"I stopped trying to avoid despair and then I even stopped trying to get through despair I just picked it up and carried it with me everywhere that I go and realized that I had to make a place in my heart for despair and keep doing the work. One way of looking at it is that carrying around a heavy weight is a burden in tranquil times - but in turbulent and stormy times that heavy weight is an anchor, and that big rock that you carry around is what prevents you from getting swept away." - Tim DeChristopher, environmental activist, sentenced to 2 years federal prison and from the documentary "How To Let Go of the World & Love All The Things The Climate Can't Change"

Last week we wrapped up Recording Resilience a one-week intensive summer camp which brings together filmmaking mentors from NW Doc and teens from The Dougy Center. Across the span of 5 days, the teens write, shoot, and edit a short documentary film about the person in their life who died. Thank you to all the teen film makers and mentors. For you strength, perserverance and passion.

Forever missing her hands.....How, with just a touch across the table, she could lift a world full of heavy from your shoulders. Thinking about and missing her extra lately. 🖤 #mama

"Parade of Champions" opens September 16th in Montreal, so join me if you're in town, babies. @revueesse will also be launching their Fall issue featuring an essay by @rickvarg on this three-channel video installation, which centres the black queer grief of @ravynwngz, @chyryan and @iamdalts #blackqueerdaughters #blackqueersons #blackart #blackartists #griefwork

What Is It Like To Lose A Child?
It’s OK to wonder about the answer to this question. And it’s OK to ask what happened. We are all so curious about the trials that others endure and I think that the more insight we can give each other, the more empathetic we can be.

It is hard for me to describe in words what it’s like to lose a child. In trying to come up with a description, I think of adjectives like “horrific” or “awful”, and they just don’t do it justice. I think this is why many people spend years in their grief journey in silence. What words can you use to describe such wounding heartbreak?

My only decription I have for you, is that part of me died the day that Ethan died. I will never be the same. Forever changed. My heart is no longer complete.

And yet I find peace. Because the pain I experience from losing a child is a direct reflection of how much I loved him. There is a cost to loving so much. And I loved Ethan with every.single.ounce of me. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

So now my brokenness, reminds me of my passionate love for my boy. It is bittersweet. Some days it’s more bitter and other days it’s more sweet. ❤️ #ethansstory

On this plate, I wrote numerous words to represent all of my negative emotions and struggles associated with grief.
Then I SMASHED it.
Keeping my heart open to self-love, joy, forgiveness, patience, acceptance, and peace. ✨💕 #transformativegrief #griefwork #whatsyourgrief (Shout out to the beautiful @norajeanne for the prop plates to smash.)

So I did more than breathe today BUT I had a moment. .
.

I woke up, spent time with The Lord, got babies up, fed and out for school.(more than breathing already, I know)
.
.

Came home worked out, ate, showered and I needed a nap.
.
.

Now I am a morning person and get all of my work done early, but lately, I've been moving later, a lot later.
.
.

And guess what? That's ok.
.
.

Maybe it's the change of seasons, maybe it's just one of those times where I need to just roll with it and take care of me.
.
.

Whatever it is...I am going to embrace it and if I just need to only get my kids to school one day, then that's what I will do.
.
.

If you are on this grief journey and you need to just take a day or two to breathe and sleep..it's OK. Still healing Y'all! Still grief working .

Fall book recommendations as the veil thins. ✨👌🏻✨
This is the season of grief and remembrance. It's filled with nostalgia for what came before mixed with the loss of what will never be.
This is the season of gratitude. Of blessings and releasing.
Of dying.
Of creating space.
To grieve is to love.
We heal the ancestors when we grieve them. Our tears carry them across the divide into the other world.
We have unexpressed grief that we carry as a collective - the weight of all our ancestral wounds. .
The heart must be open to grieve. Imagine how the world would change if we knew how to collectively grieve...
What would it feel like to know our ancestors were smiling and supporting us? .

Today our Nation will grieve. Gord came into my life during my formative years as a teen. I resisted the charm and poetic songs that finally talked about more than getting laid or partying... to be won over by the acoustic Wheat Kings and then fell in love fully, completely with Scared and Grace, too off the Day for Night album. Later, a declaration of true love and match made in heaven between me and Gord occurred when Long Time Running came into my life from a previous album. This guy knew how to open my heart.
You see, Gord spoke to our feelings. He made us feel. Sometimes it was a feeling we didn't even know we had. But on a much deeper level than many other artists. We crave to feel - and yet we often don't know how. Gord knew how to tap into that.
Maybe I am biased. The Hip was with me when I lost my high school sweetheart (so was Pink Floyd) and have remained ever since a musical crutch in my home to keep me connected to those feelings from high school and to my dear friend.
In this moment, I'm gonna feel these feels. Let it out. And then crank My Music at Work, and go back to this grief tonight - yes, it's important to go back to it.

Not sure what to do? Feel it. Listen to him. Get the Secret Path album and listen. Like really fuckin listen. Gord wanted us to move towards Truth and Reconciliation. He believed we had the power to heal a Nation. Research the story - find out what really happened in Canada to our First Nations people and be a part of the healing process. This wasn't something that happened a hundred years ago. It ended in the 90's and the pain is still here. Be a part of the healing process by being informed rather than ignorant. Attend a Building Bridges Through Understanding the Village workshop. It's the least we can do to honour Gord's legacy for all he has given us.
I'll leave you with this... what do you think would happen if Gord, Tom, David, Leonard, and Prince were all in the same room?
Heartbroken and healing,
AM

What keeps YOU from experiencing JOY?
Could it be fear? If we give in and truly experience JOY, what will happen to us if it gets stripped away? Would it be worth it?

Could it be pain? If we decide to seek JOY during our pain journeys, do we feel like we are minimizing the trial we are enduring? Do we shy away from JOY as not to cheat the full effect our trial will have on us and therefore get stuck in our sadness?

Could it be distractions due to our “busy” lives? If we say “no” to more distractions and seek JOY instead, will we stand out in the crowd? What will others think?

What if we fought for our JOY? What if we decided to take it back from the control our fears, pain and distractions have on it?

This is a daily battle for me and I would love for you all to be on the journey with me to Choose Joy. We can not wait to “feel” joyful...but we must take deliberate action to embrace JOY.

In Episode 2 of Nurturing Habit, available now, I talk with Jamie Van Zanen. Jamie is a LCSW, who spent a decade in hospice and who now works with pre-natal and postpartum moms (she's also my sister!). Jamie has some wise advice for how to care for yourself as a caregiver (whether you are caring for a baby or a sick or dying person), and how to support yourself in a time of grief. Find the episode now by heading to my site and then clicking Podcast in the menu. #linkinprofile👆

Unfortunately, there is no way around grief. You have to go through. There are many ways to complete and meet our inner hopes, dreams and expectations. Soon I will be posting more on this important topic.

Gonna be a "Late Night Work Night" but I can't really call it that when I'm playing with oils and drinking my fave spice tea ☕️ #essentialoils #teamdeans #livelovelight

it's fun to watch which remedies resonate for people at different times. i see a lot of patterns in orders and what people are needing and wanting. right now it's At the Threshold (for the Tower full collapse feels and for making room for grief and joy at the same time) and Clear Head (for all the fuzzy brain days). every order has included them this week.
.
if you're needing them too, you can find these friends on my website (link in profile).

Grief is like the ocean; it comes in waves, ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometime it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn how to swim.
