And we’ve made the pricing accessible in order to serve more widows.
We are an inclusive community. If you identify as a woman and a widow, you are welcome.
Many widows had relationships that weren’t full of rainbows and daisies. Some were even separated or divorced at the time of their partner’s death. This can make grief and healing more complex. Regardless of the type of the challenges you faced while they were living, this will help!
Then our full 6 month Mom Goes On Coaching program might be a better fit for you. It’s the premier coaching and community experience for widowed moms who are serious about investing in themselves. If you’re looking to invest more than 90 minutes a month so you can get back to loving life quickly and with lots of support from Krista and her team, click here and apply for the full Mom Goes On program.
