With much reluctance and curiosity, I joined a writing class to help express and process grief. “Invisible Ink” was such a healing gift especially during the first anniversary of Fritz’s death. Before starting the class, I wasn’t sure I would -or could- stay but by our last session, I was sad to leave. Our guide was Kathy Curtis who authored the book on which the class is based and she’s an absolute gem. Kathy’s energy put me at ease and her experience helped my classmates and I through some difficult healing work. Not only was the writing beneficial but being in community with other grieving people was very affirming. The duality of pain and beauty was ever present as our class shared stories, introduced our loved ones, meditated together and poured over our tear-stained journals.
Whether your person died last month or a dozen years ago, this class is absolutely worth your time and the courage to walk in the door.

I have referred many of my grief clients to your programs. I feel confident referring them because I have been through it, myself. Invisible Ink is a very healing process.
LILIANE CARROLL MS, MHC, grief counselor
I have used your course with clients, and found they did not need to continue after 3-4 weeks. I like the course and think it is very helpful for grief.

"Invisible Ink" is a pathway to gently explore, slowly walk, deeply breathe and write your truth toward healing from the ebb and flow of grief.
EMILY, workshop participant
Kathy Curtis' experience with her mother mirrors the reality I see every day, and will help ease the concerns and anxieties most people feel about dying. Reading "Invisible Ink" will be invaluable to patients before they die, and to their caregivers, as well.

I highly recommend this course to anyone saddened and weighed down with grief. I have already told many people about it and hope they contact you.

Kathy Curtis' "Invisible Ink" is the just tip of the iceberg. She is all this wonderful book and more. I have never seen anyone work with such loving and care-filled magic to connect the mind with the body in health matters as well as grief-related issues. She uses seemingly elegant simplicity that is profound and far-reaching and ultimately amazingly accurate and helpful.

My wife and I took this workshop and it did help. It offers encouragement to embrace your loss so you can deal with it straight. Writing does this for me. Feelings and thoughts that are whirling around in my head and heart are put on paper once and for all so I can actually make sense of this loss. It does bring me closer to my brother who died Feb. 4, 2013.
KEVIN, workshop participant
After I read "Invisible Ink," I asked my mom to read it. And we've discussed the potential for our future communication! There is a comfort in that. But even better is that we got to share a meaningful conversation about life and death; all thanks to Kathy's insightful book.
Writing letters to my loved one to help heal my grief has been an amazing journey. Emotionally, the entire course opened doors and ways for me to sit with the sadness in my heart and write my heart out. Keeping our loved ones alive in thought and spirit through communicating with them has been a heart-felt healing journey for me. Thank You.

My brother Jack died 9 years ago on Halloween and I am feeling the sadness still. It is helping me to put things on paper. Thank you.
KATHLEEN, online course participant
The program helped me to recognize feelings and emotions that have been difficult, but are in need of healing. I've experienced comfort and a release of emotional pain. The program was similar to a massage for emotions of grief - after working on them, there is a release and I feel better.

I love Invisible Ink... I went to this group after Andrew's passing. Excellent!!
MARILYN SUE, workshop participant
This class was very eye opening and I’d recommend it to absolutely anyone going through grief.
EMILY, workshop participant
This program has shown me that you don’t know what you might find helpful in your grief journey. I’m now willing to experience a variety of ways to work through this.
PATRICE, workshop participant
Kathy was a fantastic facilitator for this program. She is compassionate, calming, affirming, understanding and caring. I haven’t been to many grief programs, but this was helpful in so many ways. It was a different approach that I have not experienced before, and should be expanded on.
KARLA, workshop participant
This was a wonderful workshop and a very healing experience. I highly recommend it. Please know how powerful this approach to grief was - I feel writing brought us closer to our love ones that have passed.
MARY, workshop participant
Invisible Ink aids in helping the bereaved open up, where otherwise they would not. This program is very beneficial in the grieving process.
MICHELLE, workshop participant
I felt like you were describing my mom. I miss her every day. Thank you - your words are beautiful and soothing.
I think what moves me most about this collection of memories and letters is the sweetness that winds its way through both of your voices — you reaching out into the void with openness and trust and then your mother sweetly reaching back with compassion and humor. You have touched on a profound mystery in this book.
This book will appeal to the DYING.
This is an incredible workshop! My feelings are that "Invisible Ink" helped me more than anything else in the grief process of losing my husband of 25 years to cancer. As much as this loss changed my life, Invisible Ink changed it too: and in a miraculous way!
ANDREA, workshop participant
I have found peace in my heart. I was afraid it wasn't attainable before coming to this class.
LINDA, workshop participant
I found the course very helpful and surprising in some ways, in how it helped me realize what was already inside me, but needed help getting out, to be heard. My husband died over four years ago, so I have already gone through much of my grief and made good progress. But the part I was still dealing with, was moving forward in my life, my new life. The course directed me enough, especially with the meditations, to help me reach my inner self and find the learning I needed, to move on. Thank you!
