—Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.
HONORING GRIEF is a living jewel. Open anywhere and your being lightens up. I read it shortly after my dear father's passing. It has helped me immensely. I have made peace with my father's absence, and integrated him into my heart, and life. It's more than a grief book because it reminds me to live fully - it's now a bedside book for me. It makes a wonderful gift. I'd like to see it translated into several languages. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I'd give it a 10. Thanks Ms. Kennedy! Available at Amazon Now.
"In Honoring Grief, Alexandra Kennedy offers both a profoundly practical and sacred approach to transforming loss of any kind. I have benefited personally, using Alexandra's insights and tools for my own grief journey and recommending it to friends and family. As a psychotherapist I have whole-heartedly suggested this book as a valuable resource for clients in the throes of new loss, or those longing to create a new relationship to past loss and change. . . Having been a long time fan of Kennedy's other works, specifically The Infinite Thread, I have been delighted and grateful to discover and share Honoring Grief. In beautiful language it deeply supports us, mind, body, soul and spirit." — Nina
"I can say from my own personal experience that the work Alexandra Kennedy brings through her books, as well as her life's work as a psychotherapist, is one of great healing, compassion, and transformation. . . I highly recommend Alexandra’s books, workshops, and private sessions." — Teresa
"Times with Alexandra are sessions with a wise soul. She helps me sort through struggles and dilemmas, as well as recognize dynamics I've been blind to, all the while finding taproots of well-being. She diligently frames directions to put into practice living in the wider world. I always feel undercurrents of gladness in our meetings. Her fearless attention in the face of challenging emotions and surrounding situations I find deeply nourishing to my own efforts to meet and transform the pressing dynamics I encounter. I'm inspired by her ebullient calm, her resilient vitality, her capacity to think lucidly amidst stormy weather." — Dan
