Holding Sacred Space for Grief: Two Readings – One Theme

On Sunday September 7, 2014, Anora McGaha and Mary Ann Bumbera held a reading at the Joyful Jewel on the topic of grief.

Joyful Jewel Owner, Mariah Wheeler wrote on Facebook about it:

“What a wonderful reading by Mary Ann Bumbera and Anora McGaha at the Joyful Jewel yesterday. Their books about “Holding Sacred Space for Grieving” were very well received. This topic and these two wise women brought in quite a crowd to hear about dealing about an issue seldom written about. We learned ways to cope with loss whether of an animal companion, a lost love or other occasions of grief, and in the process learn how to live.”
