Every widowed experience is different, and yet the way the person you love died may influence how you grieve. At Soaring Spirits we've discovered that connecting with other people whose loved one died in the same way as yours offers a unique and powerful comfort as you move through your grief.
Shared Experiences is a place to find others whose lives have been altered in some of the same ways as yours. Sudden loss, long or short term illness, suicide, accidents or deaths complicated by addiction or mental health struggles: this portion of our website offers videos, resources, books, and group connections that facilitate the exploration of topics unique to the type of death your loved one(s) experienced, and how that death experience influences your healing.
Just click on the category below that best describes the manner in which your loved one died, and then follow the prompts to access resources that relate to your lived experience. Some categories will offer further connections through sub-categories designed to address more specific types of illness or sudden deaths.
We know that not every type of experience is represented on these pages. If you don't find your experience within any of our categories, please feel free to reach out to us via our Contact Us page. Our goal is to provide resources that matter for every person who visits Widowed Village.
