Widowed Gathering

because you lived 'til death dO us part

Let's talk about it.

Being widowed is devastating, and it doesn’t matter whether you’ve lived 40 years together or four weeks. No one wants their soulmate to die.

As someone who’s lived the “until death does us part,” I understand that surviving life without your person is hard. So how do you continue living when your life partner is dead?

My name is Ashley, and I buried a soulmate, learned to cope, battled the fear and anxiety of dating after loss, found a second soulmate, and then became widowed again.

So, when you say it’s exhausting, or feel sad about unlived plans, and feel frustrated about the bank accounts and writing obituaries and all the other information people don’t think of, I get it. 

It sucks. There’s just no other way to say it.

Because of this, I’m hosting a gathering for widowed people. Whether you were married, engaged, or checking off “it’s complicated,” you’re welcome here. We’ve all cried and gotten angry over our dead lovers.

Grief is a difficult and lonely journey. It feels even more isolating when many cannot relate to your experience or think it can be cured by quickly “finding someone else.” At our gathering, you won’t find that. 

You’ll meet people who “get it” and not just because they’ve lost someone. But because they have a widowed heart like yours too. 

When is it? It's virtual.

The event is 60-90 minutes long.

Gathering: Wednesday, October 26, 2022:

4:00 p.m. PST Los Angeles | 7:00 p.m. EST New York | Sydney 9:00 a.m. AEDT (October 27)

What will we do?

This is a gathering. It’s a time when you can come together with other like-minded survivors who are widowed.

You can share your experience, learn from others, and listen in to get coping tools. Being on camera is encouraged, even if not for the full duration. I do encourage you to have your mic on to chat with others. The event will not be recorded to maintain your privacy. Learning About Grief welcomes all relationships statuses (dating, engaged, married).

Do you have questions? Contact me.

Now, you can join us.
