Class Structure
This class meets once a week for an hour and half for six weeks. We will start each session with a few minutes of meditation to quiet the mind and transition into the class mode and to carry this into one’s daily activities to sit quietly for a few minutes each day.

Who should take this class?
Family and friends who are affected by addiction, loss of loved ones due to addiction and those who are interested in reducing the pain of grief and loss through compassionate means.

Teacher: Dr. Manijeh Motaghy – Dr. Motaghy has lost her own son to Opioid addiction and gone through intense periods of being ripped and wiped out by the tornadoes, hurricanes and tsunamis of emotions. Through her own practices of mindfulness, loving-kindness, compassion and a deep desire for happiness she found relief, hope and solace – Out of an immense sense of compassion for the pain of grief, she has developed this and other courses in the Kuroosh Compassionate Recovery Program to help other parents and family members live a sane life after the death of their child.
