Free online April 2015 edition of Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey:

When Dr. Joanne Z. Moore lost her husband, she found very little long-term support. After listening to the stories of widows and widowers who found a way to live joyful and meaningful lives after their loss, Moore founded the magazine, Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey. Visit to enjoy the free online April edition.

Joanne Z. Moore, PT, DHSc, a physical therapist from East Lyme, Connecticut, became a widow in 2009 after 37 years of marriage. She is using her husband’s life insurance to invest in the lives of others through her magazine. She says, “Pathfinder gives ideas to those who must follow a new life path. Friends and family of the widowed also benefit from Pathfinder because they want to know how to best support their loved ones. This magazine helps listeners be more comfortable as they provide condolences.”

The April issue of Pathfinder features how actor George Burns moved forward after Gracie died (and the secret he finally revealed to the public), recipes for cooking solo, and how the expressive arts help children and adults process grief. Articles also include:

  • For Men: 12 Ways To Know You’re Ready To Date
  • How to plant a memorial garden
  • Humor ...Like a Chocolate Chip Cookie
  • Health & Wellness - What if I get sick?
  • The Widows of 9/11 Inspire a Playwright
  • Poetry - Come Lie With Me
  • Zentangle® – Patterns to Peace
  • Dreams – A Guide to Wholeness
  • Jane Allen – Attracted to Community and Culture

Dr. Moore says, “Subscriptions to the paper version of Pathfinder are a great way to have this compassionate and positive magazine delivered to anyone who has experienced the loss of a spouse.” (Online edition of Pathfinder launched July 2014; print edition launched November 2015.)

Joanne Z. Moore, PT, DHSc., a noted speaker and workshop facilitator on end-of-life and survivor issues, is a member of Toastmasters International, and has achieved Distinguished Toastmaster level. She is the owner of Shoreline Physical Therapy, LLC, in East Lyme. Moore is the author of the soon-to-be released book, “Common Sense: Strategies for Living a Joyful and Meaningful Life after Loss.”
