Grief is a normal and natural emotional response to a loss. Coping with this loss often requires a substantial effort.

The grieving process takes time and healing usually happens gradually. Feelings of loss and sadness may never go away, but with time the grief will lighten. It's normal for a person to experience a wide range of physical and emotional responses. It's important to remember that everyone deals with death and loss very differently.

In the exclusive video feature 'Coping with your grief' by Doris Zagdanski the journey of grief is beautifully described complimented with photography and music.
