Bio: Georgena Eggleston, MA
Known as The Grief Guide for those Touched by Suicide™, Georgena Eggleston, MA is a highly regarded author, speaker and grief trauma specialist.
In just 3 years, Georgena buried her brother, father-in-law, mother, father, and teenage son. She lost both her brother and 15-year-old son to suicide. This series of events caused Georgena to pursue deep personal work to release the grip of grief, embrace curiosity and wonder, truly achieve recovery, and live a joyful, purposeful life.
In fact, Georgena’s extensive study led to a new awareness – an aspect of grief no one talks about – that grief lives within the body.
Today, Georgena teaches mindful grieving and intentional mourning, so people have the tools to move beyond their grief. They discover the gifts in grief, emerging stronger and happier. As a Grief Guide, she supports those who are grieving – guiding them to recovery, enabling them to move from feeling shattered to radiant living.
Georgena’s lengthy career experience as a certified speech-language pathologist is the bedrock of her deep-listening and clear communication skills, which resonate with her clients and audience members. Georgena believes that to be heard and understood is a basic need of all human beings, no matter where they are in their life.
As a Licensed Spiritual Practitioner, she educates her clients to embrace a new belief. Georgena creates the sacred container for clients to tell their story safely as she is led to discern the limiting beliefs that are keeping them in a place they no longer want to live. Awareness is curative, so new beliefs are then anchored with an affirmative prayer treatment.
A Certified Rubenfeld Synergist®, Georgena is able to listen to the grief held in the body, and guide clients to release it. The Rubenfeld Synergy Method® (RSM) offers a powerful way to tap into inner resources for deep healing and personal growth. A holistic approach that combines gentle touch, talk and compassionate listening, RSM uses the body as a doorway into the Self. Georgena’s clients leave her sessions feeling different in their body – they feel lighter and often pain-free and deeply grounded in relaxation. And they are a step closer to recovery.
Georgena has been a featured speaker for a wide variety of audiences and on radio and TV programs. She has contributed articles to newspapers and Science of Mind magazine. Plus, she is a contributing author of the book You Make Difference: 50 Heart-Centered Entrepreneurs Share Their Stories of Inspiration and Transformation.
Georgena’s latest book, A New Mourning: Discovering the Gifts in Grief, reveals the power of grief to re-invent yourself through self-care tools, by deeply listening to your embodied grief, and by creating a new relationship with your departed loved one through discovery, curiosity, and wonder. As the “new sympathy card,” A New Mourning fills the need we all have to “do something” or “say the right thing” to a grieving person. By gifting this powerful book to a grieving friend or family member, you are giving them a gift of love and supporting them long-term.
Georgena is the mother of 2 sons and loves yoga and flower arranging. She lives in Portland, Oregon, and often travels nationally for speaking and book-signing engagements.
“My loss and grief took a toll for two years before I found Georgena. She is not only a teacher of practical, tested tools, she is a gentle strong guide. What sets her apart from anyone I have worked with during difficult times is her genuine and heartfelt generosity. Georgena knows how to “be there” for someone in need. She has “been there” herself.””
