The Science and Soul of Living Well

The cost of *not* grieving

December 15, 2020

On today's episode we discuss important findings from scientific research that can deepen our understanding of grief and help us work toward a compassionate conceptualization of grief and the purpose it serves in our lives. We also focus on 5 key considerations that can not only support us as we navigate grief individually and collectively but also enhance the support and solace we offer to others who are grieving.
