GRIEF IS THE WORD: A Compendium of Grief Resources compiled by DANNA D. SCHMIDT, Master Life-Cycle Celebrant.
When I began sourcing materials for my Communal Grief Ritual research project as capstone for my Masters in Celebrancy designation, I noticed a prevalence of theories that suggested grief is a pathology and affliction, or something with definable states to move through and stages to be overcome. I wanted to explore grief from an interdisciplinary approach and through the lens of creative and cross-cultural modalities. This document was born from that exploration and my belief that grief is an initiation, inviting into a deeper experience of this human journey of living and loving.
