Overview

Little Story with a Big Roar!

Praised by CNN and Sundance as "bold and courageous," and having "incredible heart,"
"How to Say Goodbye" by Chandra Jayne Copyright 2007 is one brave woman's account of the reunion with her mentally ill father after losing him in childhood to violent psychosis.

Her tender memoir fulfills the last rites prayer which says, "...WITH MY MOUTH WILL I MAKE KNOWN THY FAITHFULNESS TO ALL GENERATIONS."

A 9-11 memoir, "How to Say Goodbye" by Chandra Jayne Copyright 2007, relates terrorism to family violence, and redeems the spiritual value of schizophrenia. For most people, 9-11 was purely tragic, but for one woman, 9-11 was a catalyst to healing suppressed grief from childhood violence and reuniting with a mentally ill father that she feared. Treatment for suppressed grief has skyrocketed since 9-11. It's time to heal America's Soul.

An amazing true story, "How to Say Goodbye" has the heart power of "Tuesdays with Morrie," plus Wednesdays through Mondays! An intense story, personal violence of childhood is mirrored against the collective violence of 9-11. The focus then turns to re-inventing a triumphant relationship in present time.

As a culture, Americans don’t “do grief.” "How to Say Goodbye" will help every American make sense of the personal impact and ripple effect of 9-11. Every person in the USA has been or will be deeply affected by terrorism or grief about terrorism. The number of psychotherapeutic treatments continues to skyrocket as a result of the 9-11 damage to the American soul.

"How to Say Goodbye" is a beautiful first person account that journeys the long road from grief to healing, offering a much-needed road map for the grieving process. This story looks at violence and "terrorism" close up and replaces the negative labels of mental illness with a new "Medicine of Compassion." Loved ones are encouraged to keep the faith and search for the whole person underneath the labels that stigmatize their loved one. "How to Say Goodbye" offers encouragement to take a risk and recreate a wholesome connection with someone once considered “hopelessly lost.”
"How to Say Goodbye" is intended to bring about a compassionate awareness of mental illness and show how it affects loved ones, especially children. The story travels the full-circle mystery of love, loss, grief, hope, and healing.

Tributes to Brazilian John of God, and other great healers Nancy X, Dr. Saul Shaye, Andre Ripa, as well as Architect Michael Arad.

Life brought them back together, just long enough to learn "How to Say Goodbye.”

    Powerful. 5 stars for "How to Say Goodbye" by Chandra Jayne. Emotional impact is astonishing. A plea to stop violence. Poignant comparison of family terrorists to 9-11 terrorists. She tells all the bullies impacting her life, "You cannot stop my love." Compassion in Action. A rare gem by a rare writer.

    Amazing, Must-read!

    This spiritually rendered, heart-piercing memoir about the impact of family violence, pitted against the terrorism of 9/11, is iconic, deeply integrated story-telling of the first order. Chandra Jayne's "How to Say Goodbye" is and will be an American classic, and represents a courageous response to terrorists in this 9-11 heal-your-heart tale. Lots of wisdom on how to find and heal suppressed grief. A compassionate view of perpetrators, violence, and schizophrenia. Chandra Jayne writes of love and terrorism in a profound way. An eloquent spirit living a life dedicated to healing and love, against all odds.

    American Classic about 9/11, Iconic Memoir on Schizophrenic Father

    Compassion for the mentally ill..."How to Say Goodbye" by Chandra Jayne is a stunning, heartfelt memoir about reuniting with her schizophrenic father late in his life. Written in the context of the tragic 9/11 event, the author credits a photograph of Architect Michael Arad's WTC replacement design "Reflecting Absence" for igniting her healing crisis and helping her find treatment for suppressed grief. Chandra Jayne skillfully relates the effects of terrorism and early childhood family violence, stemming from the same unconscious, patriarchal urge to destroy the other. My sincere hope is that this will be made into a Made for TV special. Pure Gold! It is a valuable, redeeming spiritual message for America. The writing is heavenly, and Chandra Jayne is an author altogether unique. 5 stars for sure!
