The Grief Kaleidoscope is a unique and moving reflection on the journey through grief. With thought-provoking insights and gentle suggestions, grief counsellor Su-Rose McIntyre draws upon her own experience of the loss of her son, as well as her professional training, as she explores the deep landscape that is the grieving process. She does this creatively and sensitively through story, poem, and image. The individual reflections are each followed by a practical task and a Ďgentle tipí, and are designed to be read and reflected on until the reader is ready to move on to the next section. The Grief Kaleidoscope will be a source of comfort and strength to anyone who has lost someone close to them.

Reviews and Endorsements:

This book is different. Very different. We see a fresh perspective on grief. Itís like a stray cat Ė let it in, donít shut it out. Itís like a backpack Ė it weighs a tonne. Itís like a pebble in your shoe Ė it wonít be cast out. Su-Rose McIntyre gives grievers much to think about and valuable lessons to learn as they navigate their way through the maze of grief. - Doris Zagdanski, author of Teenagers and Grief, Now that the Funeral is Over, and other books on grief

The Greif Kaleidoscope is a book designed to accompany those in grief on their individual journeys. I can think of no better or more understanding companion for those travelling this difficult road than Su-Roseís collection of heartfelt reflections. - Mark Worthing, author of What the Dog Saw (for those grieving a suicide)

The Grief Kaleidoscope offers guideposts on the grief journey in the form of metaphors and images of some of the experiences encountered. They help make sense of grief experiences and hold out the hope that they will lead, in time, to a capacity to live with the loss. This book provides a valuable contribution to understanding how to make sense of grief. - Dr Rob Gordon PhD, FAPS Clinical Psychologist
