This video raises the awareness of the effects of grief and trauma on the human spirit and emphasizes that complete healing requires attention to the spiritual concerns that surface in the wake of the experience. While the spiritual struggle may begin almost immediately following the event, the most intense pain of the spiritual conflict is often encountered only many months, or even years, after.

From the Author
In this video I describe my own grief experience and the journey to healing following the traumatic death of my young son. I share the spiritual struggle and beliefs crisis I experienced. I tell of the work I now do as a trained therapist in helping thousands heal from the depths of such grief and trauma. This video helps provide an understanding of spirituality which is outside and beyond the scope of any particular religion or culture. I recommend this video for both personal and professional use.
