EZ Conversations: Being a Grief Ally

My conversation with Furkhan on the EZ Conversations Podcast


EZ Conversations is a podcast to normalize hard conversations. Talk about adversity, struggles with mental health, feeling alone, and facing tough decisions. Topics range from spirituality, evolutionary changes, cultural barriers, our daily lives, and finding gratitude. EZ Conversations is hosted by Furkhan Dandiam, a therapist, author, speaker, and coach.

In the episode, we talked about my motivation to write Grief Ally and why I believe that allies during grief are crucial. We discuss a couple of chapters in the book and highlight key things to be mindful of when supporting people experiencing grief. We also talked about Covid-19 and grieving in isolation. Give it a listen on your preferred platform.

As I Live and Grieve: Filling the Gap in Grief Resources

As I Live and Grieve: Filling the Gap in Grief Resources

Grieving is a painful journey, one best not taken alone. Contrary to some perceptions, the process of grieving after the death of a loved one is not a simple step by step process. Nor is it the same for everyone.

It’s time for Grief to come out of the basement or wherever we have stuffed it to avoid talking about it. That’s why we started this podcast. The only way we can continue to put one foot in front of the other while living and grieving at the same time is to be able to talk about our memories, be honest about our feelings and support others that are walking a similar path. Less isolation, more community. We hope you will join us.
