Death Dying Grief And Mourning

Alchemy of Grief

$25.00

The Alchemy of Grief: Embracing Mourning through Grace is a soulful journey through the transformative properties of grief. Looking at how we approach grief in American society and previous literature published to date, this book presents a new grief model and explores how an experience of loss can be transformed through the alchemical processes of mortificatio, solutio, calcinatio, sublimatio, coagulatio, separatio, and coniunctio. Each has its own healing properties, and each shows up at just the right time. Drawing on alchemy as a support system for conscious grief work, Dr. Fidel-Rice interviews eight grieving souls whose stories powerfully illustrate the alchemical processes. This is an important book for any person dealing with grief and a must have for any therapist working with a grieving patient.

The Soul in Grief: Love, Death and Tranformation

$14.95

This book has been praised as a simple, elegant and poetic memoir of the mourning process that takes the reader deeply into the heart of love and loss and that beautifully describes that process in terms that mirror the seasons of nature. In his Foreword to the book, Thomas Moore has described it as "…a new way of imagination…a form of education of the deepest sort…a book where the soul will feel completely at home." An emotionally candid account of his wife's sudden and unexpected death, this is a book not only about grief as the possibility of homecoming, it is also a book about the enduring and transforming capacities of love.


When we encounter real tragedy in our lives that throws us into grieving, few of us find the way to deepen our mourning and let it radically reform us. The Soul in Grief asks us to put aside all psychological explanations and concentrate on discovering the loving embrace offered by the soul of the world.

Mortally Wounded: Stories of Soul Pain, Death and Healing

$19.95

What makes for a good death? In Mortally Wounded, a bestseller in Ireland, where it was first published, Dr. Michael Kearney reflects on his personal experiences working with the dying and shows us that it is possible to learn to die well. Starting from the premise that our fear of death is as much a cultural construct as an ancient fear of the dark, Kearney moves into the area in which it is possible to die well or "in one piece, psychologically speaking." Exploring some of the same territory as James Hillman and Thomas Moore, Kearney emphasizes the importance of going downward into soul, where we can find the elements of psychological wholeness, a healing balm to be applied to our mortal wound. Sensitive, intelligent, and brutally honest, Kearney opens a window on our darkest, most difficult subject, and lets some light in.

Jung on Death and Immortality (Encountering Jung Series)

$20.95

"As a doctor, I make every effort to strengthen the belief in immortality, especially with older patients when such questions come threateningly close. For, seen in correct psychological perspective, death is not an end but a goal, and life's inclination towards death begins as soon as the meridian is past."--C.G. Jung, commentary on The Secret of the Golden Flower


Here collected for the first time are Jung's views on death and immortality, his writings often coinciding with the death of the most significant people in his life. The book shows many of the major themes running throughout the writings, including the relativity of space and time surrounding death, the link between transference and death, and the archetypes shared among the world's religions at the depths of the Self. The book includes selections from "On Resurrection," "The Soul and Death," "Concerning Rebirth," "Psychological Commentary on The Tibetan Book of the Dead" from the Collected Works, "Letter to Pastor Pfafflin" from Letters, and "On Life after Death."

Dreams and imagery, self-reflection and body work, and both traditional and alternative medicine play distinctive roles in Woodman's recovery. Her personal treasury of art, photographs, and quotations-from Dickinson to Blake to Rumi-embellish this unique chronicle of a very personal journey toward transformation.
