Reading List

 

 

All of these books are invaluable when discussing loss, grief and healing.

 

 

 

 

A good place to start is with Healing After Loss. This small treasure is designed to be read one essay a day, one day at a time. You will be the recipient of wisdom and grace as each entry offers insight along with a moment of stillness. The Book of Awakening, while not dealing with grief per se, is another book wherein you read an essay for the day. Each one is inspired and inspiring, gently reassuring and hopeful. Neither book requires more than five minutes of your day, but the words and message will linger throughout. Most of the other books truly require your attention when you are ready to read something more thought provoking. The Untethered Soul, the last one on the list, though not a book about loss, is a book that will help you to let go of your over-thinking mind and allow you to rest in your seat of consciousness where you will be better able to deal with the challenges you now face.
