Welcome to The Light Within: A Guided Course For Widows
The Light within: a guided course for widows
As a 28-year-old widow with five young kids and a murder trial looming, I spent countless moments in the fog. I felt alone and trapped in a story I did not choose. I didn’t know how to move forward, and, in many ways, I was stuck. I felt a loss of community, the pain of losing my spouse, the heartache of parenting alone, and I had a longing to know I wasn't alone. I searched for answers and spent so many hours seeking connection to others who had been where I have been.
I created this course to offer tools and ideas for fellow widows who feel just like I felt—stuck in the fog. I know it will give hope, and help you feel a sense of connection. I know it will give you options beyond feeling stuck, and help you find freedom from the darkness and pain of feeling trapped in widowhood.
The course consists of over 4 hours of videos that are broken down into small sections. Each video corresponds to a section in the workbook to address each new concept to help you implement and brainstorm how it looks in your healing. Each section was designed to help you remember your truths to empower you to start moving forward with courage and strength.
With each class prerecorded, it allows you to pace yourself and move to the next video and section when you are ready. Each step will bring you tools and applications to help you live life with purpose, truth, and joy.
The course will include lifetime access to all videos and the step-by-step workbook.
I created each section to help you understand your grief from different angles and create your own personal plans for application in your every day life.
I know this course will bring you light and help you be guided to your next steps in life. Your story isn't over. Today still has purpose, and I know as you spend time healing the past, making a personal plan for your future, and finding peace in where you are right now, you will be able to see more clearly that there are still going to be many more amazing tomorrows.
Thank you for joining me here! I am humbled to walk with you down this path and excited to watch you create the plan that inspires you to move forward and heal. I can’t wait to see you soon!
Here is what some of our friends have said after finishing the widow course:

This course made me realize that the painful dialogue in my head is not truth at all but the adversary trying to convince me of things to keep me in my hurt. I honestly felt like I took something away from each section and feel like in time I can go back and re-look at some things I am not ready to conquer yet.
It was amazing and such a game changer for me! Ashlee was amazing at posing really insightful questions to help identify thoughts and emotions and getting to the reason why we sometimes feel or think the way we do! I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to take this course! It truly helped me untangle some of the misconceptions and painful thoughts I have been reliving over and over. I am grateful for the challenging questions that helped me realize what I need to work on, and just as important, things I am doing well at! This journey is lifelong and having tools and resources to help as our grief evolves with time is amazing! Ashlee, keep being the light you are and reaching for those of us constantly joining you on this path of widowhood! There is strength in knowing we are not alone. Thank you for sharing your experiences and gifts with all of us!

I loved that this course felt so personal, it was like I was sitting across from Ashlee working through each section. She made it really feel like it was just her and me.
I loved the workbook and that it followed along each video. I liked how she shares application ideas like keeping a pad of paper and pen by my bedside to write down impressions, thoughts, and dreams.
This course is amazing and is going to help so many. I loved all of it. ❤️❤️❤️
Ashlee Boyson has a unique ability to share her personal experience as a widow along with her invaluable insights in her course “The Light Within-A guided course for widows”. In the course there are thought provoking questions that have helped me gain a new perspective and new tools to navigate my widow journey. I will continue to use the course material and writing prompts to work through this ever changing emotional rollercoaster we call widowhood. Thank you Ashlee for caring enough to put your heart and soul into this labor of love. -Serena J (Texas)
