Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

"C. G. Jung characterized his psychology and as an attempt, 'ever renewed, to give an answer to the question of the interplay between "here" and "hereafter".' Inspired by her own bereavement, Susan Olson soulfully engages the same interplay. Grappling now with the starkness of loss, now with the richness of death, she gives her answer to the 'here' and 'hereafter' question. A book of love and mystery. Highly recommended!" - Greg Mogenson, Jungian analyst, author of Greeting the Angels: An Imaginal View of the Mourning Process.

"A truly psychological work. Grounded in personal experiences, and armed with wide-ranging knowledge and sensitivity, the author explores grief, transformation, and dreams of the dead in human psychology. This remarkable book can help us, professionally and personally, face the loss of a loved one and the legacy for the dead." - Paul Kugler, Jungian analyst, author of Raids on the Unthinkable: Freudian and Jungian Psychoanalysis.

"Susan Olson follows the unconscious currents that shape and channel mourning. Her book is a generous, deeply moving, and personal gift to all whose hearts will never be unbroken after the loss of a child. Hearts may mend through a journey in the symbolic landscapes of dreams, where the beloved one lives on in a form scarcely recognized by our limited consciousness." - Kathrin Asper, Jungian analyst, author of The Inner Child in Dreams.
