The Next Happy: Let Go of the Life You Planned and Find a New Way Forward
When the best option is to let go of the life you planned for yourself and find a new path, a world of possibilities can surprisingly open up.
Written by Jane F. Maynard, whose service includes time spent in interim ministry, Transfiguring Loss: Julian of Norwich as a Guide for Survivors of Traumatic Grief is an exploration of the works of fifteenth-century mystic Julian of Norwich's theology and spirituality, and modern-day applications of Julian's wisdom to aid and comfort those suffering from terrible grief and loss - such as from large-scale disasters like the September 11th attacks or losing a loved one to AIDS. Chapters discuss the theological and psychological analysis of multiple loss, as well as pastoral praxis for traumatic loss. A gentle, thoughtful search for spiritual insights into appropriate counseling and comfort, written in plain terms for readers of all backgrounds. Especially recommended for church and pastoral libraries, and as supplemental reading for ministers, pastors, and religious counselors.
