Grief, like joy, is one of our human conditions. Yet it is the one we, as Americans, are the least willing to confront, even as it becomes more essential to do so than ever. We prize pushing forward, but maybe it’s time to pause. As we emerge from the catastrophic losses of the pandemic — and wrestle with the regular traumas of modern life — how do we heal ourselves to plant seeds for our future? What wisdom can we call upon to create hope for a more introspective, joyful and honest culture?
Grief, Collected tackles how we begin to grieve, and how America, and Americans, can begin to recover its sense of self after such immense loss.
We will examine American culture’s unique relationship to grief, how we can make a shift towards creating grieving practices, the risks we take if we don’t properly grieve what we’ve lost — and what clarity, empathy, and liberation we can gain if we do.
