Meet Shanti Vani

Certified Grief Recovery Method Specialist

The long history of losses in my family goes back many generations. My mother's great grandfather, George Granville Hardy, left his wife and six children in New Hampshire to fight against slavery in the Civil War. He died in New Orleans on June 22, 1863. No one knows the pain he, his disabled wife and children went through, but I have come to realize that unresolved grief is passed down from generation to generation. I am working to break the cycle and help others do the same.

Between 2013 and 2018, seven of my family members died. They were two young great grandsons, both parents, my daughter Naomi, a cousin's husband and my older sister, who was murdered in Jamaica.

My grief was complicated. The same year Naomi died, I moved in with Mom as her primary care giver as she went deeper into Alzheimer's disease. "Be strong for others" became a way of life. But my sister gave me trouble and it was very difficult to manage everything and "be strong".


The Grief Recovery Method training gave me tools to help myself and other people suffering with grief. Now I am determined to help as many grievers as possible.
