Learn to navigate the complexities of grief and to write the story of living well after with pastor and activist John Pavlovitz.

John Pavlovitz reveals why your grief right now is a good thing.

To live here is to lose something. Every single human being is moving through this life while mourning a letting go—of someone they loved, their old story about God, their former image of country, the earlier mythology of their family, their belief in the goodness of people, the disconnection of a treasured relationship, their sense of optimism about the future.

If we lean into this universal loss, we can trace the source of our own trauma, courageously face our own mortality, become aware of the wounds of the world, and become agents of healing and hope in the midst of mourners.

Join pastor and best-selling author John Pavlovitz for an authentic, collaborative experience to grieve fully and live well after suffering an emotional loss, whether due to death, the end of a relationship, the fracture of a friendship, or a changed life story.

During our time together we explore:

  • The trauma of initial loss
  • The loneliness of grief
  • Grieving the old story and writing a new one
  • Mourning someone who is still here
  • The surprising gifts of grieving
  • Embracing a changing spirituality after loss
  • Practicing self-empathy in our mourning
  • Navigating grief for the long haul
  • How to build supportive communities
