Publisher's Summary

The way we deal with grief in the Western world is fundamentally broken. This inspiring guide to living a life after death aims to change that.

Peyton Salvage suffered the death of a loved one at an early age and learned that the way we approach death as a society does nothing to serve those struggling to cope with losing someone dear to them.

Losing a loved one is one of the most traumatic and heartbreaking events in a person's life. And yet, as a society, we're uncomfortable with allowing people to grieve in the way most natural to them, leaving mourners feeling isolated and ashamed of their grief. 

We tell them that everything happens for a reason and expect that to be enough. But that can't be right. How do you "get over" the loss of someone you loved? How do you move on like your love for them was nothing? 

By addressing grief from the view of both the mourner and those who comfort them, this uplifting book offers a gentle, guiding hand to help those impacted by death heal and find meaning in life afterward.

Healing from Death: A Lifelong Journey with Grief and Loss makes no promises about you "moving on" or "getting over" your grief. Instead, this book seeks to help you grow and live with your grief in a healthy way that honors the love you had for those you've lost.

Amazing book

I really need it this. After losing my dad from cancer I had a really hard time to cope, as he was oversea I didn’t get a chance to see him before he pass. This book is healing my heart day by day, it is not easy but it is part of everyone’s journey. I highly recommended it to anyone that is grieving, struggling from losing a loved one.

I Received Understanding

I very much enjoyed this book. My Wife and I had lost two people each side of our family within a 30 day time period. We have not really had the opportunity to figure out the grieving from those who passed away. We just this weekend went to visit family and this book really opened my eyes to how everyone really griefs differently and how they are on different levels of griefs. It made it a lot easier to communicate with my family because I knew how to meet them where they were at. I am grateful to have found this book.

A relevant book for all

A much needed book for everyone! Death is a part of life and yet society and people in general never provided the best support to people grieving for a loved one. This book has helped me understand death differently and as a psychologist, I will definitely recommend this to my clients. Thank you for such an insightful and powerful book!

Motivating guide to continue

My grandmas sister passed and it had been tough to cope, because I knew that my grandma and grandpa are in the same age range.

This book not only helped me detect some triggers and learn to cope with them for my loss of my great aunt, but I feel more prepared to handle the inevitable losses of loved ones in the future.

Excellent

After my loss, I was emotionally disturbed, and that affected my physical health.

A good friend of mine recommended this audiobook to me, and this helped me to get back to everyday life.

My grief will remain the same, but sadness is gone from my life.

Recommended!!

Healing book!

I loved the simplicity and the thoughtful content of this book. It is a challenging process of healing from death, but we must be prepared and willing to heal. My favorite chapter was "Finding your own way," the information was looking for. I highly recommend this 👍

Great listen

The author did an amazing job in putting this audiobook together. My wife lost a close family member earlier this year due to covid and it’s been something she’s trying to heal from. She loves how the narrator speaks so peacefully and it really helps you ease. The chapter on Making Peace with Grief was really helpful for her.

Nobody knows how I feel!

That is always our thoughts when faced with grief. Nobody can know how I feel, therefore no one can help. If you are feeling like that, then I advise you to get this book and crawl into a corner alone with it for a few hours. It will perhaps do much more good than a few hours with friends. It is very comprehensive and covers many different aspects of grief, exploring causes and results.

Such an important book!

Surpressing emotions, pain and grief only causes all of these to pile up, and then explode anyway. This audiobook guide helps to process natural emotions and feelings connected with grief and loss in a much more productive way. Healing is an individual and complicated process, and this guide helps navigate through it gently and compassionately while being patient with yourself without feeling guilty for your emotions. Would 100% recommend.
