Voices of Grief: Love Stories – Behind the Scenes (2:30)

A special message about our project and how it began:

Voices of Grief: Love Stories – A First Look (3:50)

Project Origins

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.

Rabbi Harold Kushner, Dr. Alan Wolfelt, Stephen and Ondrea Levine, Dr. Kenneth Doka, and Thomas Lynch are among the experts interviewed for this project. Upon completion, the film will be distributed to training facilities, hospice, hospitals, funeral homes, pastoral counseling centers, churches and ultimately Public Broadcasting.

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 non-profit pastoral counseling center in Colorado Springs, 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.
