Talking about loss and mourning. Weaving strings of meaning through the grieving process

Death and the pain that follows is an inherent life experience that everyone eventually has to face. The process of grief entails experiencing and managing the pain that follows the loss of a loved one and the effort to weave again the meaning of our life, after being shaken from bereavement, by reassessing our goals and priorities in life. Accepting and adjusting to loss is a long-term and active process that happens through complex and interrelated interactions with the important people in our families and communities.
