Lesbian LOVE 301:

Wash Your Heart for New LOVE

A step-by-step guided journey to grieve the past

and create space in your heart for new LOVE


Andrea’s course has given me the opportunity to properly allow the grieving of the recent loss of a long-term relationship. I often thought that the only way to tackle the complex feelings of grief was to “deal with it”—in other words—to suppress and neatly pack them in a box and never open it again.

Andrea’s course takes the unique approach of combining spiritual practices (to enable one to stay in the present), and practical approaches such as containment and body care. The combination makes the course unique by fully addressing the needs of the heart-mind, body and spirit.

The course was well-paced with gentle steps to acknowledge, understand, allow, and feel through various issues related to grief. I did follow the steps through the course, however, I also realized that grief is not a linear process. The course fully allows many of the feelings to be “worked through,” instead of “rushed through.” The various ideas and approaches are well-integrated to allow this non-linear process.

The course material, with its practical and spiritual exercises, very informative readings, quotes and poetry, works very well in engaging the self in diverse ways.

This Powerful Curriculum Was Developed Over 25 Years

Women have told me that it is hard for them to move on when they have wounds from a past relationship. So I have organized a compassionate and skilful course to help you put the past behind you to welcome a new and loving relationship that is based on trust and joy.

Lesbian LOVE 301 is based on curriculum developed over 25 years at New Directions, a not-for-profit women’s organization here in Toronto that ran for 25 years, until it closed three years ago due to lack of funding.

New Directions was a beautiful organization committed to working for economic and social change which would enhance women’s abilities to make successful transitions and take control of their lives. They respected and valued the ability of women to help themselves and each other.

They were committed to providing high quality programs by ensuring that they listened to, understood, and responded to the needs of women facing transitions and embarking on new directions.

New Directions developed grief group courses grounded in their core values over the 25 years they were open – courses that guided women through a compassionate, safe and healthy grieving process – so they can come out whole on the other side.

I know how powerful their content is because I went through their LGBT Women’s Grief group in early 2004 to work through my loss of a 10-year relationship with a woman. It really helped me to slow down and feel what had happened. I was kind of floating above the ground, coping, up until I went through their LGBT grief group.

I decided to reach out to Nancy Emkin, who ran the LGBT group that I took all those years ago, to ask if I could use New Direction’s material for this LGBT women’s grief Tele-course. She ran the idea by the former president of their Board, and I received their blessing to present their material through this new format – they are REALLY happy to see their content being used again!

And I am happy to carry on their beautiful legacy of helping women heal from the wounds of a past relationship. This material is powerful, and it is my pleasure to offer it to you to empower you to heal and make your heart ready to receive True LOVE and lasting LOVE.
