Episode 106: Sujan Ali
Healing Through Grief
If I were to choose the emotion that is most difficult for Americans (especially white people) to process it is grief. However, as Francis Weller so beautifully said, “Grief and love are sisters, woven together from the beginning. Their kinship reminds us that there is no love that does not contain loss and no loss that is not a reminder of the love we carry for what we once held close.”
In that spirit, I invited Sujan Ali to be on my podcast to talk about grief, art, and healing. Based in Canada, Sujan is a certified grief coach, a grief support facilitator, and poet.
Together, we both answered the following:
1) What is the difference between grief and sadness/sorrow?
2) How has social conditioning influenced how we experience grief?
3) What are some effective ways to accept and process grief?
