When caught in a fog of grief, how does one restore hope to their world? It’s been said that without grief there would be no need for hope.

Lynda Cheldelin Fell's riveting presentation weaves her own story through double tragedy into the 10 tenets of happiness that strengthen inner resilience and engage the mind, body and soul in modalities that cultivate joy, pleasure and laughter—and create a future powered by hope after losing someone you love.
