Grace Through Uncertainty: A 30-Day Course to Become More Comfortable with the Fear of Loss by Falling in Love with Life

Do you struggle with health anxiety, money/career anxiety, or intrusive thoughts?

Do you worry about your loved ones dying and worry about your own death?

Do you obsessively worry about your kids' safety?

Do you struggle with change, loss, and uncertainty? 

Most people struggle with change and uncertainty, but some are more attuned to these fluctuations than others. Uncertainty is part of being human, yet one of the scariest places to be is in formlessness, in groundlessness, in nameless fear or nameless grief or nameless dread. As human beings, we aren't very skilled at sitting with the groundlessness, which is why the mind wants to attach on to something tangible, something that it thinks it can control. 

At the core of intrusive thoughts is the need for certainty. At the core of health anxiety is the need for safety. At the core of money anxiety is the need for security. Our culture tells us that we can find safety and security by choosing the right partner and making the right work choices or living in the right house. Our ego tells us that we can find certainty by obsessing on a specific question in search of an answer. None of these pathways lead to true certainty, and none of them quell the anxious mind

Ultimately, we must be willing to let go of these misguided ways that we try to control. Easier said than done, I know.

How do you let go?

How do you live with uncertainty?

How do you surrender to the ocean of formlessness when our deepest fears are around the unknown? 

These are questions that I’m asked every day in my work. These are questions that I’ve grappled with in my own life. These are questions I hear in some form from my own sons. These are archetypal questions, and they deserve an answer. Which is why I created this course. 

Just like we wouldn’t sail out to sea without a compass and anchor, so we can’t swim in a sea of uncertainty without a map.

This course is a map. The tools I teach are the anchors. Humans throughout history have relied on maps and anchors to help us find ground in groundlessness and footholds in uncertainty. But our culture fails to teach them. Healthy anxiety, money and career anxiety, obsessive worrying about your kids, the fear of loss and death - these are arrows pointing us in the direction of these anchors, the soul’s way of guiding us to solid ground. 

When you sign up for the program, you will receive:

One email from me every day which will contain an article about meeting the fear of loss at the root and a tangible action that you can take toward orienting away from fear and toward well-being.

At least one video and several MP3s each week that will offer additional insight and information on that week's topic and essential visualizations and meditations that will help you connect to your personal anchors and footholds.

Access to a private, moderated forum specifically for this program. My private forums are exceptionally supportive communities where people feel safe enough to be vulnerable and do very deep work and, while participation is not essential, it can be a transformational part of the course.

Group coaching calls where you will have the chance to ask your questions and bring your concerns directly to me. All calls are recorded and your questions will be answered regardless of whether or not you can attend the calls.

How would your life be different if you weren’t buffeted daily by your fear of loss and instead felt buoyed by a deep sense of trust?

What would open up inside if you could continue to heal your anxiety and intrusive thoughts from the root - if fear in some form didn't dominate your thoughts day and night?

If you're ready to find out, take my hand and let's begin!

Please note: This course will be most effective if you've either taken one of my other courses or have been engaged in your inner, healing work through therapy or on your own.

Some responses from my past Grace Through Uncertainty participants:

Sheryl's course, Grace Through Uncertainty, was and is a Godsend. I am a sensitive person and I've had anxiety of various degrees and about different things throughout my 20s. When I found this course, I felt buried by my workload, had been soul-searching for a while to find a spiritual practice that felt true to me, and my anxiety was manifesting as health anxiety. More specifically, I was nervous at almost every meal that I was allergic to something in my food and that my throat would close. Not fun! I was on the fence about taking the class because I was not sure that I could commit to making the time every day, which to me was a flag that I truly NEEDED to make the time for this course to put my health first.

As with all of Sheryl's content, I was immediately soothed, reassured, and no longer felt alone and or shameful about my anxiety. I actually started waking up with more pep and stopped pressing "snooze" on my alarm during that first week because of how excited I felt about the course content. Of course, I still have work to do to and my anxiety is not magically gone, but I am starting to feel that inner knowing of "I'm going be okay". I'm getting better at seeing my anxiety as a messenger that's telling me to turn inward instead of seeking outward reassurance.

What I love about this course is that in addition to the wonderful readings and audio/video tracks, Sheryl gives actual practices and exercises to help both in the moment and to practice on a regular/long term basis to change your relationship to anxiety. I have been dedicated to my morning and evening practices since starting this course and have felt such comfort in connecting to something bigger than myself on a daily basis, instead of just turning to deep breathing or meditation in the actual moment of anxiety. Another perk: meeting a community of other sensitive people through the forum.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Sheryl!

Grace Through Uncertainty taught me so much about the power of prayer. When I redefined prayer from ‘a chore to do the right way’ to ‘a lifting of the heart in gratitude, joy, or longing’, my whole world shifted toward the clarity and openness I’d been seeking for so many years. A great lesson I’ve been able to incorporate is although prayer does not change outcomes, it allows me to lift the burden of worry. For me, prayer is no longer a once-in-a-while activity. It is a state of mind that I access constantly throughout my day. It mentally lifts me out of my struggles with uncertainty, fear, longing, boredom, frustration, lack of self-worth, and more. Even I am surprised to find a smile on my face where I would have previously expected a grimace. I am so grateful for this and all of Sheryl’s courses.

"All of your courses always come at a just the right time, but this one was perfect for me. I recently lost my mother to suicide and thanks to you and (all my hard work that has come form your courses through the years) I feel strong about navigating my way through this harsh reality. The way that you make connecting to god so open and with so many varying ways is the most refreshing feeling. I have been trying to connect to a church but sometimes feel discouraged if I don't align with every last aspect of it, and you just take away the pressure of feeling as if i have to be all or nothing. It's comforting to be able to just connect with the areas that speak to me and not to shame or judge the areas that do not.

"I have had this fear in my recent grief that I am not greiving enough or feeling enough and this course helped me realize again (as do all of your other courses) there is no perfect way and to really listen to myself and shut out all the outer “shoulds". This path is and has been only my path so how could anyone else suggest how I am feeling. It has also helped me slow down and feel when I need to and write about it, cry about it, talk about it and sit with it. The warmth and happiness that I feel in my heart when I think of you and your work is unmatchable. So thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"Sheryl's courses have always been incredibly helpful for me navigating through life's transitions and challenges. The Uncertainty course gave me skills and helped me tap into resources I already have for dealing with my current transition into new motherhood and dealing with the anxiety of living in this uncertain world."

"A few months after the course ended, I was having a relaxing day at home when I discover something foreign in my breast. The fear was so strong, so terrifying, it was like a surge of hot lava rushed from my head to my toes. “Cancer” I thought. I called my fiancé into the room to examine me. “I don’t think that’s anything to worry about, that is so small! But, if you are really concerned go have it checked.” At this point I was in an inconsolable panic. If it’s nothing then why do I have to go get it checked?! (I have developed an aversion to going to the doctor). I then read your story from Grace Through Uncertainty course probably ten times. You found the lump. You panicked. But once the panic lifted enough to access your deeper wisdom, you knew it was okay. I can’t tell you how helpful that one email was, Sheryl. It provided me with just enough calm to drop down into my own body and access my inner knowingness. I knew it was okay, too. And when I went to get it checked out, it was confirmed: all was well."
