Introducing, Nina and Joe, Seasons Centre’s Executive Grief Ambassadors. Both Nina and Joe have past grief experiences and are two inspirational individuals who have turned their grief into purpose and have joined our mission to build a community of hope and healing. Executive Grief Ambassadors are volunteers who raise awareness, share resources, and educate the public on how to build more supportive communities so that they can provide better grief support to their friends and loved ones.
Meet Nina! Nina Purewal faced an unexpected childhood tragedy, which inspired her mindfulness and meditation journey over twenty years ago. After climbing the corporate ladder for nearly a decade, she took a sabbatical and moved to California to unplug and live in an ashram for a year to further her learning of ancient wisdom and letting go. It’s been her greatest passion to help others find happiness through adversity. With that, she founded Pure Minds, a social enterprise that conducts mindfulness and meditation workshops and is the co-author of the International Bestseller, Let That Sh*t Go. 25% of revenue from the masterclass will go to the Seasons Centre for Grieving Children.

Meet Joe! Joe Lyons-Rising lost both of his biological parents to suicide at ages 6 and 10, leaving a deep impact on his childhood and teenage development. He was fortunate to have the support of family, friends, and therapists, but nothing like what Seasons Centre has been able to provide over the past 25 years. Joe is now the Founder & Chief Empathy Officer of Data Gives Back Inc. and is donating 25% of monthly revenue to Seasons Centre. Data Gives Back would not exist without the dream of helping to support Seasons Centre on a regular basis. The success of DGB is first measured in how they can help children, teens, and families find hope and happiness through the extremely painful experiences of grief.
