Healing From Grief And Loss- The Importance Of Being In The Present Moment
I first met Emil Caschetta in the fall of 2012 when he joined my very first A Course in Miracles (ACIM) group which I facilitated for about a year. Emil was a regular at these classes and we continued to stay in touch even when the class disbanded.
Emil loved to share and was always an active participant in all of the classes. I learned that Emil had lost his wife a few years ago. This incident became a catalyst for this spiritual path. This led him to read many books from different spiritual traditions and also enroll in the School of Practical Philosophy and begin a daily practice of meditation.
Very quickly I realized that Emil was a wonderful teacher along with being a motivated learner. One thing that I really began to appreciate about Emil was his honesty in his sharing and also teaching only that which he knew from his own experience, often offering sage advice that was also very practical.
I have been inspired to watch Emil heal from his wife’s loss. He has been amazingly skillful at using his spiritual practice to help him move through his feelings of guilt, anger and sadness and find a place of grace, joy and peaceful acceptance. He always teaches about being in the present moment- regardless of what it may look like- rain or shine. And he demonstrated this even when we were filming this video. His interview was the very first one I did for this website and as my friend Molly and I tried to figure out some technical camera details, Emil chose to use his time wisely- doing what he enjoys most- spending time in meditation.
Enjoy this talk with Emil as he shares more about his journey.
