Join Jayne Mattingly, Say It Brave Collective Member, Founder & CEO of The And Initiative, and fellow in this special six-week series. Throughout the six-weeks, attendees will learn, relate to, and build a community around the universal experience of body grief. Body Grief, coined by Jayne Mattingly herself, is defined as “the universal experience of disillusionment, sorrow, and loss that comes with simply existing in a body”. Body grief is experienced each time we experience a permanent or temporary change in our body, loss of body autonomy, and perceived body betrayal.
