GRIEF BLOOMS FROM THE HEART is a far reaching inclusive and affirming, non-denominational ministry dedicated to strengthen emotional well-being.


The ministry's director, Minister Newman Millhollon-Turner, is a Grief Coach Specialist certified in The Grief Recovery Method® and a Hairstylist.


Newman coaches one-to-one on The Grief Recovery Method® 7-Week Action Challenge. The method addresses lingering effects of grief events, teaching the tools and actions that honor the emotional trauma of loss and positions grief in its rightful, helpful place.


Participants are offered a series of safe, private interactive sessions on a HIPAA-compliant and HITRUST certified platform.

Learn how you can recover from the shadowing, painful effects caused by loss and restore helpful grief back to its rightful, healing place in your life.


  • This is not a religious solution. It does not interfere with or affect religious beliefs.

  • This is not an intervention approach. Individuals in therapy and /or taking medications need to be referred by their Therapist and/or Doctor.

  • This is not for everyone. It requires commitment and determination to follow through. When you're ready, it works! 

  • This is not a motivational program. It does not aim to offer a generalized solution that might fit some.

THE GRIEF RECOVERY METHOD® is an evidenced based program with over 40 years backed by real results. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken the class to learn how to address and stop the shadowing effects of emotional hurt caused by grief events. It is both educational and transformational.

The Grief Recovery Method® (GRM) provides the knowledge to confidently understand how to navigate the complexities of grief.


The reason I became a GRM Specialist is to help others. The Grief Recovery Method® was nothing short of life-changing for me.


It helped me to:

  • identify unhealthy mental patterns

  • trace the patterns to their roots

  • fully express the underlying emotions

  • find greater compassion and forgiveness, and

  • align my intellect, emotions, and spirit together harmoniously more often.


I highly recommend GRM to anyone, especially if you think you have everything under control.


Why is it so important for me to help others recover from grief ?

I became aware of The Grief Recovery Method® at a place in my life where I realized the status quo wasn’t working. In fact, it was declining the quality of my life. I was struggling with my emotional wellbeing and the feelings about everything around me; happiness and interactions with others. Every day, I noticed common trends that we all seem to struggle with: shame, guilt, trauma, depression, anxiety, low self-worth, heartache, and so on. In trying to figure it out, I discovered the work of two guys, John James and Russell Friedman,


The Grief Recovery Method® came about through their life's experiences with grief. It taught me the tools and actions to take that revealed grief's haunting of my subconscious, including recent events and from long ago.

The personal work I did in the program brought forward the emotional events that needed to be addressed and completed. This helped me to release the clutter of incomplete grief that was shadowing my life, resulting in a revival of renewed daily living.


It has been a freeing experience that I didn’t know was possible. It returned the qualities of the child person I thought I had lost; a loving, trusting, and happy kid, but now with adult experience at 66 and my life's grief in its rightful place!


I am truly thankful for this. It is why I want to help others to experience the Grief Recovery Method®.


~ Newman Millhollon-Turner. Grief Recovery Method Specialist

The hurt experienced from emotional events throughout life causes grief to shadow us. The effects drain wellbeing and liveliness.
The problem is, when the hurt is unattended, the remaining shadowing grief doesn’t just heal and go away. Ignoring it or living with it doesn’t work either.


Grief left unchecked blurs decision making, life becomes more and more difficult. Often, it becomes isolating.

Offering a solution that leads to healing from the shadowing pain caused by loss and change is why I work in grief recovery.

How can you be happy when you don't feel like YOU? Unresolved grief keeps you from being YOU. The best YOU! Thankfully, there is a solution.

The Grief Recovery Method® is an action-based, powerful, directed approach to healing from life's deepest heartbreaks caused by loss and change. Regardless when they happened.

I show you how to heal the hurt caused by grief experiences, regardless when the emotional events happened. You will learn to use the only evidenced based grief-support method proven to uncover, release, and restore aliveness.


You might say, "I've moved on, that's all in the past."

You see, "moving on" is only about adjusting, not healing. Why adjust to the weight of carrying the burden of unresolved grief? There's no happiness in doing that. Discover your emotional truth and become the best YOU!

There are over 40 reasons identified as the cause for why we grieve. Grief is the normal and natural emotional response to change or loss of any kind – death, divorce, moving, financial changes, health changes, relationship changes and on and on… Grief is also the result of unmet hopes, dreams and expectations and the loss of intangible concepts such as safety, trust, security, respect, faith… and hope. Grief is universal.

I teach The Grief Recovery Method® because it is the most comprehensive, evidence based, and effective program proven to help people with broken hearts and devastating loss regardless of when it happened. 

You see, the grief you had from the dawning of your first conscience life experience are stored in your subconscious mind and  influence your conscious thoughts and behaviors.


The only way to halt the effects is to complete what happened that was left undone. If left undone, the effects continue to influence you in your day to day living; behaviors and choices.


The piling-up of incomplete emotions do not go away just because time passes. Instead they drain away your wellbeing and rob you of who you once were.

Healing is not only possible, it's real! As you heal, harmful actions change too.
