Our Documentary Film – Voices of Grief,  Honoring The Sacred Journey – shares a fresh perspective on the many ways we navigate successfully through grief or companion others along their journey.

Wisdom from contemporary authors, grief experts and spiritual teachers is woven through personal stories of loss to explore the roles of community, compassion and connection in this sacred journey.

Voices of Grief explores the discouragement in our culture for the normal grief and mourning process while at the same time offering a new perspective on how to honor, transform and integrate our grief. The film is based on the interplay of teachings from contemporary authors, poets, and spiritual teachers coupled with the stories of our group participants as we companion one another in our group support work.

Our Mission:
Restoring compassion, forgiveness and loving kindness
in the process of grief in our culture.

Watch a 3 minute excerpt from our film.

Somehow you manage to wrest the beauty from terrifying losses, and make it the last say.

Film Inspiration

Our purpose is educational in nature and it is our great desire to make this tool available to all who might have a need. As a grief educator for a Woodland Park, Colorado based hospice, I witness and companion the pain of people in my educational support groups who apologize for crying as they tell me the story of the love of their life. This film offers the possibility of reaching and inspiring a larger audience and will offer the possibility of a more heart and soul based reconciliation of grief.

It was very touching to have the NFDA audience join us in lighting a candle in memory of Arlen J. Brown. Arlen was a Funeral Director for over 50 years and was an owner of The Springs Funeral Services & The Springs Funeral Services-North.
