A supportive guide to navigating grief

The Grief Companion

The Grief Companion is a modern illustrated deck of cards that provides gentle guidance, support, and knowledge for those navigating loss and grief.

No two people grieve in the same way. The Grief Companion is a non-linear collection of cards that offers insights into the ever-evolving grieving process: providing thoughts and facts to help you feel grounded and seen; ideas on how to honour your loss and memory; and resources you can rely on as your experience of grief continues to shift. The cards can be used in a number of different ways. Simply pull an Insight, Action, or Prompt card every day or every week as part of a mindful intention, or during a difficult moment to be comforted. The cards are designed with dozens of actions and reflections that can be easily incorporated into your routine to guide and support you on your unique path.

With The Grief Companion, you’ll be empowered to better understand the grieving process and its effects as you learn coping mechanisms and, most of all, feel supported in your grieving experience. Each card is hand-painted by Ngaio with a watercolour pattern.
