A Healing Year:
Daily Meditations for Living with Loss
When a loved one dies, it is true that those left behind go through common stages of grief. But it must be remembered that, while we all endure that particular grief which is common, each does so on his or her own time, and in his or her own way. This book addresses the individuality of loss, with the abiding concept that it is only through listening to our own lives and stories that we can begin to make sense of the effects the loss of a loved one has on our own stories. Paying attention to this, we can begin healing - one day at a time.

Alley, this book celebrates the power music has in our lives to bring a depth of emotion that few other things can.

Since the beginning of religious expression, people have been about the business of praying for those loved ones who suffer from pain and illness. What is more difficult, perhaps, is praying, not for another, but for ourselves. When we are those who are touched by illness or pain, we oftentimes find it more challenging to even begin. This books helps those who suffer to tap into that spiritual connection which has already been begun, helping to bring about healing and relief.
