Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Robert is introducing us to a new way of imagination that has direct relevance to our everyday situation, especially to its strong emotions and scarcity of meaning...it is a form of education of the deepest sort, the kind that happens when we are forced to find a way to live in the midst of grief."
-From the Foreword, by Thomas Moore

"The Soul in Grief shows how moments of grief can help us move beyond false constructs of the ego...it expands our idea of psychology to situate life and the soul within the greater fabric of the living universe."
-David Fideler, editor of Alexandria: A Journal of Cosmology, Philosophy, Myth and Culture

    Echoes my own grief at the loss of my gay soul-mate

    Two things impressed me about his book. The first was that the author honestly & truthfully deals with his grief as an extremely personal & individualized experience ¿ the anguish, the depression, the ache, the doubt, the inconsistency; the unwanted & unhelpful push by society, friends, religion which really want us to not remind them of grief; the moments of relief, forgetfulness & grace, etc. The second was that, in his honesty, I was found a very many of passages which echoed exactly my own grief even though the author lost his long-time friend, lover & wife but I lost my friend, gay lover, soul- & life-mate.
