May we, and may our fearful culture, learn to walk hand in hand with our grief.

I absorbed, integrated, and expressed the full measure of conscious grieving when my husband died, of a heart attack, in 2003.

In 2006 I collected my journals from that year in This Vast Being: A Voyage of Grief and Exultation.

For Beyond 50’s “Personal Growth” talks, listen to an interview with Stephen Jenkinson. He’ll talk about his work with dying people, featured in the documentary “Griefwalker” that is a a lyrical, poetic portrait of Stephen’s work with dying people. In his teachings, he regards grief and the love of life as twins, natural human skills that can be learned first by being on the receiving end and feeling worthy of them, later by practicing them when you run short of understanding. In a time like ours, grieving is a subversive act. Tune in to Beyond 50: America’s Variety Talk Radio Show promoting the natural, holistic, green and sustainable lifestyle.
