“For in grief nothing “stays put.” One keeps on emerging from a phase, but it always recurs. Round and round. Everything repeats. Am I going in circles, or dare I hope I am on a spiral?

But if a spiral, am I going up or down it?

How often — will it be for always? — how often will the vast emptiness astonish me like a complete novelty and make me say, “I never realized my loss till this moment”? The same leg is cut off time after time.”
― C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

The power of grief is immeasurable. It strikes you in ways that can be difficult to pinpoint.

But here’s something we may miss: we can experience grief for various reasons beyond the death of someone we care about.

In this conversation, Rachel is joined by Liz, PLPC, to discuss grief—what it is, what can cause it, and how it impacts our bodies.
You will hear personal stories and learn about post-traumatic GROWTH–giving you hope that your grief journey can lead you toward healing and restoration.
