This book is not about the why or the what of death and grief. It is about the how. How to be with and use the pain of loss in order to gain a deeper understanding of what lies beyond this realm of reality. Opening to Dying and Grieving offers exercises and tools to encourage as well as enhance the process. The reader will learn that death is not a period, but rather a comma in our journey through life. It is a key to discovering the sacred treasure that lies within.
