The Grief Flux Capacitor

If you remember the 80’s you probably remember a blockbuster movie called “Back to the Future.” In that movie there’s a scene when Doc Brown tells Marty about bumping his head and and suddenly getting the idea for the time travel engine, the flux capacitor!

“Taelor, what in the world does this have to do with grief!?”
Don’t worry I’m getting there.

A while back I was trying to come up with an explanation of how and why Grief Compass works and found my explanation kind of long and boring. Not sure if you can relate to this, but I’m a what they call “a visual person” so you can tell me things all day long, but could save us both a bunch of time if you just show me a picture. Pictures I remember.

Anyway, I took a break from writing that day and almost instantly had a proverbial Doc-Brown-hit-on-the-head-GREAT-SCOTT moment! So I feverishly cleared space on my white board, grabbed my markers and began to draw. My drawing skills are on par with about a seven year old, and my handwriting leaves a lot to be desired, but there it was, in living color– a visual representation of the engine that drives Grief Compass.

You are looking at the secret sauce my friend. What makes Grief Compass so unique is that we take a holistic approach to addressing grief. When you’re grieving you have intellectual, emotional, social, and physical needs that must all be addressed to help you find the way through your grief and back to feeling normal again. In Grief Compass we cover all these needs every week.

If you’re interested to hear more about what we’re doing and how we’re going to be delivering this to you, just click here and we’ll keep you up to date as this new part of our program develops. You can also sign up right on the page you’re on now to get a nudge when we post a new blog.

Grief is a road you shouldn’t travel alone. And with Grief Compass, you won’t have to.

(Unless you’re traveling in time because according to Back to the Future, in the future “we don’t need roads.“)
