“We don’t pretend that all the above will solve some real-world challenges you may be facing. However, if you are able to take basic good care of your mind and body by following some of the wisdom offered, then you are far more likely to be in a good overall state to deal with difficulty and to make good decisions about how to respond best. We wish you all the best through this challenging time.” Rising minds

Grief
Some people believe there are as many as 44 different types of grief. At our Grief School, we will delve in to some of the ways we experience loss, so we can help people to better understand the nature of grief.
Each session is facilitated by a bereavement organisation and features academic researchers or authors, as well as ‘experts through experience’: people who have been personally affected by each type of bereavement or loss, who will share their insights
Grief school an online workshop
Our Grief Chats are intimate conversations between two guests who have both experienced the same type of grief or loss. They are hosted by writer and broadcaster Mark Lemon, who’s behind the five-star rated podcast, Grief is my Superpower.
Is this the age of grief?
Grief is a natural, essential and ubiquitous part of the human experience that manifests in different ways. Some grieve the loss of language or culture while others feel the collective grief of Covid-19. Many grieve for the huge injustices that occur around the world, while others grieve for the planet itself.
For these reasons, grief is increasingly in the spotlight. It’s emerging from behind doors to become something people are talking about for the first time in years…or in lifetimes. It is a fundamental and important part of the
human experience.
