S02E03 - Grief, Healing and Moving On (Life after Death)

The Unlearning Playground

May 7 2024 • 36 mins

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is a profound and personal journey. In today's heartfelt episode, the third one of season 2 of The Unlearning Playground Podcast by Chetan Narang, we discuss practical and emotional tips to help you process grief and navigate the complex emotions that follow. I feel that conversations around the topic of death are few & far compared to the emotional turmoil this event can cause in our lives, and hence this topic appears to me to be one of those non-negotiable ones that I should pick in this new series of podcast episodes. This is also an extremely personal episode for me, because I share some updates to my life that actually pushed me to sit in front of my mic with this subject, no matter how emotionally challenging. From understanding the stages of grief to finding ways to honor and remember your loved one, this guide is here to support you at your own pace. Whether you're seeking comfort, guidance, or simply a sense of connection, join me as I explore the path toward healing, acceptance and moving on. Remember, it's okay to grieve and it's okay to seek help. Let's take this step together. In sincere hopes that this lands. Until next time. Peace out.
