About this week’s episode

Charlene impressed me through the creativity with which she dealt with the sudden loss of her mother. She used her professional background as a curator and brought it with her when she took the time to empty the dream house her mother spent the last years of her life. Charlene describes the process of carefully honoring and making decisions about physical objects holding memories and deciding how she wanted to remember her mother and supports others to do the same.      

About this week’s guest 

Charlene Lam is a certified grief coach, speaker, and the founder of The Grief Gallery. After her mother died suddenly in 2013, Charlene leaned into her creativity and curatorial instincts to guide herself through grief. Since then, she’s curated and presented multiple exhibitions featuring the belongings of loved ones lost at international events in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, and London. Charlene believes we are ALL curators after a loved one dies, and developed her Curating Grief coaching framework to help people process grief in a creative, accessible way. She speaks about the power of creativity and storytelling for healthy grieving and post-traumatic growth. Originally from NYC, she's currently based in Lisbon, Portugal.
