|Awakening from Grief (Finding the Road Back to
Joy) is about the ways our society has sought to avoid grief.
It's about the ways that avoidance has prevented us from being fully human.
It's about the methods we can use to deal effectively with the grief and
loss in our lives.
Ultimately, it's about happiness . . . the happiness that arises within us when we have space in our hearts to handle life in its totality. The joy, the love, the fun -- and the frustration and sadness.
. . . when we consciously know we are mortal, when we consciously know that we have a finite time on earth, the priorities in our lives start to change dramatically. We really start to pay attention . . . to our relationships, to our surroundings, to each moment of this precious existence. We hear sounds we've never heard before, we see sights we've never seen before, we taste tastes we've never tasted before . . . Most of all we recognize that we have no time to waste. We realize that our relationships must be loving, healthy, conscious, and alive NOW!

"Awakening from Grief is a personal journey with
universal appeal. I highly recommend it for anyone who, after a loss, is

Author, The Courage to Laugh:
Humor, Hope and Healing in the face of Death and Dying
"I love this book! It does what no other book on the market does. It weaves John's tremendously moving, poignant telling of his own stories of loss and growth together with just the right amount of academic knowledge. It makes a very sensitive subject both accessible and inspirational to the general public. It will reach, inspire, and help people. It can stand on its own, or be used in conjunction with other, more academic studies. For years we have had a void in the literature on dying and grief. This book fills that void."
Patricia Hunt-Perry, Ph.D.
Ramapo College, New Jersey
"Awakening from Grief contains heart centered wisdom
that beautifully illuminates deep and lasting issues for both the living
and the dying. I have read many articles and books about grief work, but
I can't remember being more deeply moved than when I read this book. There
is so much presence, so much compassion, so much spirit, so much wisdom
- practical and divine - that I'm led to imagine that John was inspired
and guided as he wrote this. The message clearly comes from an informed
mind counseled by a caring and "open heart."
Nancy Gwin Walker
Center for Attitudinal Healing
"John's work is fantastic . . . useful, insightful,
and compassionate. I love his insights about human relationships--how love
exists beyond, or in spite of, death--and how it exists RIGHT NOW--for
each of us--whether someone we love has died or not . . . John's work is
a true gift."
