Gail Rosen

       Consultant, Facilitator, Educator, Storyteller for Hospice and Bereavement

Hospice Bereavement Camps

   for Children, Teens, and Adults

“Gail is a tremendous asset to our outdoor bereavement programs. As much as she uses her voice to tell the stories, she uses her heart to listen. Because we encourage our attendees to begin to tell their stories of loss, having Gail model storytelling paves the way for our clients to do the same.


She is sensitive to the needs of each program and assesses the group before telling an appropriate story. Gail offers stories with professionalism, compassion, and care.”

In Hospice bereavement retreats and camps, stories

  1. welcome people and honor them for choosing to enter into the work of grieving and healing.

  2. create community and common ground f
    or sharing personal stories and feelings.
  3. serve as a valuable “launch point” for discussion.

  4. validate and normalize all of the feelings associated with grief.

  5. compliment art, movement, drama therapy and ritual.

  6. enrich closing ceremonies or memorial services.
