Look for Me in the Stars is a 40 day online program designed to provide support, transformation, peace and comfort in times of death, grief, sorrow and loss.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi! I’m Maureen Walsh. I’m a visual artist, healing arts therapist and a yoga + meditation teacher. I’ve travelled the world on my own personal journey, studying with spiritual masters, healing practitioners and talented artisans on a quest to learn, explore and find inner peace and joy.

This quest to uncover the beauty in the world was fueled by my lifelong battle with grief. When I was a teenager I lost my mom to cancer and then 5 years ago, I lost my father to the same disease. I know what it’s like to lose someone you love and not know how to process the grief or how to move forward. After many years of despair, I began to find peace through meditation, yoga and the creative arts. These practices combined completely changed my outlook on life and death and shifted my relationship to grief and loss. I found how transformative it is when you welcome joyful practices and beautiful sounds and visions into your daily life. 

This is what I plan to do in this program. I've created a 40-day program that consists of daily yoga + meditation practices and a manual (with various creative exercises, art and poetry) to specifically aid those in various stages of grief and loss. I will be collaborating with several different amazing artists, teachers and musicians who will bring their talents and energies to the program in various audio and visual ways. They each have had their own experience with grief and will also share their personal stories. The program is super collaborative, vibrant and alive!

As a supporter, you will receive early access to the completed program and materials, which you can use for yourself or gift to a loved one. I also offer rewards of meditation practices, sound healings, and handmade artwork. I will provide digital links to the videos which can be easily accessed on computer or smartphone. Each day you will receive some facet of the program, either a yoga/meditation video, a lesson, or an assignment, or what I call a gift. I see the program as a treasure box of various items intended to lead you into the light.

For top level supporters, you will also receive an individually-designed one-on-one session with me (either online or in person) sometime during the program. This could consist of a cranio-sacral session, a personal meditation or yoga class, or a one-on-one art lesson, depending on your interests.

I wish I had something like this 20 years ago when I was completely lost and navigating my way through grief. Through these practices I have found such freedom and acceptance and it's my deepest wish to share this with you. Please join me in creating this special program, a true celebration of life and death.

Maureen Walsh is an international artist, healer and teacher. She has been studying yoga and meditation for the last twelve years. She is a certified yoga instructor (with over 600 hours of yoga alliance accredited trainings) and a cranio-sacral therapist. She’s traveled extensively around the world to study yoga, healing and art.

LOOK FOR ME IN THE STARS

THE PROGRAM: A 40 DAY ONLINE HEALING JOURNEY

  • Daily yoga + meditation practices (video and audio)
  • Stress release exercises 
  • Beautiful and uplifting art + poetry + music 
  • Sound meditation journeys 
  • A workbook filled with practices, art, creative exercises, insights on life + death and thoughtful writing prompts (available in PDF and printed form)
  • Access to a private Facebook group where you can connect with like-minded individuals

This program is open to absolutely everyone. No previous yoga or meditation experience is necessary. 

There is no loss too great or too small. Unprocessed grief can show up in the strangest ways at the most surprising times. This program will teach you to connect to the deepest part of your being and release what is no longer serving you. Begin to shift the way you feel about loss and connect to your loved ones (or whatever has been lost) in new and refreshing ways. 

This is not a substitute for medical attention. This is a supportive program that can be used along side any form of medical treatment.
