Grieving sucks. It is challenging, heartbreaking work.
But what if grief were also an opportunity to embrace self-acceptance, experience creative inspiration, and make space for laughter?
What might life look like if an awareness of death empowered us to reevaluate our relationship to our belongings and ourselves?
After grief asks us to bear witness to our pain, it can be an invitation to rediscover the past, celebrate the present, and prepare for a more meaningful future.
Humor is an essential tool
Expressions of grief can be a healthy part of everyday living
Everyone already has the capacity to provide good care for themselves and their loved ones
It is vital to invest in access and provide peer support services at sliding scale
Kat is an artist who credits her relationship with grief for helping to discover deeper relationships, more transcendent beauty, and lasting feelings of joie de vivre. She believes the way a person dies can teach us a lot about how they’ve lived and aspires to die consciously, with a combination talent show/pizza party at her deathbed. Her career has been full of improvisation, and following a series of impactful losses, she is directing her creative energies to addressing the epidemic of grief in the wake of Covid-19. Her goal is to spark conversation as the "Good Grief Doula" and empower individuals as they address the inevitable with courage, creativity, and care.
