Related Ceremonies of Loss
Again, in Western culture, I feel that we limit ourselves in finding meaningful ways to bring closure for losses in our lives. We all face many griefs throughout our life journeys:
the loss of a valued friendship
the loss of a partner through divorce
the loss of a treasured home
the loss of a companion animal
the loss of a part of our body, or specific function (e.g. through motor vehicle trauma, surgery or stroke) ........... to name just a few.
I believe that any ritual which helps us to acknowledge our loss, no matter how large or small, goes a long way towards assisting healthy grieving, and future healing.
