“Ligia’s workshop on transforming grief was exquisite. From the moment we began, she engaged everyone gently and artfully in sharing our own experiences with loss of all kinds. She made our sharing safe by first sharing her own story of the loss of her father. Her warmth and compassion, combined with her depth of experience and knowledge, allowed her to respond to each participant beautifully and to use each human story as a building block to understanding her 11 principles of transforming grief and loss. Often, I find that CEU workshops are dry and devoid of connection. The information may be fantastic, but the process isn’t. Not true at all with Ligia’s workshop. I learned an enormous amount that will help me professionally and personally. And, I enjoyed the warmth and connection that Ligia created amongst all of us. Ligia is truly a fantastic person and presenter. It was a great privilege to attend her workshop. “ -Candace Blase, Art Therapist
“I recently attended Ligia Houben’s one-day seminar: “Transforming Grief and Loss.” It was absolutely amazing! Not only was it tremendously insightful, it gave me the practical tools that I needed to approach my work as a Chaplain and Bereavement Counselor much more effectively. I have attended many seminars before that have helped me. However, Ligia’s training, instructing, and approach was powerful and tops them all! It was engaging, lively, practical and heartwarming. I walked away better equipped to make a difference in the lives of others, while at the same time I experienced some of my own healing from my personal journey with grief! Thank you Ligia, you are an amazing person and teacher!” -Chaplain David Guerrero, M.Div, BCC, Bereavement Counselor
