Oct. 4th! Grief: A One Man Sh*tShow

Posted by alygeller on Oct. 1, 2023, 10:52 a.m. 1 comment

Join Oscar-nominated filmmaker, author, and playwright Colin Campbell this Wednesday, Oct. 4th, 6:30 pm EST, for a live & streaming performance of his acclaimed play, Grief: A OneMan Sh*tShow. 

Colin's two children, Ruby and Hart, were killed when a drunk driver hit the family's car. This cataclysmic loss prompted Colin's deep exploration of grief and how we show up - and sometimes falter - when comforting others.

Join Colin in person at New York's People's Forum, or streaming online, for a performance of excerpts from the play, followed by an interview, audience conversation and book signing.

Film about Death and Dying

Film about Death and Dying

Hello everyone, 


My name is Chelsea and I am an Associate Producer of the documentary In the Realm of Death & Dreaming, which asks the big question: Does consciousness continue after death, or is it lights out? This is the first film in a three part series about death and dying, and I’m posting today because many of our viewers are finding the film to be a helpful tool not only in their grieving process, but as a way of beginning to talk about death.


As you all know, exploring what happens after death not only helps us decide how we want to be cared for at the ...

All Things: Reflections, Ruminations & Ramblings on a Year in the Company of Grief

All Things is an adapted grief journal from Steve Barlow, an experienced UK therapist, who wanted to present a 'grief as it happens' experience to readers. Following the sudden death of his younger brother, the author here presents one year of his grief journey, which covers many classic themes, explores the often side-lined bereavement experience of sibling loss and inevitably brings him face to face with issues relating to his own mortality in a very real rather than abstract sense.

Posted by mariap on April 27, 2020, 8:52 a.m. 2 comments

Oxidation of Grief: Reflections on Adult Sibling Loss

One of few books focused specifically on adult sibling loss, The Oxidation of Grief is a compilation of personal essays written as the author mourned the death of her younger sister. The second half of the book includes the stories of 13 others whose siblings died before their time. Many books are available on the loss of parents and children. Many are also available to help young children mourn the loss of a sibling. Described by some as “the forgotten mourners,” the contributors to this book express grief for the loss of the special, life-long relationships between brothers and sisters.

Hi. I'm looking for people to interview for a research project that will attempt to find out why we announce the deaths of our loved ones on social media, and what this means for our relationship with death and grief.

When I was 24, my mum passed away after a battle with cancer. Amongst the grief and shock I felt, I remember thinking how I should inform people. After deciding to use social media, I spent a long time trying to composing a message that was informative and respectful, but also expressed my feelings at the time. It proved a lot more difficult than expected.

It made me realise that the way we inform others of a loved one’s passing is a sizeable part of the duties involved following a death. By offering to discuss this sensitive topic with a researcher, your experience and perspective will help to provide a fuller picture of the grieving process.
