No matter who we are or what we do, each of us eventually deals with loss, grief and death.  Profound spiritual crises often arise when forced to respond to a loved one’s painful illness or confronted with our own mortality.  Our panel will address how to gain insight as to our own experience with grief and loss, what spiritual practices are helpful, and how to come along side others who are grieving.
