Heart Guide
True Stories of Grief and Healing

Heart Guide Book Cover

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. (2018 IPPY Awards Gold Medal winner.)

“In this fine collection of personal interviews, Diana Ensign gently and skillfully ‘listens into speech’ a variety of honest, heartfelt, and healing stories. Her compassionate, non-judgmental and attentive ear enables each grieving soul to find its voice and to give expression to both pain and resiliency. The result is a gift to us all, as we come to understand that the most deeply personal insight turns out also to be the most universal truth: love bears all things.”
Rev. Dr. Bruce Johnson, Unitarian Universalist Minister

The journey to wholeness starts with the breath, an essential tool for any spiritual undertaking. Traveling Spirit then goes on to explore ancient spiritual techniques, from the more common practices such as yoga and meditation to the lesser-known practices of t’ai chi and shamanism. Find the joy in learning to apply spiritual tools in your daily life. There’s a link between practicing daily spiritual routines and building a more loving world community! This is the perfect book for anyone seeking help and guidance with human suffering.

“In Traveling Spirit Diana humbly with grace, clarity, and respect shares her spiritual healing journey with personal life experiences. Her openness engages a reader to relate to human suffering and to find peace and even joy. As she describes each tool, such as breath, meditation, yoga or sound (to name a few in the vast array) she provides clear instructions on how to begin to practice, how to feel encouraged as you begin, and how to continue for maximum benefits.”

When we courageously speak our truth
or quietly listen with compassion,
we are no longer strangers. We are friends.
