The Bag Carrier

They will grab your arm as you are walking down the street minding your own business.  They will yank it a little, not too much at first.  When you don’t stop walking, they will jump in front of you loudly speaking.  Forcing you to stop and listen to their expectations of you.  You see, they […]

The Deep Sound of Life After Loss

I wish I could play the piano.  If I did I would find a special key for rejection.  And it would sound like a drumming sound.  Piercing through every layer of my heart.  It would be probing.  And lengthy.  It would allow the ears to also know how it feels to be turned down.  I […]

The Imperfect Self During And After Loss

Who you become while you suffer a loss, is imperfect.  The personality that comes through when you are grieving will make plenty of mistakes.  It will have an ego.  A brutality in your words. A mean streak in your exchanges.  A hatred of your circumstances.  A self dance that hurts in every move.  It is […]

More About Christina

Christina Rasmussen is an acclaimed grief educator, the author of Second Firsts and Where Did You Go?  She is also the host of The Dear Life Podcast.

She is the founder of The Life Reentry Institute and has helped countless people break out of what she coined the “waiting room” of grief to rebuild their lives through her Life Reentry Model. With this, she introduces a new model of grief based on the science of neuroplasticity. She describes grief as a catalyst for redefining identity, and outlines the process of “reentry”, or returning to life.

Her mission is to change the way we grieve, the way we live, and how we define our potential in this life, and the hereafter. She has consulted on the 2019 movie short Dreamwisher and currently working on her very first work of fiction as she believes that big change in an industry that has been left behind requires not only education and training through traditional settings but also in media, movies and entertainment.

Her Institute’s mission is to bring forth a new way of speaking about and embracing loss within the medical, corporate and social environments.

Her work has been featured at ABC News, Washington Post, Maria Shriver and the White House Blog. She currently works and lives in Austin, Texas with her husband Eric, their daughters and their two dogs.
