Use the practice to grow in yourself
So many styles.
I was feeling stuck in my grief journey. I was struggling to find peace and meaning in my life after my husband died of cancer 4 years after we got married. I had a lot of looped thoughts around past conversations, anxiety, insomnia, restless during the day and a hopeless worry about life. I was looking for a way to make peace with the past, process the trauma from caregiver burnout and rediscover my faith. AmarAtma's approach of mindfulness along with grief coaching helped me to go deep within myself and rediscover my faith. I learned how to forgive myself and others and that's been the most life changing. I was also learned how to shift from my mind to my heart space. I feel at peace with my past, and the conversations in my head that use to bother me have quieted. I have grown and evolved and now look forward to new life experiences. I have gained skills and mindset and mindfulness techniques to go through grief and have confidence to face challenges with courage and strength. If you're stuck in the past, pain, grief, or trauma this coaching will not only heal you, but give you life long skills! AmarAtma is incredible and amazing at this job, I wouldn't change anything!
Initially, it was my work with Covid patients as a nurse. I was really struggling in my day-to-day. I was fatigued and cranky and really had a sense of loss that I couldn’t quite pinpoint. I was tired and hopeless. I had very low self-esteem and everything seemed to bring me down. I wanted to find myself again. I was dealing with a loss of self, which later I identified as unresolved grief. I’m terrible about asking for help or admitting I need it. I was also fearful about being vulnerable. It’s not counseling, it's coaching. It’s not a session about feelings and circumstances, but what we can do to cope and move through our loss. A new and renewed energy, coping skills, a sense of self and a true recognition of what being centered means. I am now rooted in gratitude. I no longer feel the need to judge my actions and am able to participate in self praise. Energy, grounded-ness and improved relationships and grace for myself and for others are a regular experience for me. My recommendation: Do it!! It’s better than anything out there and will change your life if you’ll let it. AmarAtma is truly a gift. I consider myself so lucky to know him. He helped saved me from a deeply dark time of my life!
I’m having a hard time expressing just how incredibly grateful I am for the work AmarAtma does. I stumbled upon an Instagram post of his, about grief, in August of 2021. This was just weeks after my whole world had just fallen apart. I was dealing with the 4 year anniversary of my moms death, my life had spiraled out of control, and I found myself in the lowest place I’ve ever been. I had no idea that I had unresolved grief, but I did know I was miserable.
After reading AmarAtma’s post about grief I requested his free e-book which opened my eyes to just how much grief I was (not) dealing with, and how it was playing a hugely negative role in my life. I felt compelled to reach out for a consultation. I remember feeling so uncomfortable taking that first step, and then feeling so at ease and even excited after the call. I immediately signed up for the 12 week grief program and I can confidently say that decision has changed the trajectory of my life!
I have completed the 12 week grief program and have moved into weekly life coaching with AmarAtma and every single week I see growth and progress in myself. I am forever grateful for the wisdom, compassion and strategies AmarAtma has shared with me and how I’ve been able to turn my life into something worth living again!
I wanted to take a moment to recognize AmarAtma’s skill set and compassion as a grief and life coach.
What began for me was a big emotional tangle with high levels of anxiety. I called how I felt: ”my raggedy Ann stuffing was coming out” after providing nursing care through the COVID-19 pandemic in the Bay Area. I could not find my way back to center and navigating my true north become more difficult.
We began with grief work and he supported me through some very scary emotional unknowns. He of course was very well versed in the roller coaster of emotions I experienced and held my hand throughout the experience (Zoom was perfect!). I am changed. I’m whole. I am resilient. I could not have navigated my journey alone. I’m forever grateful for our work together. If you have any concerns, trust the process and AmarAtma’s gifts. You’ll be blessed for it.
After over a year of working with each other, AmarAtma has been witness to extreme highs and lows within my life and I’m incredibly grateful to have his support throughout all of it. We’ve cultivated ways to overcome and work through anxiety, depression, and other heavy aspects of life, AmarAtma has coached me through lessons in grief work and helped me to better grasp my own healing and as a product learned how to truly experience joy. I look forward to our sessions each week and the lessons that I will get to learn. It’s been one of the biggest wonders in my life to share space with someone who listens, coaches, and loves so authentically all while putting in the own work himself which continues to inspire me. I’ve experienced an immense amount of growth during the course of our time together and because of that gained a deeper appreciation for life. I’m incredibly grateful to have been shown how to process the heartache, dive deep into grief and articulate dreams along with way. I’m constantly surprised and proud of my own growth that’s stemmed from grief work and overall deep diving into self work that has been guided by AmarAtma, I think that this is a tool and practice that can benefit everyones life and I’m so thankful to be able to experience this work. It’s not about getting over all the hard stuff we experience in life but getting through it, releasing pain and shame and feeling more equipped to fully experience the beauty all the pain and joy to come.
After my husband passed, I was looking for new ways to find purpose and joy in my life. His calm presence invited me to share when normally I don't feel comfortable to express. He really makes me feel like I'm the only person he works with! I was so surprised by how a series of simple exercises really moved me to a new space of awareness. He helped me get in tune with how I was feeling. I'm better for it and process my grief. I highly recommend him for grief coaching!
“Before I spoke with Amar Atma, I had just graduated from my integrative medicine fellowship and was wondering what to do next. I was unsure of where to go with this and how to pursue my life’s long mission to help others connect with their meaning and their spiritual health. I was in great need for clarity. Amar Atma kindly offered a coaching session that was transformational for me. He held the space with compassion and helped me see what was holding me back. I gained a different perspective of things and the clarity and inspiration I was looking for. He used my own deeply held values to help me move forward with confidence and a clear understanding of myself and what inspires me. If you are looking for that strong insightful deeper presence to help you transform your life, then Amar Atma is that person!”
