The more awareness and tools for wellbeing we have ahead of time, the more choices we have when responding to death.
Contrary to popular belief, struggling with grief is not inevitable after someone we love dies. Various studies over the past fifteen years point us in the direction of tools and perspectives that contribute to emotional health and wellbeing after the death of a loved one.
In this workshop, we will consider how to go beyond the cultural idea that “grieving” is the only way through or forward. We’ll explore research findings and I’ll share my own experiences that support being more centered and resilient when death enters our lives. Which life skills can better support us as we adjust to the physical death of those we care about? What can we be aware of before someone we love dies that may make our experience more easeful and life-affirming?
Whether you’ve already navigated the deaths of many loved ones over the years, or whether you have not yet experienced a significant death in your life, I invite you to reimagine grief and what is possible.
