“What is wrong with me?”

“Why am I still so sad?”

There’s nothing wrong with you. You just live in a culture that’s terrible at grief. Really. If you’re lucky enough to have a full-time job with benefits, you’d also be considered lucky to get 3-5 days of bereavement leave. That’s not enough time to plan a funeral, let alone deal with your grief.

And you do need to deal with your grief, or it will deal with you.

It does get better. Not just because of time passing, but because of what we do with our time.

Our tragedies and our pain need the same care and attention we give to our joys.

Nora McInerny’s TED talk about grief has more than 50 million views worldwide, because grief is as universal as it is personal. Dr. Anna Roth is a licensed holistic psychologist. The two of them have dedicated their lives to bringing the difficult truth of grief out of the darkness.

In this self-paced e-course, Nora and Dr. Anna will walk you through the essential tasks of grief, helping you build an understanding of your experience psychologically, physically and interpersonally. We’ll dig into essential truths that every griever feels, and what to do about them.

  • Grief Brain: If you’re not as sharp as you used to be, if you feel like you’re losing it? You are, kind of! And you’ll leave this course knowing how to work with this new version of yourself.
  • Loneliness: Where did everyone go? Why did the phone stop ringing? We’ll help you build the support system you need.
  • Anger: Grief is so, so much more than just crying. If you’re boiling with rage... we get you. We’ve got you.
  • What now? What does it mean to live fully in the face of loss? We will help you make a plan to reinvest in your life.

Grief is chronic, but it does get better.

NOTE: This e-course curriculum is based off of our Hot Young Widows Club e-course but has been re-imagined, re-reconfigured, and re-recorded for grievers of all types. If you previously signed up for the Hot Young Widows Club e-course, you might wanna skip this one, since the material is similar.


"Your course was (and is) the best thing I did for my grief. I have read, meditated, prayed, cried, yelled, sworn, slept, eaten and drank my way through this, but the most in control I have felt was taking your course."

"I have been grieving for over two years. I didn’t think there would be more to learn, but I was happily wrong. You presented new information that helped. Thank you both."

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start? How long does it last?
This e-course opens to enrollment on Thursday, March 19th and closes twelve weeks later, on Thursday, June 11th. But you can *start* the course whenever you want, because once you're enrolled, the course is self-paced! Work through the materials at your convenience. Take your time. We recommend you tackle one session per week *at most* so you have time to process in between sessions (because grief is some major stuff). Just make sure you enroll within that twelve-week window so you don't miss out!
Can I get a refund if I decide the course isn't for me?
We of course (pun intended) hope the course is helpful in your grief journey, and we've laid out the course curriculum ahead of time so students know what to expect when they enroll. We will not be giving out refunds after a student enrolls in the course.
Who is this course for?
This course was created for grievers of all types. Dr. Anna's expertise is in all different kinds of grief, so her professional approach (and the skills and tools she provides throughout the e-course) are universal. Also: Grief doesn't necessarily mean a death occurred. This course is applicable to folks dealing with ambiguous grief as well.
How do I know if now is the right time for me to take this course?
We ask that you do an honest assessment of where you are in your grief journey to determine if this class is most likely to be helpful or overwhelming. For most, the desire to avoid and the presence of intense pain and discomfort is to be expected. You will likely feel some hard emotions during this course, but also some good ones — hope, validation and a sense of reassurance that what you are going through is “normal.” However, timing is important. If you just lost your person and are currently in a state of shock, now might not be the best time to take in the information this course will provide. If you are experiencing frequent dissociation, are actively engaging in self-harming or addictive behavior, or are experiencing suicidal ideation, then you are in need of in-person professional help ASAP, and we do not recommend taking this course at this time. If you are on the fence, take a look at the course overview with your therapist to determine if the content feels manageable for you!
If I previously took your Hot Young Widows Club E-Course for grief, should I take this one too?
Probably not! The curriculum is based off of our Hot Young Widows Club e-course but has been re-imagined, re-reconfigured, and re-recorded for grievers of all types. If you previously signed up for the Hot Young Widows Club e-course, you might wanna skip this one, since the material is similar.
