A COMMUNITY POLL ON GRIEF
When grief runs up on you, do you bust out your journal or turn to your altar? Breeze past the moment and forget about it? Phone a friend?
We asked community members how they handle those moments when they wish they could hear from someone who has passed away.
BRING SOME JOY TO SCHOOL
We spoke to educators at the 2023 Summer Learning Conference at Buena Vista University about prioritizing mental health for their learners and themselves, creative wellness tools for coping amidst transition, and cultivating more joyful working and learning environments.
TOOLS + CONSIDERATIONS FOR RAGGEDY TIMES
Because none of us can avoid grief’s ashy-knuckled grasp.
There is no right way to navigate grief and loss. But it’s much easier to do with joy, community, and good snacks.
This crowdsourced griefKit has articles and essays, books, communities and toolkits, mindful movement, music and podcasts, recipes, activities for reflection and exploration, and lots of love.
Available in text form and as a joy-filled 55-page downloadable PDF.

Here’s what a few community members had to say about the GetSomeJoy Experience.
“Alex did a great job bringing us together and creating a safe space with no judgment while supporting us through the most difficult time we’ve gone through globally. We all went through this together. To have that support was invaluable.”

LITERARY THERAPY ATTENDEE
“I’ve been to a lot of groups. I lead sewing workshops for domestic violence survivors. Outside of my therapist, this was probably the first time I’ve ever really felt heard. It was the best group I’ve ever been to. And I learned that I don’t listen enough. I’m so glad I found this space.”
