“I have recently participated in a workshop about loss with Sasha Bates ahead of the publication of her book, Languages of Loss.
As a therapist, working with bereaved clients, I wanted to learn what is often the hardest challenge of all: finding the language around grief, death, loss and bereavement.

Sasha shone a tender and hopeful light through the dark clouds of this painful topic. In her respectful, humorous, intelligent and honest manner she deeply engaged a room full of people who laughed, cried, opened up and shared their experiences too.

Sasha taught us not to shy away from the topic and to invite any feelings and emotions into the dialogue. She shared with us her own experience of coping with loss through poems and intimate personal journaling.

I want to wish you Sasha good luck with your book and in your healing and inspirational journey.”


Sharon Kaplansky, psychotherapist
