I recently subscribed to Living With Loss Magazine. I have always enjoyed magazines, and over the years my tastes have changed substantially. Nowadays, I find most magazines to be full of fluff, and void of the meaningful stuff of life. Considering this, I have been searching for a magazine that is full of heart, and full of wisdom. What drew me to Living With Loss Magazine is that one of my favourite “death and dying gurus” is a regular columnist – Alan Wolfelt. And, quite simply, it’s a magazine dedicated to the rawness of loss and life changing experiences. This is something I will never become tired of.
Living With Loss Magazine is a compilation of submissions from the general public and from professionals working with those who are bereaved. The magazine has been created with the intention to provide hope and healing to the mind, body and spirit, and all their articles reflect this. They rely on stories from their readers for columns like “The Gift of Experience,” to share stories among readers that may inspire others. They print moving poetry, that speaks directly to the heart. They even have a column called “Validations” that is created for those bereaved people who want to share stories of their connection with their loved one beyond death…a phenomenon that many people have experienced….
Regular contributors to the magazine include specialists in the fields of death, dying, loss and bereavement including: MDs, Ph.Ds, counsellors, spiritual directors, nurses and occasionally lawyers and insurance providers. The contributing columnists have such knowledge and wisdom to share – based on experience, science and the arts. Their dedication to serve those who are suffering is obvious, as their author biographies indicate many professional and personal endeavours into healing modalities for the mind, body and soul.
A yearly subscription for Canadians is about 50.00. I made my order and had my first issue mailed that same day. I am truley greatful the people at Bereavement Publications Inc. have dedicated their time and committed to creating a magazine that honours death, loss and bereavement – and creates an open forum for sharing and healing.
If you are interested in ordering an issue of the magazine, or to subscribe, you can do it here.
…and…stay tuned, I’m currently working on an article for submission about yoga as a healing modality for grief….maybe soon you’ll see it in print!
