    A Lesson in Avoiding Avoidance

    A Lesson in Avoiding Avoidance

    When the world changes, the way we operate in the world has to change. Grief forces us to make new decisions about the things we do, the things we don't do, and how we cope. Today we talk about how so many of those decisions may feel good in the short term, but often don't serve us in the long-run. Avoidance sounds like it is obvious, but sometimes it hides in corners we don't even recognize.

    In Grief, Is It Ever Too Late?

    When a lot of time has passed after a loss, we hear all sorts of questions - is it too late for counseling? Is it too late to reconnect with people I lost touch with? Is it too late to ask for stories and memories? We're pretty strong believers that, in grief, it is never too late.

Needs a Plan

I love your articles, your website and your Instagram account. The podcast feels too off the cuff and there is so much talking before any points are made. I want to like it but it gives me a bit of a headache. I keep trying but wish it was a bit more scripted and succinct so I get more take aways without having to be so patient. Thank you for your hard work to help with grief!

Audio needs improvement

Great content and such a novel, important concept! Loved the episode on losing “home.” There is a persistent “buzz” in the background that makes it hard to listen; perhaps invest in a better mic, as this content is great and would be wonderful for people to be able to listen to.

Wanted to love it

The banter back and forth takes the topic of grief and makes it flippant and almost comical. If you are really needing support through something this isn't it.
