"You could think of grief as a sacred passage. You are torn from the life you knew before. You are not who you were, and you are not yet who you will become. Like everything else, you are changing. You are, in a very real way, between identities. This experience—profoundly different for each of us—is confusing, agonizing, and potentially life-transforming."

Grief is alive in us more and more, here on Earth these days. We all feel alone, shocked, confused, and heartbroken by the losses we have experienced in recent times. This discussion will offer resources for building resilience and holding grief, so that we are able to connect more deeply to ourselves and to one another and to find meaning in the midst of loss.

“Wise and sensitive... this guide to working with grief is a treasure.”

~ Joan Halifax

“As clear as a needed glass of water in the desert. I cannot think of a better companion for our current time.”

~ Katy Butler
