    Claire B. Willis - Opening to Grief: An Invitation to Turn Towards Emotions

    Airing on October 12, 2020, 11 am PST | 2 pm EST | 8 pm CEST
    OMTimes Radio - Voice Rising

    All of us at some point in our lives, experience loss, yet few of us are comfortable with grieving. It is hard to navigate the waters of loss. How does grief manifest in our lives? How can we integrate grieving while still carrying on with day-to-day commitments? The passage of time may be of some help, but time by itself is not the answer. It is how we “spend” the time. Join Voice Visionary Kara Johnstad and Claire B. Willis, author and clinical social worker for a heartfelt conversation on grief and how we can learn to give it a voice. Co-founder of the Boston nonprofit, Facing Cancer Together Claire is a lay Buddhist chaplain, and yoga/meditation teacher specialized in oncology, therapeutic writing, and bereavement for the last 25 years. Today she celebrates with us the release of her new book, Opening to Grief: Finding Your Way from Loss to Peace, which she co-authored with Marnie Crawford Samuelson. If our lives are to remain vital, our hearts have to stay open, for our grief is an expression of our love. Join Kara and Claire as we deepen the practice of embracing grief and holding uncertainty.

    Writing guru and NPR commentator Nancy Slonim Aronie joins Kara Johnstad at Voice Rising for a heartfelt conversation on finding your authentic voice. Author of the bestselling book, "Writing From Your Heart: Tapping the Power of Your Inner Voice," Nancy's approach to creative writing is a path to healing the self. She shows us how to reverse the damaging effects done to writers in school, where red pens and disciplined grammar taught many of us to mistrust our natural ability as storytellers. Explore together how to honor your voice by developing a writing practice. Learn to write in your own rhythms. Discover how to find your personal language and write your own stories. Of course, not to be missed, how to hush those die-hard inner critics and unthaw from years trying to "be correct." As Nancy says, "I don't think anyone can really teach writing. What I know I can do is create a safe place for writers to write."

Our path to love and truth depends on this journey."
