Bereaved But Still Me
The Circus of Grief: A Love Letter in Motion
Show Notes

What?! A Circus of Grief? How can we take our grief in a new direction? Can we still enjoy life after the loss of a loved one?

Sherry Walling is an author and clinical psychologist. She’s also an amateur circus artist and she pulled together a group of circus artists to create an original circus in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month in May. 

Sherry lost her brother to suicide in  2019 (six  months after their father died of cancer). Afterwards, Sherry struggled to take care of her children, to work, or even to get out of bed. One of the only things that helped her to feel alive was her aerial hobby.

One of Sherry’s coaches, Lynn Lunny, of Stomping Ground Studio in Minneapolis, lost her brother to suicide in 2018. Together, they created the show, which they describe as a love letter in motion.

The show is a fundraiser for the National Association on Mental Illness (NAMI MN) and the official launch of her new book about grief, Touching Two World (to be released in July 2022). The book is part memoir and part guidebook of healing practices groundded in neuroscience and professional expertise.
