The Healing Power of Grief Dreams
"Exploring the all too often unreported reveries of the bereaved, this pioneering volume reveals how the spiritual and psychological elements of grief dreams can assist survivors through the circuitous journey through the 'valley of the shadow.' And it does so with both understanding and a profound sense of consolation."
—Rabbi Earl A. Grollman, author, Living When a Loved One Has Died
"This book is a rare find—one that both clinicians and bereaved persons will find not only thoughtful but helpful. This book is a wonderful gift that expands our knowledge of the experiences that arise as we mourn."
—Kenneth J. Doka, professor, the College of New Rochelle, and senior consultant, the Hospice Foundation of America
"In Grief Dreams T. J. Wray and Ann Back Price have written a sensitive, intelligent guide for people who are grieving the death of a friend or family member and who want to learn more about the strange dreams they are experiencing. Grief Dreams is a trustworthy companion in the mourning process."
—Kelly Bulkeley, former president, the Association for the Study of Dreams, and author, Visions of the Night and The Wilderness of Dreams
"Beautifully written and eminently practical, Grief Dreams is a groundbreaking healing resource for anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. A wonderful and consoling guide to the world of dreams and how they help us move through bereavement."
