By remembering the lives and legacies of loved ones, we can take concrete steps to heal ourselves.
By remembering and celebrating how they lived, rather than how they died, we can enhance our resilience, compassion, and creativity.
During the promotional tour for her first book, The Living Memories Project: Legacies that Last, Dr. Meryl Ain saw that people grieving for loved ones, as well as professionals who work with the bereaved, needed a new approach and additional tools to help in the process of moving forward.
This determination to support others in coming to terms with the loss of a loved one led Dr. Ain to bring together resources, stories and to help professionals individuals, and bereavement groups transform grief into positive action and living legacies.
For most of us, losing a loved one will be the worst tragedy of our lives. And we struggle with how to best honor their memory–indeed, how best to remember them. This moving book not only is a tribute to some extraordinary individuals who have gone before us, but also serves as a guide for all of us who wish to remember those who have touched our lives with their love.
