Meet & Grieve: Ambiguous Loss

Most of us know what it means to grieve when someone dies, but what about a loss without a death? Ambiguous loss is a loss without closure or clear understanding, leaving us feeling uncertain, confused, and alone. It can happen when a loved one is physically present but psychologically absent (as with dementia or addiction), or physically absent but psychologically present (as in the case of missing persons or estranged relationships). If you're grappling with ambiguous loss, join us for a Virtual Meet & Grieve, hosted by Grieve Leave's founder, Rebecca Feinglos. Come as you are, whether you're ready to open up, ask questions, or simply find comfort in the presence of those who "get it."

Grief Onscreen: A Meet & Grieve Screening of Captain Scott B and the Great Adventure

Join us for a special Meet & Grieve exploring grief through the lens of the documentary, "Captain Scott B and the Great Adventure." Hosted by Grieve Leave's Rebecca Feinglos, and featuring Betsy Bertram, the film's co-producer and subject, this virtual gathering offers a unique opportunity to witness one woman's journey to find hope and meaning after the death of her father. Set against the stunning backdrop of North Carolina's natural beauty, the film follows Betsy as she embarks on a quest to complete her late father's project, uncovering his wisdom on living a magical life along the way. Through hiking, paddling, and kiteboarding adventures, Betsy invites us to consider what it means to live fully, even in the face of grief. After the screening, we'll open the floor for a Q&A with Betsy, diving into the film's themes and her personal experiences. Whether you've faced the death of a loved one or any other form of grief, this judgment-free space welcomes you to share, listen, and find solace among others who understand. Don't miss this opportunity to connect with the Grieve Leave community and explore the role of film in processing grief.

Meet & Grieve: For Men & The People Who Love Them

Join Grieve Leave and Mike D's BBQ for a special Meet & Grieve focused on bringing together men and the people who love them to explore the unique challenges of navigating grief. Over BBQ, beer, and conversation, we'll hear personal stories from Michael De Los Santos D, the founder and owner of Mike D's BBQ, Grieve Leave's founder, Rebecca Feinglos, and, you’ll have plenty of time to connect with others who understand grief….and good BBQ. Whether you're a man seeking support or looking to support a man who's experiencing loss of any kind (the death of a loved one or a friend, the loss of a child, divorce, a diagnosis, or something else), this judgment-free gathering offers a chance to listen, learn, and find solace just in time for Father's Day. Space is limited to 25 attendees, so register early! While the event is free to attend, please plan to purchase your own food and drinks on-site at Mike D's BBQ.

Meet & Grieve: Navigating Grief In The Workplace AMA

Grief doesn't clock out when you clock in. At times, grief can feel amplified in the workplace - whether you're grieving a death, breakup, job loss, or any other life-altering event, the challenge of juggling those intense emotions while maintaining “professionalism” (whatever we think that means) can be overwhelming. And don't get us started on how three days of bereavement leave is nowhere near enough – we'll talk about this and more during our special "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) event focused on navigating how we handle our grief in the workplace. Rebecca Feinglos, founder of Grieve Leave, will provide insights, share her own experiences, and answer your questions about managing grief on the job.

Meet & Grieve: When Grief Hits Too Young

Grief doesn't always wait until you’re older. For many young adults, the overwhelming experience of loss - whether it's a devastating diagnosis, death, or another life-altering event - is often overlooked. While support exists for children and older folks, there's a huge gap when it comes to those in their teens, 20s, and 30s. That's why we're teaming up with our friends at Gray for Glioblastoma for this special Meet & Grieve. Hosted by Grieve Leave's founder, Rebecca Feinglos, in collaboration with Kate Snedeker of Gray for Glioblastoma, this virtual gathering is a much-needed space for young adults navigating grief. Whether your loss was recent or long ago, you can unload, connect with others who get it, or just listen - whatever you need, this space is for you.
