In a powerful episode of The Teaching Journeys Podcast with host Dave Roberts, Tony Lynch, the founder of Memories of Us LTD and the Global Grief Network, shares his compelling journey from a tumultuous life of Grief, gang violence, and personal despair to finding healing and purpose. Overcoming early life adversities including abuse and near-death experiences, Tony faced profound loss with the deaths of his son, mother, and brother, propelling him into a significant period of suffering. A crucial turning point arrived during a contemplative moment in the desert, where he decided against ending his life, choosing instead to embrace a pathway towards recovery..

Tony’s Bio And Contact Information

Tony Lynch is the founder of the non profit Memories of Us LTD, Grief Support for Men, the Global Grief Network. And host of the Grief Let’s Talk About It podcast.

He started Memories of Us in 2019 after experiencing some significant losses, leaving him with almost no family and no one to help navigate this experience. Tony’s Grief became heavy and conflicting. On one hand, he was taught to suppress and not express, and on the other hand, his heart was torn into a million pieces.

Eventually, with the choices he was making, he lost everything and planned out his suicide. He did finally seek help only to find that there’s little or no support for men. He soon realized the importance of having a place where men can express their feelings, talk openly, but most importantly, be supported by other men who have had similar experiences.

You can find Tony on Instagram as Men’s Grief Support, on LinkedIn, as Tony Lynch, andon YouTube as the Grief Let’s Talk About It Podcast .

The Teaching Journeys Podcast can be found on your favorite podcast platforms.
