True Stories of Grief and Healing
Whether we have lost a parent, child, spouse, sibling, grandparent, or significant person in our life, death of a loved one can send us reeling. The personal stories here highlight the myriad and unexpected ways people cope with real life struggles when facing traumatic loss. By collectively sharing our most vulnerable accounts of grief, we build a safe harbor around the subject of death — even when the stories are heartbreakingly difficult. When facing loss of a loved one — from suicide, serious illness, overdose, medical mishap, accident, or violent assault — WE CAN HEAL.
“Frank, warm, unflinching, and compassionate—a heartfelt work that explores sorrow and healing.” —Kirkus Reviews

This is the perfect book for anyone seeking help and guidance with human suffering. It offers a path to happiness. The path begins within.
Traveling Spirit is an honest, practical, and transformational blueprint for living a joyously spirited life.” —Virginia R. Mollenkott, Ph.D., author
