Challenge Creation Showcase – Uma Girish

Uma Girish, Author of, Losing Amma, Finding Home: A Memoir About Love, Loss and Life’s Detours

About the Author:  I guide women in midlife who are grieving a loss. Whether they’re dealing with the death of someone they love, the end of a relationship, the loss of a dream, or watching a parent die, they just want to stop hurting and find peace. I help them make peace with their pain so they can finally feel a sense of control over their lives.

I am also an award-winning author of 2 books “Understanding Death: 10 Ways to Find Inner Peace for the Grieving” and a memoir “Losing Amma, Finding Home.” I co-founded the International Grief Council and host a podcast called The Grammar of Grief. Visit me at

Challenge Description

When someone is grieving a loss, no matter the nature of loss, they feel overwhelmed and unfocused. My challenge FROM SORROW TO SERENITY: 21 STEPS FROM GRIEF TO PEACE offers a simple daily tip grievers can use for three weeks. Followed consistently, this can be a roadmap a griever uses to find their way out of the wilderness of loss and back into the realm of serenity.

My challenge is formatted into 3 modules: Body, Mind, and Spirit. For 7 days a week, my challenge participant will focus on one module at a time and take the steps toward inner peace.

Description of the Audience for Your Challenge. Who are they and how will they benefit from your challenge? (Up to 150 words.)
My primary audience is women in midlife who are grieving a loss, no matter the shape, size or form of the loss they’re struggling through.

If followed consistently, the 21 steps will definitely open up a space for peace in a griever’s overwhelmed life. It is a clear map of what to do first and what to do next and next and next over 21 days. Three weeks of a daily practice that nourishes body, mind, and spirit definitely creates shift. They will feel more centered and calm and in control of their lives. These practices can be continued well beyond the time frame of the challenge. When they become a part of daily routine, these practices establish lifelong habits that support well-being.

What have you enjoyed most about the Challenge Creation Experience Program.

“I loved the training D’vorah provided where I understood the process of creating a challenge in a step-by-step format. Being part of a loving and supportive community went a long way in keeping me on track. More than anything, I had so much fun creating this challenge…and I know I will create many more as time goes by.”

      Thank you Kate for your kind words! I so appreciate your comment. Please share the challenge link with people you know who are challenged by grief and loss.

      • I’m going to take your course. It’s free and who doesn’t need support for grief of some sort or other, even if it’s something we don’t acknowledge, which I’m finding is my case. I will share the link. I am thankful for your creating the course and opening it up to people.
