Hi!

Glad to meet you…well virtually that is. If we were meeting in person, the first thing I would ask you is “what are you most curious about these days? What are you passionate about?” Since you can’t answer now, how about I go first?

I am incredibly passionate about reimagining and reauthoring our understanding of grief and loss, our most sacred shared human experience. I am curious about how our words, behaviors, stories, and cultural norms influence our grief journey, often in very damaging ways. I am wondering how that is contributing to our isolation and disconnection from one another. I am exploring the ways in which being vulnerable, authentic and curious about grief and loss might help us all feel stronger, more connected to love & joy, and a deeper sense of belonging. If you want to know more about WHY I’m curious and passionate about all of this, here’s the full story

What are you curious about? Please explore my website to see if there is something that resonates with you and contact me if you want to know more!

With love, Lisa Keefauver

Grief isn’t linear. Grief isn’t about finding closure. Grief is about embracing a new relationship with the love that passed. Grief transforms us and that can actually be a beautiful gift.

I dream of lost vocabularies that might express some of what we no longer can.

A beautiful question starts to shape your identity as much by asking it as it does by having it answered. You don’t have to do anything about it. You just have to keep asking, and before you know it, you will find yourself actually shaping a different life, meeting different people, finding conversations that are leading you in those directions that you wouldn’t even have seen before.
