A word about grief

Grief is a normal part of the human experience, yet our Western culture does not honor this important part of the life cycle. The message to those grieving has traditionally been to

"get over it" or to "move on". We know now that the grieving process is an essential part of healing; avoiding it, or moving on too quickly, actually has negative repercussions. We can feel grief for a range of losses, from rejection or dissappointment, to a death. As we work together through this important process, we can ulitmately find strength.
