No conversation is perfect

Some are more complicated, challenging, demanding—and rewarding. That's the kind of conversation we're looking for here. We'll address complex subjects like,

"How can I be an ally without screwing it up?"

"How can—or even should—I write a Land Acknowledgement?"

"How, in an era of privacy, consent, and police interference, can I help someone who may be suicidal?"

and more.

Imperfect Conversations will be led by relevant experts, professionals, masterminds and coaches, held via Zoom, and have an accessible fee structure (free to start, donations welcome). Sign up for email updates to find out more.

Transcripts of recorded conversations are available on request: email lauren@theimperfect.network.

ImpCon #2

Grief: Changing the narrative

Identifying and making peace with your grief

Friday, August 19, 2022
12pm–1pm ET


Lauren O'Malley hosts an empowering, interactive conversation with Naomi D. Williams, MPH, CHES. 

Participants are encouraged to join the conversation, camera on or off, via chat or live. Audio will be recorded for post-conversation access.

Many of us are familiar with the stages of grief—anger, denial, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Most of us associate grief with death or another irretrievable loss. We don’t hear much about non-death events which might create grief, nor the tools to help us process our feelings. Join us for the next Imperfect Conversation and learn how to identify your grief, and jumpstart the process of learning how to ‘be’ with it. We’ll also talk about how to change the narrative, set boundaries, and create your personal standards for your grief journey.

For more about grief, have a look at my blog post, Good Grief.
