Episode 9

Supporting Children’s Grief Through Mindfulness, Compassionate Care, and Buddhist Philosophy

In this episode we are joined by Andrew Blake, Director of Program Development at the Sarana Institute, who shares his own firsthand experiences with a death related loss in his childhood. As an ordained Buddhist Chaplain, as well as a counselling psychotherapist, and educator on mindfulness meditation, Andrew speaks when he was a young child how the death of his father influenced and shaped his journey into his present-day life and work. Andrews brings a unique perspective on the importance of diversifying the supports available to children and youth who are grieving, as well as educating those professionals who are providing the support.

Join us for an enlightening and intimate discussion with Andrew!
