Wendy Black Stern

As Founder and Director of The Grief Support Network, Wendy dedicates her life’s work to supporting people to heal and transform through the process of grief. The Grief Support Network’s mission, programs and network of resources are inspired and informed by Wendy’s personal experience of loss and professional background as a yoga therapy practitioner, yoga instructor, yoga teacher trainer and group facilitator. Wendy has devoted the last 20 years to being a student and teacher of yoga. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and is certified as a yoga therapist, teacher, reiki practitioner and facilitator of yoga therapy groups for grief support and self-empowerment. In 2007, when her son Noah passed away, her grief propelled her into a process of profound transformation, which has taught her to live with more joy and gratitude in her life.
