Capture Your Grief – Day 28: Wisdom

Lean into the grief.

Lean into the grief.
Two months after Calvin died, we joined the UCSF Compass Care support group for bereaved parents. Our facilitators were Helge Osterholde and Melissa Whippo. They one of the first and few to tell us to honor our feelings, to lean into the grief. They helped me find the path to healing.

Capture Your Grief is an annual, 31-day mindful healing project that consists of photography and reflection. It is for “anyone who is grieving the death of a baby or child at any age or gestation.” Learn how you can participate or provide support at Carly Marie Project Heal.

Crystal is a mother-wife-writer whose explorations include parenting, grief, food, and semi-crunchy living. She is currently an MFA in writing student, a content editor for Still Standing Magazine, and the technical editor for Switchback.

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." (Ephesians 4:29)
