Are you mourning the loss of someone you love? Writer Madeleine L'Engle says of grief, in her book Two-Part Invention, that it "has to be worked through. It is like walking through water. Sometimes there are little waves lapping about my feet. Sometimes there is an enormous breaker that knocks me down. Sometimes there is a sudden and fierce squall. But I know that many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it." This grief ritual is for anyone who is walking through the pain of losing a loved one. Its gentle, contemplative exercises are a companion through the "many waters" of grief-from sadness to anger, fear to regret, into gratitude for the gifts of love and life. What is grief, after all, but a sign of the depth of our love? Those who enjoy writing will likely also find poems, essays, and/or stories emerging as they journey through this healing process.
