We are never meant to grieve in solitude [...] Indigenous paradigms have a much better understanding of the role of grief and suffering as part of the human experience. Grief is balanced by a cosmic vision that doesn’t put human species as the be-all and end-all of creation. When we take our place as one of the beautiful beings among millions of other beings, human and non-human, then our grief is released from the individualistic isolation that marks the modern experience. In so doing, grief can be a work of love and compassion; a work of restoring balance and harmony – all of which are done in the context of community. - Leny Mendoza Strobel, The Indigenous Turn in a Filipina Narrative, 2017
