In Narrative Therapy, the question is how do we "re-member" the lost person back into our lives? We can do this by a visit to the cemetary, lighting a candle, making a memorial contribution in the person's name, telling a story about them, listening to their favorite song, cooking their favorite meal, using a skill they taught us, etc.
I love Marlin Lavenhar's sermon on the Day of the Dead when he refers to the "Mighty Cloud Of Witnesses."
I love the question of the day. I subscribed so I can get it every day. Thanks for doing this. I love the blog and get a lot out of it.
My therapist told me that the physical body dies but the person's spirit lives on in the stories we tell about him and her. This idea made me feel a lot better.
