Megan will first guide you through a one month virtual Grief Writing Course, with the intention of giving space and voice to your own personal grief journey. Megan will follow this intensive with a webinar, where it will be an opportunity to talk about what you learned, and how you might carry that experience out into your personal and professional worlds.
- What does it mean to companion someone inside their pain, rather than try to fix it?
