A guide to achieving wholeness through the process and purpose of grief • Brings new understanding to the profound mystery of loss shared by all human beings • Offers sensitive and practical advice for experiencing grief and how to prepare for the healing journey that follows • Winner of the Independent Publisher Award in 1999 • New edition of Good Grief, published Oct 1995 We grieve only for that which we have loved, and the transient nature of life makes love and loss intimate companions. In Healing Through the Shadow of Loss Deborah Morris Coryell describes grief as the experience of not having anywhere to place our love, of losing a connection, an outlet for our emotion. To heal grief we have to learn how to continue to love in the face of loss. Embracing loss allows us to awaken our most profound connections to other people. Part of the grieving process is finding our place in the world again following a loss. We tend to define ourselves in relation to those we love--as “Laura’s mother,” “Jim’s wife,” or “Stacey’s friend.” The loss of a loved one is jarring to these foundations and can make us question our own sense of reality. In addition, the body must adjust to the sensory changes of having lost a part of our life, a part of our daily existence. Coryell draws attention to our society’s tendency to rank losses in a “hierarchy of grief.” She reminds us that all losses must be grieved in their own right and on their own terms, and that we must honor the “big” losses as well as the “small” ones. Paying attention to even the most minute experiences of loss can help us to be more in tune with our responses to the greater ones, allowing us to once again become part of the rhythm of life from which we have become disconnected.

"In Tarot Shadow Work, Christine Jette bravely takes the practice of tarot readings to new depths and places many people fear to go. She shows us how we can use the cards to trigger awareness in ourselves of troubling aspects of our lives and histories, and then go beyond discovery to use the cards as tools for healing. This is part of the work that needs to be done with tarot in this new century." —Rachel Pollack, author of 78 Degrees of Wisdom and the forthcoming Shining Tribe Tarot Deep within our psyches, the unconscious holds our forbidden feelings, secret wishes, and creative urges. Over time, these "dark forces" take on a life of their own and form the shadow—a powerful force of unresolved inner conflicts and unexpressed emotions that defies our efforts to control it. The shadow takes its shape from a menagerie of archetypes, each recognizable throughout time and around the world—troubling characters who thrive within our persona. The shadow is sabateur, martyr, victim, addict, sadist, masochist, or tyrant; all the dark figures that prey on the lighter qualities of the human personality. The shadow also represents those latent talents and positive traits that were banished from us at some time along our life path: artistic, musical, athletic, or creative talents. An undeveloped ability, a dream that has gone unexpressed, a fantasy of what might have been—these too make up the personal shadow, the lost parts of ourselves. Tarot Shadow Work shows you how to free yourself from the shackles of the shadow's power. Through tarot work, journaling, meditation, creative visualization, and dream work, you will bring the shadow into the light. This book is ideal for those who are in recovery from a serious addiction or illness, as well as any person seeking a deeper understanding of his or her true self. By exploring the dark and uncharted territory of the unconscious mind, you will work towards understanding and integrating the shadow. No prior knowledge of the

The loss of a child is the worst nightmare of any parent. The scar from this tragedy runs deep and sometimes hard to heal. In this book a woman tells of her journey through the dark pit of grief, how God pursued her into the pit. Leaning completely on God’s presence and comfort He was able to restore the joy-of-the-Lord by healing her completely from all pain, sorrow, and shame of tragedy. In the process she discovers Life altering truths about God. Yes, complete healing, without lingering grief symptoms is completely possible after the death of a child! “To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” —Isaiah 49:13 NLT

In the Shadow of God is a thoughtful and self-reflective poetic journey into the silent sounds, the shadows of loss and healing that pervade the lives of children of Holocaust survivors. Betzalel, whose name means "In the Shadow of God," was the artist chosen to build the Divine Sanctuary. The archetype of the creative personality, he was called upon to free the sparks of vitality from their darkened prisons and let them shine again. Like Betzalel, we too must gather our fragmented souls and weave them together to form a unified tapestry of meaning. This book of collected poems is just such an effort. Chaya Rosen allows us to accompany her through a myriad of encounters, reflections, and insights as she weaves together her own journey of human experiences into meaning.

This book is organized according to the same method I use when I teach and learn A Course in Miracles in my workshops. The teaching is reiterative; you can never repeat the principles of ACIM enough. I try to bring these principles to daily life to help the people who listen to me or who train with me to make the pertinent change in mentality, always under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
