The other day I listened to CBC's program Tapestry with guest host Christa Couture.
The title of the show was Better ways to live with grief.
The heartfelt discussions were uplifting and at the same time touched me deeply.
I was glad to hear psychologist David Feldman debunking the 5 stages of grief.
If you have followed the Healing Notes for a while then you know that there are no stages and that everyone grieves in their own unique way. It can get messy.
Next up was actor and comedian Cariad Lloyd. Cariad hosts the podcast Griefcast. I have been listening to some of her episodes and they are worth listening to for sure.
Last but not least Christa Couture talked to artist and designer Emily McDowel. Emily creates empathy cards that are to the point and sometimes full of humour.
Emily gave advice on what to say and what not to say when you have a friend that is grieving. I was glad to find her cards in one of our local greeting card shops.
