Overview

Through words and music, this beautifully designed set offers a renewal of faith to anyone struggling with grief. The book’s heartfelt words, from some of the world’s greatest visionary leaders, are set to original soul-stirring music, creating an atmosphere of relaxation, insight, and healing. Created by the cofounders of the Companion Arts Foundation, Graceful Passages addresses themes of letting go, closure, expressing love, forgiveness, appreciation of life, and continuity of spirit from different perspectives and faith traditions. Catholic, Protestant, and Jewish clergy are represented as well as Native American, Confucian, and Buddhist voices, creating a truly multifaith resource. A compelling musical score, created by a pioneering healing music artist and award-winning composer, lovely still-life photographs, and elegant design create a gentle invitation for the reader and listener to reflect upon what matters most in life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In the midst of a burgeoning movement to transform America’s long-held denial of dying as a natural part of life, this CD emerges as an intimate tool for compassion, awareness, and support — for those facing their transitions, for their families, and for their caregivers. If death is the doorway to our most profound destination, Graceful Passages is a timely, essential resource for those upon the journey.”
Steve Simon, producer of the major motion picture What Dreams May Come

“A moving, heart-opening piece of work addressing psychological and spiritual issues that every human being needs to open to in their development.”
Gay Hendricks, PhD, author of Conscious Living

“How wonderfully welcome to my ears and soul! The music is truly beautiful and extraordinarily moving — it provokes a soft open heart.”
Joan Halifax, founder and director of the Upaya Institute

“Deeply moving. Touches the soul and makes contact with the universal. Should be in everyone’s CD library.”
Harville Hendrix, PhD, author of Getting the Love You Want

Graceful Passages, recognizing the movement from life to death as a period of rich and sacred transformation, accompanies that spiritual grounding with wisdom and compassion.”
Kathleen Dowling Singh, PhD, author of The Grace in Dying: How We Are Transformed Spiritually As We Die
