Grieving---The Sacred Art: Hope in the Land of Loss by Lisa Irish.
Using creative imagery and current research, Ms. Irish offers the reader an adult understanding of the emotional world of loss and provides tools to mindfully participate in grief's healing role. Without denying the pain of loss, she offers educational and imaginative insights, which deepen the griever's understanding of the process of loss and helps the griever generate more compassion for his or her personal experience.
Primarily intended for those experiencing grief from the death of a loved one, many of the themes are transferable to the human experience of loss in all its forms. Stories from people in all stages of the grieving process serve as waypoints to help the griever navigate loss. Practical exercises and questions for reflections offer support on the tender and sacred journey through grief to healing.

Lisa Irish, MEd, MA has been offering retreats and presentations for over twenty-five years. As the bereavement coordinator for Yale-New Haven Hospital and the Hospital of St Raphael in New Haven, CT, she ministered to grieving individuals, groups and community organizations.
