Jungian psychoanalyst Charlotte Mathes suffered a parent's worst nightmare -- the death of her child. In this book, she describes her struggle to find meaning and wholeness in one of the most shattering of experiences. That journey led her to Jungian archetypal psychology and to a heartfelt desire to help others come to terms with the profound sense of grief and loss that follows such an event.

As she tells her story of "personal knowing from walking the path of mother grief," Dr. Mathes establishes a background that guides the reader through the steps and archetypes that mark the process of mourning. Through personal experience, myth, and stories, she shows how one can gain a renewed sense of inner and outer wholeness in life.

This invaluable guide will help parents discover the "myth" they have been living and find ways to greater self-awareness, understanding, and wisdom. It also offers practical resources such as movies, books, and music that help parents regain perspective and learn how and where to reach out for help. Dr. Mathes's profound psychological perspective puts it all together in a holistic way that is accessible and helpful in a time of personal tragedy.
