Life, Death & The Space Between with Dr. Amy Robbins

What it Means to Grieve Consciously?

In this heartfelt episode, I welcome Claire Bidwell Smith, a voice of solace and insight in the landscape of grief and loss. Claire's expertise helps us unravel the complexities of mourning, from the physical manifestations to the deeply spiritual questions that arise. We discuss her latest guiding light, 'Conscious Grieving,' and the unseen stages of grief that can lead to profound transformation if we dare to engage with them. Join us as we explore the therapeutic impact of mediums, the healing power of discussing our pain, and the subtle nuances across different types of grief. Prepare for a conversation that not only honors the intricacies of human sorrow but also illuminates pathways to continue meaningful connections with those we've lost.
