Author Talk: Kathleen Paris in Conversation with Mare Chapman

1863 Monroe St

OVERVIEW

About the Book

Paris takes a systemic—mind, spirit, and body--approach in her book, Gentle Comforts: For Women Grieving the Loss of Their Beloved Life Companion, providing 50+ practical reflections on grief, journaling opportunities, and easy, healthy recipes. The reflections in Gentle Comforts follow a griever from the first weeks of loss onward. The topics are tailored to what a woman might need along her grief journey. For example, dealing with the barrage of mail and eating nourishing meals and hydration are essential issues in those first weeks. Clarifying bedrock values or reaching out to other grievers can come later.
