Elyse5 Stars Out Of 5Expertly Curated ResourceApril 17, 2019ElyseKim Langley has expertly curated a collection of poems to soothe the soul, to foster connection, and to ground one's self in the deeper meaning within the inevitable broken and wounded pieces of life. All throughout this book I found resonance, newness of perspective, and familiar old wisdom inviting me to reflect and slow down with my own experiences as well as those of my loved ones. If you are a lover of poetry, this book is for you. If you are unfamiliar with or intimidated by poetry, this book is for you. Not only has Ms. Langley gathered a treasury of poems on grief and loss, she offers her own reflection, poses questions to guide your further contemplation, and brings it home with an extra and apt quotation for each and every poem. These additional pieces really do make it feel like the book is a companion and guided meditation on grief and life- not just a compilation of poetry on loss.
As a chaplain and spiritual director myself, this book will soon become a go-to tool in my ministry toolkit. Especially if you've ever wanted to know how to use poetry in your ministry, counseling, or therapeutic setting of any kind but weren't quite sure how to do so, this book is for you. Ms. Langley also includes a variety of mindful activities to use with the poems.
I honestly can't recommend this book enough. Whether you or some you love or work with is grieving- which if we're honest includes everyone!- this book is worth every penny.
