Welcome to the 2nd Annual Virtual Grief Symposium. The 2020 Virtual Grief Symposium, Navigating Emotions, brings in over 20+ speakers who share stories of grief, loss, hope, and perseverance while providing practical tools to help you along your grief journey. We are creating an arena where you will gain value in the creation of unity and sincere heart driven outpouring of each one of our own unique perspectives. You will be provided the gift of guidance through knowledge and heart felt service as each speaker becomes transparent in sharing their own experience to help you in your struggle with loss. Our hope is that you begin to renew hope and take small steps forward as you define your new normal.

About the 2020 Virtual Grief Symposium 


Gratitude is the process of capturing the beauty and preserving special memories you have experienced with your loved one. 

 

Gratitude opens your heart and soul to renew HOPE. 


Perceiving your loss as an extension of the LOVE you have been given shapes character, brings joy, provides confidence, and is powerful in its healing capabilities. Know that you grieve because you have been gifted with a heart open to GREAT LOVE! You must find a way to live your life while honoring the one you have lost. 


This journey may seem unattainable at times. Your grief journey is unique to you and is no small feat. As you explore the emotional turmoil that holds you captive in your grief, challenge any untrue thoughts, and allow yourself to welcome and be consumed by gratitude, you will feel validated in your struggles, begin to renew your hope, and honor your loved one by living in your purpose.


If you are grieving a loss, I would like to tell you that you are not alone. Processing your loss brings a plethora of emotion that you may not wish to sit with. However, when you work through the emotions instead of going around them; it is then that you can begin to take small stair steps towards moving forward in life. Pain from circumstance, no matter how horrific, can be dissolved as we move through and not around emotion. We find a new perspective, new hope, and the peace we are promised that surpasses all understanding.


The 2020 Grief Symposium has been created to bring those who grieve together in their understanding that Grief is something we should acknowledge and share. You do not have to suffer alone. There is something sensational about coming together as a community and releasing the emotion that cripples. Relating to others, reaching out to others, and encouraging others can begin a healing process one small Stair Step at a time.
