Laughter and Grief, With Mark Liebenow
Thursday, May 19, 2016
Of the many responses you may expect to hear from a griever, laughter can be the most surprising. It is common, however, for people to find humor and use laughter in times of sorrow—both as a defense mechanism and as a coping strategy. On today’s journey From Grief to Grace, award-winning author, poet, and essayist Mark Liebenow joins host Chaz Wesley to honor a history of cultures and religions that boasts ministries of fools, clowns, humor, and compassion—all of which provide evidence that when we can laugh at death, then death doesn’t win.
