Cocoon: A Safe Place for Dramatic Change

This program examines the vulnerability of helplessness. What does helplessness look like? What does it feel like? How does it get disguised? What can we do about it? Transitions will also be explored. Transitions can be scary and filled with helplessness because we are faced with fears and unknowns. In these lessons we’re going to explore a process called “Creative Cocooning” – a way to navigate the helplessness that occurs during transitions.

Course Instructor

Deborah Grassman


Few people have been with 10,000 dying veterans; Deborah Grassman is one VA hospice Nurse Practitioner who has. Dying veterans taught her lessons about how to attain personal peace. Ironically, those lessons came from people who had been trained for war! As a result, a phenomenon known as “Soul Injury” has now emerged as a relevant healthcare issue for the public. She contends that 10,000 dying veterans have lessons that the rest of us need to learn! Deborah is the author of two books, Peace at Last and The Hero Within. She is a contributing author for four textbooks, has 25 published articles, and there are 5 documentary films featuring her work.
