Good Grief: Reforming our Discourse around Grief and Loss

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

One of the things nerdfighters do best with John and Hank is consider their mortality. We've all lost something dear to us. Hospital chaplaincy reveals that the dominant attitude toward grief is currently one of shame and repression: "Just stay positive.” "Get over it." In small and large group discussions, we'll practice bearing witness to the pain of loss. Could we collectively decrease world suck by reforming our discourse surrounding grief?
