Literature can help us explore our beliefs around loss, grief and faith from a safe distance. Please join me in a book reading and discussion of "Living Waters: From Harvard Halls to Sacred Falls."
When April is suspended from college, she moves to a Northern California commune seeking clarity about her next step, but when she becomes friends with Andrea, a psychotherapist dying of cancer, the direction of her life takes an unexpected turn. This book has been described as "cathartic and healing" by enthusiastic readers.
I am a psychotherapist, spiritual director, and former hospice bereavement director. In my first novel, I draw from my experience providing grief counseling to hundreds of clients, grieving my mother's death, and integrating a near death experience.
"The various threads that make this a true tapestry of our human condition are woven with a fine hand in this moving book. Characters . . . seem like people you might know, or might be in your own family. Bringing human development, spirituality, the tenderness of life's limitation as well as humor are all part of this work."
