Hospice Journey: Free Web Sites for Patients and Their Families

I've just discovered yet another online network of support I'm pleased to share with you!  This one is specifically designed for terminally ill people and their families and friends, as they receive hospice care and face end of life choices and transitions.

After-Death Communication: A List of Resources

After Death Communication (ADC) is one of the most frequently discussed topics in the online Grief Healing Discussion Groups I moderate for Hospice of the Valley, and it is one I've written about in an earlier post.

In the online TVGuide I read that, in a segment broadcast on his program, television's Dr. Mehmet Oz "had quite a wild time watching [famed psychic medium John] Edward do his thing. In fact, the good doc says the experience changed his life!"

What are we to do with all this interest in ADC?

Using Art As a Path for Healing

I have discovered that, in my opinion, grief often inspires creativity.  When everything is hunky-dory, you just don't have the same compelling need to express yourself creatively, nor to do all the hard work it requires.  That is probably why so much of the world's great literature is about grief and loss. ~ Mary Semel, in A Broken Heart Still Beats

As amazing as it sounds, bereavement does have a bright side.  It is the "sweet" in the bittersweet journey of grief.  A nationwide niche of artists who know how to bring it out and celebrate the life of a loved one can be found at BereavementArtists.com -- a non-profit directory of artists who specialize in custom bereavement work.  From quilts, collages, portraits, jewelry, urns and more, the purpose of the site is to connect anyone, anywhere, to a desired art form and artist that speaks to their taste, need, and budget.
