This Week's Reflection
Sunday March 7th, 10:45am
Grief, the Way Forward
Dr. BJ Miller
Service Leader: Rev. Linda
How do we square the facts of our past with our hopes for the future? Grief has long gotten short shrift in the West. Medicine wants to pathologize sorrow; society wants to avoid it. Either way, we spend too much time trying to circumvent our nature, and we are paying the price. Maybe it’s time to revisit this fundamental human endeavor.
Dr. BJ Miller is a longtime hospice and palliative medicine physician and educator. He currently sees patients and families via telehealth through Mettle Health, a company he co-founded with the aim to provide personalized, holistic consultations for any patient or caregiver who needs help navigating the practical, emotional and existential issues that come with serious illness and disability. BJ has given over 100 talks nationally, and internationally, on the topics of death, dying, palliative care and the intersection of healthcare with design. His 2015 TED Talk: “Not Whether But How” (aka “What Matters Most at the End of Life”), has been viewed over 11 million times and his work has also been the subject of multiple interviews and podcasts, including Oprah Winfrey, PBS, The New York Times, The California Sunday Magazine, GOOP, Krista Tippett, Tim Ferriss and the TED Radio Hour. His book, A Beginner’s Guide to the End, was co-authored with Shoshana Berger and published in 2019.
