Grief is at an unprecedented level during Covid-19 and yet we are losing the normal in-person ways we grieve. How can we stay connected? Lennon Flowers is the co-founder of The Dinner Party, a platform for connecting mostly 20 and 30 somethings, as well as early 40 somethings, people who are often among the first in their peer community to experience a loss. In this episode, Lennon and I have a discussion about authentic conversations and creating spaces, virtual and in-person, that help people dealing with loss.
Lennon talks about:
The format of The Dinner Party and the role of the host
Modeling vulnerability and encouraging authentic conversation, even in online spaces
The paradox of grief in this moment of Covid-19: Both heartbreak and hope can coexist
