Allison Gilbert, Author - March 1st - 3rd

Allison Gilbert is a returning workshop leader at The Lodge at Woodloch!  An Emmy award-winning journalist and one of the most thought-provoking and influential writers on grief and resilience, Gilbert has written numerous books including the groundbreaking, Passed and Present: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive. Her stirring work exposes the secret and essential factor for harnessing loss to drive happiness and rebound from adversity. Passed and Present reveals 85 practical and innovative ways to remember and celebrate the family and friends we never want to forget. The book has been featured in People Magazine and Arianna Huffington and Maria Shriver have tweeted about it. O, the Oprah Magazine named Gilbert a contributor for her inspiring essay, "The Reflection Effect," about the power of nostalgia to improve lives and help individuals and families thrive.

Gilbert’s other books include, Parentless Parents: How the Loss of Our Mothers and Fathers Impacts the Way We Raise Our Children and Always Too Soon: Voices of Support for Those Who Have Lost Both Parents. She is also co-editor of Covering Catastrophe: Broadcast Journalists Report September 11, the definitive historical record of how broadcast journalists covered that tragic day. The landmark book was turned into a documentary by the U.S. State Department and distributed to embassies and consulates around the world. Gilbert is the official narrator of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum’s core historical exhibition audio tour and her voice is introduced by Robert De Niro on the Museum’s “Witnessing History” tour, the only female journalist to be so honored. On Gilbert’s popular grief and resilience blog, she features Q & A’s with some of the most notable names in our culture today including, Arianna Huffington, Jon Stewart, and New York Times bestselling authors Gretchen Rubin and Christina Baker Kline. She is a sought-after expert on grief, loss, and resilience, appearing on TODAY, CNN, and MSNBC.

Gilbert is a popular workshop leader and keynote speaker, helping individuals transform personal and professional setbacks into opportunity. She has spoken to such diverse groups as Google, Time Warner, National Association for Female Executives, The New York Open Center, and Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. Gilbert graduated from Georgetown University and lives outside New York City. She and her husband have a son and daughter – a college freshman and an 11th grader.

Passed and Present: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive
8:30pm
The satirical newspaper, The Onion, published an article several years ago with the headline: “World Death Rate Holding Steady At 100 Percent.” This is funny, of course, because even though loss impacts everyone, too many people avoid talking about it. Yet here’s the uplifting truth: Discussing loss, and taking intentional steps to keep memories of loved ones alive, drives happiness and healing. In Gilbert’s fun and meaningful presentations this weekend, you will: Learn how to repurpose a variety of inherited items—jewelry, clothing, photographs, letters, and other mementos — with the purpose of creating unique and meaningful keepsakes; Tap into the power of technology—scanners, apps, websites, smartphones, and more — to integrate a loved one’s presence and loving guidance into our daily, busy digital lives; Mark special occasions, such as a loved one’s birthday or anniversary, with purposeful and poignant celebrations; Plan trips, whether actual or virtual, to destinations around the world for opportunities to remember.
