ABCs of Grief: Reclaiming Life After Loss by Loretta McCarthy

Grief touches every life. Journeying through the pain of loss is never easy and it is not a journey we would choose to take. Yet at different points in our life we are all called to walk this path and we need help along the way. Loretta McCarthy provides practical wisdom, simple suggestions, and intriguing insights for those who are mourning the loss of a loved one. Remembering her own grief process, she honors the reader with short succinct chapters that present invitations, not expectations, of how we move slowly toward reclaiming our life after loss. The power of this book lies in its gentleness--you could share with a friend who is in the throes of grief and trust that its wisdom would provide comfort and solace... or keep it by your bedside for those times when grief returns to touch your life once again.

About the Author

Loretta McCarthy (Earthwalker) is a seeker, writer, grief counsellor, and spiritual guide. She is deeply engaged in tending and cultivating the garden of her own soul and empowering others to do the same. The loss of her two brothers in 2012 had a profound impact on Loretta's life. After processing her own grief Loretta turned to writing and co-facilitating Hospice bereavement groups as a way of sharing with others the insights her journey of mourning gave to her. Also in 2014 she was initiated as a Ritual Elder of the Phoenix Project ( an international 12-week grief recovery program offered by Dr. Jack Miller).

Presently, Loretta lives on an eleven acre walnut orchard, cares for the trees, the chickens and the other living beings at Dancing TreePeople Farm. She continues her service to those on the life's journey by offering Sacred Listening sessions and Healing Our Loss Experiences to individuals and groups.

Loretta's life work has included teaching, administration, listening, prayer presence and spiritual direction. For five decades, Loretta served as a Sister of the Blessed Sacrament - ministering within urban settings in New Orleans, New York, Cleveland and Washington D.C. , founding Maisha House of Prayer in inner-city Atlanta, and holding key positions in congregational leadership and formation.

Loretta holds a Masters in Religious Education from Catholic University of America, and is certificated through the Institute for Spiritual Leadership, Sophia Center and the Phoenix Project. Loretta is also a certified Permaculture Designer.
