A Grieving Father and Daughter Journey to Burning Man to Find Healing [VIDEO]

Oprah Winfrey's recently aired, week-long documentary series, Belief, takes viewers on a journey around the world to see how different people find deeper meaning and connection with something greater than themselves.

In one episode, a father and daughter decide to journey to Burning Man in hopes of moving past the overwhelming grief from unimaginable personal loss. Howard Fallon and his daughter Shane lost half their family when Howard's wife and Shane's mother passed away from cancer and just 18 months later, Howard's youngest daughter and Shane's sister died in a plane crash.

"They are looking for a way to move through their grief and move on with their lives. They've decided to try something radical: Burning Man."

Their story is heart-wrenching, but their courage, love and openness is inspiring and unbelievably admirable.

"Either we’re going to both heal, or neither of us is going to heal."
