Light After Loss: A Spiritual Guide for Comfort, Hope, and Healing

by Ashley Davis Bush

From the office of seasoned grief counselor Ashley Davis Bush, Light After Loss is an essential guide to grief. Based off Bush's seminal “Transcending Loss” grief model, this book provides an inclusive spiritual light to illuminate the darkness and set you on a healthy course of navigating the lifelong journey of integrating loss into life.

Grieving is a universal yet disorienting and devastating experience. But like the ancient Japanese artform of kintsugi which repairs broken pottery with golden lacquer, grief is healed by filling the cracks in your life with light, creating beauty from brokenness. Embracing a higher perspective makes the journey more bearable, the experience more meaningful, and the future more expansive.


— Advice on how a spiritual perspective can accelerate your personal healing, offering specific ways to soothe a broken spirit.

— Five specific “Light-Shift Practices” that integrate concepts and facilitate the healing process at the end of each chapter.

— Tips on the shift process: a redirection from pain and suffering to the sacred qualities of compassion, love, connection, gratitude and transformation.
