About ANGE

Angela Morris_edited_edited.jpg

I am a massage therapist and author who writes about and reflects on the hard stuff that life throws at us, with a focus on grief and loss. I am currently living on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples (Victoria, BC). Through my hands on work, poems, essays, articles, resources, and book, Love Notes to Grievers, it is a privilege to connect with people traversing this complex and messy human experience—rooted in love and belonging. ​

It brings me to a quote that replays in my mind often, written by Joan Didion, about her husband's sudden death. 

"Life changes in the instant. The ordinary instant." 


Grief rocked every inch of my being, all aspects of my life, and every piece of my heart shattered into unchartered territory. ​My life changed in an ordinary instant, and the same for many others. It made me realize that the relentless quest to halt ageing, sanitization of death, fixation on happiness and naming our emotions as positive or negative makes us ill-equipped to be with our grief and hold ourselves and others in our darkest moments. That broke my heart all over again. Writing and supporting others in decreasing their suffering is my way of being with it all—connecting with others in the depths is the bittersweetness of what life brings is where I live and hold as sacred.
