Healing After Loss: Daily Meditations for Working Through Grief – Martha Whitmore Hickman


While this audio recording can result ‘severe’, there is much I relate to and some really good advice in the author’s words, which I was open to listening to because she is also a bereaved mother. I got more out of it the second time I listened to it. Take what you are ready to accept at the stage of your grief you are in.

After the loss of a loved one, once the services are over and the relatives and friends have gone home, we are left to enter a strange new land, where someone who has given meaning to our life is gone. Drawing on her own experience of losing her 16 year-old daughter in a horse-riding accident as well as that of others, author Martha Whitmore Hickman presents a year’s worth of short reflections and advice for people dealing with this profound loss, offering solace and illuminating a way forward.

From January 1 to December 31, each day’s meditation considers a meaningful quotation or passage on grief or suffering, with sources ranging Shakespeare to Emily Dickinson, from the Christian Bible to Hindu proverbs. A thoughtful, sensitive collection, Healing After Loss will comfort and inspire listeners on their journeys through grief toward recovery.
