Many women go through at least one in their lifetime, yet in our society abortion still remains a taboo subject. As lucky as we are in the UK to be able to have safe abortions, the nature of medical care has meant that while the process is quick and efficient, minimal thought that has gone into the aftermath. How has it affected our bodies? Is it acceptable to grieve? How can we honour the loss?

Honouring the Loss is a guide that covers a whole spectrum of time; whether you are about to have an abortion or had one many years ago, there are specific exercises, meditations, herbs and rituals for each stage of this journey.

Woven throughout is the wisdom of herbal medicine; as you discover which herbs to take for common physical or emotional imbalances, as well as learning how to make your own herbal teas, tinctures and oils to empower your journey back to health.

Rituals offer the chance to transform any emotions or feelings in a way of beauty, as they open a new doorway that leads you to a place of peace and acceptance for all you have been through.

About the Author(s)

India Elyn’s journey into herbal medicine began on her travels around Europe, where she met and lived with several wise teachers who opened the doorway into the plant world. This sparked a desire to step more fully onto this path, which led her to embark on a four year apprenticeship with medical herbalist and medicine woman Carole Guyett, where she was immersed into the world of plant spirits, ceremony and herbal medicine. After a decade of sitting in circle with women, and experiencing the transformations that can occur when we hold compassionate space for each other, India was inspired to create a sacred space within this book for women to connect with their wombs, feel supported and honour their experience of abortion.
