The Centering Corporation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing education on grief and loss for professionals and the families they serve. The Centering Corporation was founded in 1977 by Joy and Dr. Marvin Johnson. The Centering Corporation has done remarkably well in the industry, with a current compilation of over 500 resources for grief and loss including their own magazine - Grief Digest.
As a lot of you know, we lost our youngest son, Mason, in 2011. The grief for us is still fresh and new, and probably will be for awhile. Centering Corporation sent me some great materials that have been very useful to me.
The Spiritual Woman By Harriet Hodgson
Women are very aware of their emotions. Sometimes we're so happy we think we will burst. Other times we're so burdened we fear we will collapse. How can we go on? This collection of 365 quotes, one for each day of the year, will energize you. Every quote is a spark of hope. As you read them, the spirit of woman starts to take shape. By the end of the book this image is virtually complete. Let this collection of quotes - and the spirituality within you - lead you to a rich and fulfilling life.
Hitch Your Hope To A Star By Nan Zastrow
In a world complicated by fear and grief, we have difficulty focusing. We have lost the energy and spirit that allows us to move forward. We look for any spark of hope that will give us inspiration. We want to believe in all the possibilities of a future not yet written. In this book, Nan demonstrates the power of words. She creates vivid pictures that allow the reader to be present to the moments she describes. She writes about rebuilding identity after loss, transformed relationships, and the small victories leading to hope. Read this book in doses so you can feel and absorb the "hope." Give this book as a gift to someone who needs reassurance that we are resilient human beings who survive the roller coaster experiences of life, and grow from our experiences.
