Amazing new resource in Seattle!
from KotaPress

Saw a listing in the last PS Newsletter here in Seattle that mentioned a "grief" bookstore called Four Seasons Oasis. Couldn't believe my eyes! So I tracked down one of the partners and exchanged emails. Turns out that they are not only a bookstore, but an entire resource center to "rest in one's grief" as their mission states. I almost fell off my chair!!! Here's more info and if you find yourself in downtown Seattle, check them out!!!

Mission stated on their site:
As a culture we allow so little time to experience the inevitable and life changing effects of loss and grief. We strive to make sense of a new life; one in which we must integrate the death of a loved one, the response to a disaster, divorce or the effects of an illness. There seems to be few places to rest in one's grief. In response to this need, Four Seasons Oasis was created. We provide a retail service that offers over 700 adult and children book titles, over 350 card designs, hospital gift baskets, pet loss support and other appropriate gifts. We also render professional services such as counseling and bodywork in a suite above the retail shop. Our commitment is to provide a comforting, kind and restful environment that allows the presence of grief while offering helpful resources.
