Conference Blog: The 4,032-Mile Pilgrimage
At the 7th International Conference blog, Eboni Green discusses facilitating the move from complicated spiritual grief toward spiritual wellness.
Complicated spiritual grief is usually precipitated by the loss of someone who is significant in your life or by a quest for deeper understanding about the meaning and purpose of life and results in answers to your questions that are unsettling, nonsensical, or both. Although not all loss leads to spiritual questioning, it is common to experience complicated spiritual grief if you have cared for a loved one with a debilitating or terminal illness, if your loved one experienced a great deal of pain, or if you have unresolved feelings associated with your loss.

Dr. Eboni I. Green is a registered nurse and family caregiver, and holds a Ph.D in human services with a specialization in health care administration. She currently serves as faculty for the College of Health Sciences at Walden University, where she teaches graduate courses in the health care administration program. She is a presenter for the 7th International Conference.
