E41: Refuge in Grief with Megan Devine

Megan Devine Shelby Forsythia

An everyday activity turned into a nightmare for Megan Devine who watched her partner, Matt, drown during one of their usual "quick dips" in the river. Her community, Refuge In Grief, and new book, It’s OK That You’re Not OK: Meeting Grief & Loss in a Culture that Doesn’t Understand, are powerful beacons for grieving hearts. We're talking about the librarians that live in our brains, the importance of having a will, and the switch from "doing for" a loved one versus "doing in honor" of a loved one. Also on the show, I'm giving you permission to forget in the aftermath of loss.
