East Lyme, Conn.— The new magazine for widow/ers, Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey, is now available in print.
“Pathfinder is designed to support widows and widowers as they strive to live joyful and meaningful lives after loss,” says publisher Dr. Joanne Z. Moore, a physical therapist from East Lyme, Conn. “It gives ideas to those who must follow a new life path.” Moore became a widow herself in 2009 after 37 years of marriage.
Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey offers advice on money, health, home, travel, friendship, dating, and return to work, in addition to inspirational articles on spirituality, art, poetry, and developing new hobbies. It includes stories of modern and famous historical people who have either lived the widowed stage of life well or have struggled.
The first print issue of Pathfinder features:
• Dr. William Petit of Connecticut, whose wife and daughters were murdered in a home invasion, and the foundation he created in their memory.
• Gambling – a fairly common pastime for widow/ers, which can lead to devastation when entertainment becomes an addition.
• Chocolate king Milton Hershey, widowed for 30 years and founder of a school built for less fortunate children in honor of his late wife.
• Exercising over the age of 50.
• Pathfinder also features the health benefits of chocolate, couponing, the importance of gratitude, strategies for making new friends, poetry, a book review, and an introduction to retreat as a spiritual practice.
