Session No. 90 

‘We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.’ – Toni Morrison

How do you survive losing the love of your life, and how do you begin to talk about it? This is the painful journey that author, journalist and psychotherapist Sasha Bates wrestles with in Languages of Loss. After the unexpected death of her husband Bill, Sasha draws on her years of counselling to make sense of her personal experience of grief, and to find the many ‘languages’ needed to help her express what felt like an indescribable loss. Wherever you’re at in your own relationship with grief and loss, this conversation is intended to be a practical look at how to find hope and light in the dark.
