    Coping with Loss with Anna Seewald

    Coping with Loss with Anna Seewald

    Warning: 
    Because of the subject matter: death, loss, grief and the emotional nature of the conversation, this episode might be potentially triggering.
    Please assess your own physiological state, if you're ready to consume such content and be gentle to yourself.
    Listener description is advised. 
    In this episode Anna talks about the sudden death of her only living parent, her dad.
    Kristy Lauricella, who is Anna’s dear friend and a palliative care social worker, held space for her so that she can share the news of the passing of her dad with you, what she is going through right now and how she is copying with her loss and what she is thinking about end of life as an adult.
    As well as, what an influential person her dad was for her in becoming her authentic self and doing the work she is doing today. 
    Kristy was one of the facilitators at the Authentic Parenting LIVE event in 2019 and she has also appeared on the podcast. 
    Check out her thought-provoking conversation with Anna called Why We Need to Connect More, which striked a chord with many. 
    Some key points in this conversation: 
    Grief needs to be witnessed Grieving is an individual process  Having a social support is vital in healing Allow feelings to be, feel them, stay with them, and move through them whenever they arise  Taking care of yourself will go along the way  Tips for talking to kids about death and losing loved ones, no BS Embrace the mystery of life, live your life well to honor the dead and legacy We hope by hearing her personal story you can find universal themes and value for yourself as loss and grief for many have been real issues in the past year.

Mama from MA ,

Incredible Resource!

I just discovered Authentic Parenting and wish I had known of its existence when I first began my parenting journey almost 5 years ago. In just a short time I feel more empowered and confident in my very important role as “parent”. Within each episode I find that I am learning valuable information that I can apply to my interactions with my children or to heal my own attachment wounds. Through Anna’s interviews with amazing experts and guests and her own shared profound wisdom, this is a podcast that can surely act as a guide on you embark on the transformational journey of parenting.
