Redefine Your Grief • Exit the Waiting Room • Reenter Your New Life
After Invisible Loss
After Invisible Loss
“This class provided me (and my brain) strategies, understanding and self awareness not only about how to navigate grief but how to live and love again in a purposeful and joyful life.”~ Colleen Mulder
When I started this work in 2010, I never imagined I would be teaching this particular type of Life Reentry® class. Something unexpected happened during these past ten years, as I taught the Life Reentry® Model to thousands of people who’ve suffered terrible and unspeakable tragedies. I had blindly assumed, like everyone else, that the big and traditional losses (death, divorce, etc.) were the only losses that were difficult to come back from. I have spent this last decade passionately supporting thousands with these losses and tragedies reenter life.
While doing that, I recognized a very clear thread through everyone’s experiences ~ when a person was getting back to living life, moving through the grief of these big and traditional losses, something invisible and unspoken would pull them back and keep them stuck.
Life Reentry® was founded on the idea that spending time in learning how to live again after loss was equally important as spending time in mourning. Our mission is to dispel myths of eternal grief, and provides a system for those coping with loss to redefine themselves and rediscover their joy. To help people address feelings of fear about the future and overcome guilt about experiencing happiness in the face of that loss, the brain is wired with all of the mechanisms necessary to complete this journey.
Fourteen years ago, I lost my thirty-five-year-old husband to cancer, leaving me with two young girls to raise. I felt lost, frustrated, and alienated by our culture’s outdated “time heals all wounds” approach to grieving. Drawing on my training as a grief counselor and my personal quest to understand Neuroscience, I developed a new active approach to not only grieving a loved one but living well after. The five-step Life Reentry® Model is based on recruiting our biology into the healing process. I have helped countless people break out of what I coined the Waiting Room of grief into a new paradigm of post loss recovery, based on the science of neuroplasticity.
After spending the last ten years teaching and educating hundreds of thousands of bereaved people I made the discovery that it wasn’t the traditional loss of death that kept the bereaved and non-bereaved people in a repetitive cycle of grief, but the invisible, non-validated and untold losses from their earlier chapters of their lives.
My mission is to bring forth a new way of speaking about and embracing loss but also to help our communities understand that living after loss is equally important as grieving. Clinical studies of The Life Reentry® Model are underway by leading scientists at the Kessler Foundation. We are changing the way that people not only grieve, but live after loss.
What I uncovered was the multitude of Invisible Losses that kept pulling people back into, and staying stuck in the Waiting Room.
I discovered an undercover world of grief. What plagued my class participants and emotionally imprisoned them long term more than anything were these invisible, mistakenly perceived smaller experiences that are not traditionally considered significant. These are the losses that society fails to recognize, mirror back, or validate.
Instead, we are left confused, alone, and ashamed of what we hide inside of us while at the same time living in a world that appears whole, standing in front of our brokenness.
When everything looks the same on the outside, yet everything has changed on the inside, we break. We break in half. This is the duality of loss. The invisible grief narrative is not just dismissed or overlooked. I wish It was that simple. It is rather unseen, almost like a ghost. These invisible LOSSES can often accompany cataclysmic events but sometimes they find us without any obvious reason.
The list of invisible losses is so long that it would fill many pages. These are the undetectable cataclysms we experience and live with every day. The moments that cause us to feel abandoned, unsafe, disappointed, isolated, afraid and so much more. This daily life shadows the scariests monsters of our inner world. Aging in an ageless world, being diagnosed with a disease that nobody can see. Losing one’s job, losing a relationship. You unbecome.
These invisible losses are so fatal to our lives that if we knew the truth we would halt the infinite loop of routine on its tracks so we could grasp the desperation millions of people live with.
Before we can unleash ourselves out of the waiting room, or even discover the caves in which we have been enclosed, we must redefine grief.
During this 8 week course, we will courageously discuss the tragic loss of identity, the loss of innocence, childhood experiences, relationships, aging, rejection, abandonment, loneliness, and so much more. We will introduce you to a new life. A life that is understood, processed, validated, and shared.

The Life Reentry® Model begins with the individual stuck between two worlds. This is a place we call The Waiting Room—a psychological space one retreats to after great loss. It is a gap between lives—the life that has been forced into the past by grief and loss, and the new life that has yet to begin. The Waiting Room is not a physical place, but rather a mindset. It’s a holding pattern—safe, comfortable, but inhibitory. It keeps one out of danger, and out of life. There is no going back to the person you were before loss. There is only going forward. Being stuck in the in between, in the Waiting Room, is where we suffer, play small, and repeat old patterns and behaviors that stop us from not just surviving but from thriving in our new life.
This is an 8-week virtual, highly interactive and immersive group program.
You will be welcomed into a private, online community where you will receive daily, personalized support from me directly. I no longer offer individual private coaching, so this is the best way to work with me as I guide you through the 5 stages of the Life Reentry® Model. I walk with you every step of the way and connect directly with you daily in our online community. I am able to support you to look at the puzzle pieces of your life in a way you have never looked at them before. Then, using The Life Reentry® Model, we put them back together to create your new life.

“If all this class gave me was the hope that there was a way out of being stuck in grief, it would have been enough. But throughout our time, I watched myself and my classmates learn and see the possibility of being whole again, in spite of the holes in their hearts. Forever grateful for Christina and her team, for their work, spirit, and endless support.” ~ Jessica Kupferman

What is the financial investment for Life Reentry After Invisible Loss?
You can join this 8-week virtual, highly interactive and immersive group program for $497 USD.
How much time should I allocate weekly?
Each weekly video call is approximately 60 to 90 minutes
Some weeks the time needed to complete the daily/weekly homework is more than others. On average, I encourage you to allocate 30 to 60 minutes per day in addition to attending the weekly calls.
How much access do I get to Christina?
While this is not private, one on one coaching, it’s the next best thing. Christina connects directly with each participant in the private online community on a daily basis. Providing thoughtful feedback, insights, and support. Plus, you’ll connect with Christina and the group weekly on a live video call.
How long since my loss do you recommend this course?
The short answer is that it depends. Some people do this class 2 to 3 years post loss and some 5, 10 or many more years later. While others have done it 6 months after. It is somewhat of an individual decision. In general, the best time for Life Reentry after a specific and traditional loss tends to be a couple of years.
It’s important to note that this class is also about your whole life and everything that has happened that has not been seen and validated. But if you don’t fall into the traditional loss category, this is right for you if you feel stuck and not alive enough in your life, no matter your age.
** If you are uncertain if this is the right course for you please do not hesitate to reach out to Christina to figure it out together.
I haven’t lost anyone or had a “big” loss, is this course still for me?
YES! This course and the Life Reentry® Model is truly for everyone feeling stuck in their lives or patterns of thought and behavior. We have all had many invisible losses throughout our lives, and until we bring them out into the light and allow them to be seen and acknowledged, we will never truly know ourselves or be able to create the life we desire.
What if I can’t attend the live video calls?
Each of the 8 weekly calls are recorded so you can watch the recording at a time that is convenient to you, or listen to it as many times as you like to fully integrate your learning.
What is your refund policy?
A full refund will be provided, at the participant’s written request within the first 7 days of the course beginning. After March 23rd, 2021 no refunds will be given.
