One foot in front of the other: Walking through grief
Grief is a very personal experience, and everyone has their own way of processing the death of someone they love. For three Tasmanian women, walking became a way to heal, as they each came to terms with the loss of their partners.
For Mary Dwyer, it was walking the Camino de Santiago. For Becca Lunnon, it was climbing mountains in Tasmania. For Gabrielle Gartrell, daily beach walks, and long overnight walks in Tasmania's wilderness enabled her to walk through her pain and find joy again.
I was fortunate to spend time with these three women and talk in-depth about their grieving process and the role walking had played in their healing. Although I had approximately 5 hours of recordings, the final edited piece ended up being just over 15 minutes.
