Overview

James Van Praagh's first two books, both New York Times bestsellers, have been a powerful healing force for millions of readers. Using his talents as a medium, Van Praagh has not only helped the bereaved reach their lost loved ones and find peace but he has also illuminated the mysteries of death, the afterlife, and rebirth. His new book, Healing Grief, will once again draw from his compelling and uplifting readings, but with a new and special purpose- to show what the spirit world can teach us about the grieving process itself.

While grief is clearly a natural response to death, it should also properly accompany life's other difficult passages, including times of transition, the loss of a relationship, or even the loss of a pet. Healing Grief begins with chapters that each examine a specific kind of loss - death of a parent, a spouse, or a child, the end of a marriage, or the onset of a troubling life change, such as unemployment or grave illness - and considers the particular bereavement issues it may engender. The book also offers advice on explaining death to children, on distinguishing healthy from destructive grief, and on harnessing the powers of healing through special exercises, meditation and affirmations. Healing Grief should be, in Van Praagh's words, "a manual for grieving well," offering an inspiring new perspective on grief from a world-renowned medium who has become an expert at helping people cope with unresolvable sorrow.

This book was helpful when I lost my father 3 yrs. ago. It was reccommended by my local bookstore soon after I lost my father. I had not been a fan of James Van Praagh before reading this but this book hooked me and I have since read many of his other books. So far this is my favoreite one in that it really did help during the healing process. I just lost my sister 3 months ago so I plan on reading this book soon to help me through that process again. I highly reccommend this to anyone grieving!!!

I found this book very theraputic and would recommend this to anyone who has lost someone special. James has hit the nail on the head when he addresses many situations that people go through when they are grieving. James has so many gentle words of encouragement that I will keep with me for ever. I will just share one thought I have taken with me from the book. When you believe your heart is broken the cracks will let even more light into your life.

My 30 year old son died from cancer September 10, 2012. There are just no words to describe the loss except to say the universe feels out of balance to me now. On James Van Praagh's Facebook page was a message of a new book to come out later in 2013. I posted a reply that I was in grief counseling at the time and would like to have the book to read at that time. The author, James Van Praagh, replied to me and recommended this book. It has helped so much! Just like all his other books but this time it is special. I feel my son around me and know he wants me to be happy. I am trying. Thank you to James for this book and the help it offers. So, yes I highly recommend this book.

I cried and cried and healed and healed! I have learned that it is OK to grieve in my own time. I thought I was so alone with my feelings until James made me realize I was totally normal. Needless to say, I am his most devoted fan.
