Hello my beautiful sister.
I see you in this pain and I know what this feels like. It’s okay that it hurts. There is nothing wrong with you. There is nothing that needs fixing.
There’s no expiry date when your grief is no longer valid. You don’t need to turn your emotions around. You don’t need to become more positive.
I get it, this is agonizing. There have been so many moments when I have wanted my grief to disappear.
But I truly believe that integration of our loss happens when we are honest about our experience. When we see ourselves and our grief clearly, without shame or the pressure to be “better”.
And when we do this in community together, the power of connection between grievers is transformative.
What I think we really need are safe spaces to be, exactly as we are. To tell our stories. To be held. To be told, “Me too”, “You’re not alone,” and “I won’t turn away”.
Rebuilding will happen. And in my experience, it doesn’t begin in one magical moment when we are entirely "healed". It happens within and in-between the devastation. It’s all one big messy, murky, wild experience of painful growth and change. And if we’re honest about our experience, that’s when we rebuild our lives authentically.
We all have an internal wisdom.
We are each our own grief expert.
We don’t need pressure and we don’t need to be fixed.
We need connection.
We need to be heard.
We need to be seen.
Exactly as we are.
There is nothing wrong with you. You’re not broken. You’re grieving.
Grief can make you feel both exquisitely, insignificantly small and unbearably large all at once.
It can show you the darkest parts of yourself at the same time as uncovering the bits you can’t believe how much you love.
It’s about losing everything in a moment.
How the floor opens up in front of you and how it doesn’t entirely close back up again. And how you learn to live with that opening, just beyond your fingertips.
It’s about how the beginning is the end is the beginning. And how life and grief are full of cycles, circling around and overtop of one another.
Rebuilding happens within our grief. Life happens alongside loss. There is nothing to overcome.
This is being here. And being human. This is love.
I created I See You, Sister because I wanted to build a group container where our grief can be examined in a gentle and non-judgmental environment. A grief-literate space where we can each reconnect to our own rhythm in this after-life. Together.JOIN THE AUTUMN 2023 COHORT HERE

What are past participants of “I See You, Sister” saying?
“When Mira opened up her group, ‘I See You Sister’, I knew I wanted to join right away. Being a part of a group of women who have experienced the same kind of loss has validated my experience and helped me feel supported. Mira is a wonderful kind, gentle person who brings so much knowledge and experience in grief. She was so good at sharing and teaching us somatic practices and I felt very safe with her, allowing me to open up and be truly honest and vulnerable. ‘I See You, Sister’ is a comfort each week, knowing I can login, talk, listen and be with others who understand what I am going through. I trust Mira so much and I honestly couldn’t imagine taking anything like this group from someone else. I would recommend Mira to anyone who is living with grief. Her knowledge, kindness and support has helped me tremendously on my journey.”
“I decided to join ‘I See You, Sister’, so that I could be in a community of grievers and learn more about how to live with my grief and also support my devastated kids. I kept looking to therapists and other professionals to help me but really, I needed other people riding the same waves. ‘I See You, Sister’ has been a support I desperately needed. The programming is informative and serves as a platform for my favorite part - listening to everyone's stories. We start each session with a meditation and then a check in, where we each share what is going on with us. It makes me feel less alone in the world and I find inspiration in the other women and our conversations. It is hard to be a younger widow in a world of couples. Our stuff is just different and everyone in the group ‘gets it’. I look forward to our sessions and really, really hope we can maintain contact. I care about the other women and Mira. They are my fellow widow travelers. Mira, to say I am grateful for your group is an understatement. I am just filled with awe and gratitude for the opportunity to bear witness to the other women's stories and share mine.”
“Joining ‘I See You, Sister’ has given me the space to be seen and heard. I am part of a community now, I belong. I look forward to the sessions each week. Mira holds space for each of us and we listen and contribute. It is striking that although each of us has a different story and circumstance, there are so many commonalities. We understand and support each other under Mira’s facilitation. Mira facilitates in a gentle way and bears witness to our lives. She is unselfish with her moderation of the group. The topics she has chosen for each session are relevant, real, and thought provoking. Our feelings and our grief are validated and explored. As a result of joining this group, I have gained community and I value each of my fellow widows. I feel seen and no longer feel isolated. If you are widowed, I would highly recommend joining Mira’s group. ‘I See You, Sister’ has made such a positive impact on how I carry my grief and my continuing love for my husband moving forward.”
“The ‘I See You, Sister’ group sessions and materials were so well organized. I liked that there was a different topic each week and I enjoyed starting each session with a mindfulness meditation. I felt that I had the space to participate each session and was listened to – but I never felt pressured to contribute if I preferred to be quieter one week. From Mira’s group I got a sense of community. The women in the group were very kind, supportive, comforting, and uplifting. Everyone’s story is so different but the trauma we have all experienced and share is the same. It was comforting to share this experience with other people. Grief is lonely and now, I don't feel as alone in my grief. I strongly recommend this group to others.”
