Grief Rituals for Finding Hope and Healing with Amanda Held Opelt • X92 Mind Love ♡ Modern Mindfulness

    • Mental Health

We will learn:


The power of Irish keening for releasing emotions. 
How to deal with fear around loss. 
How to hold presence for grief, whether for yourself or a loved one. 

There’s a huge spectrum for how people deal with grief. But it’s one of those things that I feel like we need a handbook for and we just don’t have one.

We used to gather around to support one another for all major life events. We had collective rituals that helped us feel connected. That gave space to the grieving. That kept life moving when the griever couldn’t yet handle the little things.

So what would that look like today, in the modern world? Today we’re going to explore some of the most helpful grief rituals that are worth bringing back.

Our guest is Amanda Held Opelt. She is an author, speaker, and songwriter. She has spent the last 15 years as a social worker and humanitarian aid worker. And she writes about grief and creativity, and believes in the power of community, ritual, and shared stories to heal even our deepest wounds.
