The Mindfulness and Grief Podcast series, hosted by author and thanatologist Heather Stang, features meditation teachers and grief professionals who offer compassionate insights for coping with grief and life after loss.

Heather Stang interviews Megan Murphy of The Kindness Rocks Project, and explores how painting rocks and spreading kindness can help us maintain a connection with our departed loved ones and tap into our own inner wisdom as we navigate life after loss. Hear how one woman's grief experience unexpectedly launched a worldwide movement, and how you can be a part of the mission to offer "one message of kindness at just the right moment" to yourself and your community. 

Heather Stang interviews David A. Treleaven, Ph.D., author of "Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness," for an closer look at the intersection of grief, trauma, and mindfulness, so you can understand the benefits and pitfalls before you practice. Mindfulness meditation is highly praised for helping people reduce physical, emotional, and psychological suffering. But when trauma is involved, mindfulness needs to be handled with care, modified, or outright avoided. Please subscribe to the Mindfulness and Grief Podcast.
