Grief is a life-long journey.
Today, our culture wants the grieving process to end after two weeks.
We help people who have experienced traumatic loss grieve freely and learn tools to integrate their grief into their daily lives.
Everyone should be #FREETOGRIEVE
One cold day in the month of January immediately following our tremendous losses of my two-year-old daughter, and my dad, I tried to get dressed.
I wanted to start my day and be a mother to our son. What I found instead is no clothing in the world felt appropriate.
All of my choices felt like a pathetic costume. I decided I needed a symbol. An external way of acknowledging my pain and broken heart, a notice to my community and loved ones and a way for me to feel legitimate in my costume.
This is how Clear Mourning was born.
What We Do
We aim to create a community both online and through peer-driven grief support networks.
Through our use and development of social media, partnerships with existing support organizations, and partnerships with funeral homes, our goal is to create a national symbol of grief
Clear Mourning is not designed to speed up the healing process or fix the grief. We want to allow survivors the space to grieve through our community and programs.
We support those who are grieving through our sharing our symbol of grief – the broken heart, as well as through a comprehensive list of resources and programs.
Through the support of volunteers, donors and our community, Clear Mourning provides programs that are designed to help people navigate, understand and integrate their grief.
This includes programs such as Yoga for Grief, meditation lectures, fianancial assistance programs and more.
