Read the transcript here

Tom Attig – When we lose the living presence of a loved one, brokenness and sorrow come over us. Stories of resilience illustrate how, as we struggle to overcome this suffering, we draw upon what is not broken within us, the depths of our soul and spirit .

Professor Emeritus in Applied Philosophy at Bowling Green State University (Ohio), Tom Attig is Past President of the Association for Death Education and Counselling and is best known for his pioneering writings on grief and loss, including How We Grieve: Relearning the World and The Heart of Grief: Death and the Search for Lasting Love.

He teaches online courses on ethical and spiritual issues at the end of life for King’s University College (University of Western Ontario). Now living in Victoria, he serves as chair of the Spiritual Care and Wellness ministry at First Metropolitan United Church.
