Where We really Are, Is Inside The Waiting Room

It was fall 2007, in Massachusetts, the leaves were starting to change, and everything was looking almost eternal.  Nearly perfect. It was then, when I took on a full time job after the loss of my 35 year old husband making sure I could pay my bills, take care of my kids. Building a new […]

We Live In A Kind World

There will be arguments.  Disagreements. Misunderstandings.  And above all, loss of friendships and relationships during this time.  You will say angry things to people you love.  And they will do the same.  But it is the fear and grief that is really speaking. There will be lots of swearing. Aggression. Impatience.  And lots of self […]

We Already Know How To Eat, Sleep And Be Alone

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.
