While everyone experiences grief in their life, nobody ever talks about it. Families that experience loss often avoid conversations about grief because they don’t know how to navigate intense emotions, and cultural norms that discourage the discussion of death.
Reflect is a collaborative art kit that provides a space for families to express grieving in both verbal and non-verbal ways. Individuals start by journaling for a few weeks to understand their feelings, allowing them to gain clarity and perspective before having a conversation with their family. Then Reflect guides families together through a conversation activity using creativity to express their emotions through mediums such as clay sculpting, painting, and jewelry making.
By providing personalized conversation starter prompts, families are able to navigate through the complexity of grief in a safe and structured environment.
