Meaningful Moments:Ritual & Reflection When a Child Dies
The book is a treasure for those who are looking for literature on “care for the caregiver,” including an entire section devoted to “Ritual for Caregivers.” As Dr. Danai Papadatou writes in her foreword, “These ‘meaningful moments’ are not measurable, but fully lived; they render the reality of loss more bearable, meaningful, and—whenever experienced as ‘extraordinary’—are carried in memory forever.”
Rana Limbo and Kathie Kobler wrote Meaningful Moments: Ritual and Reflection When a Child Dies to shed light on the tender moments between children, parents, and caregivers. Known for their writing, speaking, and research that focuses on relationship, the authors skillfully bring together elements of relationship, reflection, ritual, suffering, and hope and introduce a guided approach to co-creation of ritual. This thought-provoking and spiritually rich book features stunning photography and reflection points that allow the reader to pause and consider the book’s content juxtaposed with the reader’s own experiences. Parents of a child who died at any age will find stories from other bereaved parents, which will provide ideas and inspiration for honoring their child’s memory.
