Who I am

My name is Breeshia Wade

I am the author of the 2021 publication, Grieving While Black: An Antiracist Take on Oppression and Sorrow, which was rated one of the best 9 books on grief, and is currently required reading in multiple university graduate courses.


My background and training as a Zen Buddhist chaplain employed by hospices and hospitals inform my approach to using grief as a tool for social transformation.

What I do

I empower universities, professionals, and organizations to use a grief-informed approach to social transformation.

What I believe

I believe in Elemental Grief™, a model of grief that includes fear of (future) loss.


When advocating for social transformation, the unexplored fear of loss faced by those who are losing the benefits of privilege must be addressed to alleviate the grief of those experiencing injustice.
