About the Book
In My Journey With The Wind, A magical story of grief, a child whose brother died embarks on a magical journey coming to realize that the bond they thought was lost continues in their love for each other. At the end of the book, there is an interactive section of holistic therapeutic activities which match the theme and story and help the reader consider their own experiences with grief as well. These activities include emotion coaching, memory making, “grief storms” preparation, guided imagery for relaxation, and a prompt to look for messages of hope and love in their own life as well. This story and activity sections were designed to help facilitate difficult conversations about death and feelings of grief with children which can result from any significant change in their life. This book can be used by professionals working with children in school, hospital, hospice, and counseling settings as well as at home with caregivers.
