"We do not write in order to be understood; we write in order to understand." (C. Day-Lewis)
Writing is one of the oldest and most effective means of self-exploration, self-expression, and self-discovery. In this new guided journal, Mary Potter Kenyon offers readers an opportunity to reflect on the meaning and significance of loss and allows the griever to sort through all the conflicting emotions that arise after a death. By interweaving her own experiences of loss, the proven research behind writing as a method for healing, and carefully chosen quotes, Kenyon gives readers space to express the feelings that are sometimes too painful to speak aloud.
