Description

A. Olivia Nelson is a two-time widow in her twenties who, in the span of five years, said goodbye to family and friends alongside major non-death losses. Having to face grief in a variety of situations, she gained deep insight into our broken grief culture: grieving people lack support and those who want to help don't know how. To heal this gap, Nelson formed Learning About Grief, a website on which she shares personal stories, coping resources, and hosts a virtual grief group. Her vision is to change how we perceive grief. "We'll all bury a loved one," said Nelson. "Educating ourselves on what that's like helps us embrace grief as a human experience." You can find A. Olivia Nelson on Instagram @LearningAboutGrief, Twitter @LearnAboutGrief, or learningaboutgrief.com.

Don't forget to check out the recently released book Death and its Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Beautiful Lessons: field notes from The Death Dialogues Project. We are getting lovely feedback from folks who are reading if for self-reflection as well as many who are giving it for gifts. Available where books are sold. Kindle/e-book super affordable if you'd like to check it out. Most seem to be buying paperbacks, I'm sure the lovely cover has something to do with that. It's a great gift for when there are no words ...
