From the Author
Suddenly, you find yourself lost in the valley of grief.
Shock and confusion rattle you to your very soul. Your mind keeps repeating, "This can't be happening."
The loss of your loved one quickly fills your days with incomprehensible duties; calling relatives and friends with the dreadful news, planning a funeral and Heaven help you when it's time to go back to work.
Grief can hijack your mind, forcing you to watch repeated replays of the traumatic "mental movies" of the last time you saw them or the place and time when you received the dreadful news.
You're struggling to function day-to-day and have that constant lump in your throat, the unpredictable waves of tears that come instantly at the sound of "their song" or the smell of "their cologne" or "their perfume."
Maybe you're beating yourself up over regrets from the past or wrestling with the idea of having to accept a future without your loved one. Maybe you find yourself watching helplessly as your family members slowly fade into mere shadows of themselves as they struggle to deal with their grief.
It's normal to feel powerless and ill-equipped to deal with grief because, unfortunately, most folks aren't prepared for the devastating experience of losing a loved one. Dealing with grief isn't something we normally talk about.
If you're like me, when my 22-year old son died, I was willing to do the work...I was just having trouble finding someone to show me HOW!
So, I did the only thing I knew how to do - I did research! I scoured the internet. I read dozens of books. I talked with local grief experts. I hired personal coaches. Everyone seemed to have an idea or two that was helpful, but I wanted an action plan. Call me impatient, but I wasn't going to be satisfied with merely 'understanding' the grieving process or waiting to see if "time" alone would heal my broken heart.
I made it my goal to figure out this grieving thing and to share whatever I found to be helpful with my clients. The result: I've compiled the ideas, stories - and some action steps - that have proven to be helpful in my book, Grief Is...Mourning Sickness, an "emotional first aid" handbook just for you!
From the Inside Flap
"Jan Luther's perspectives are insightful, unique, practical and comforting. This book should be required reading for everyone, both for dealing wisely with others who have had losses and for the tools we can use when ourselves are experiencing grief."
- Mary Elizabeth Raines, Author, The Laughing Cherub Guide to Past-Life Regression: A Handbook for Real People books-plays-scripts.com
"Nothing short of inspired."
- Ann Adams, LCSW FromtheDeskofAnnAdams.com
"There are many books about grief and grieving, but Jan Luther's stands alone as the only book that not only gives you a clear sense of how to come through the storms intact, but also shows you how to regain inner peace. Perhaps best of all, she introduces a remarkable mind-body tool into the process that works to physically and emotionally balance and restore your system to a place of serenity and health. I wish I had had this book when I went through the loss of my mother -if it had been available, I would have bought one for myself and one for everyone around me. Whether you have lost someone you love or you know someone who has, this book is essential --you will be grateful, as I am, that Jan has written this. By putting the concepts and ideas here to work in your life, you will come through the grieving season stronger and more peaceful than you ever could have imagined."
- Lynne Shaner, MA, CHT, EFT Level 3 Practitioner and Trainer, Director of Praxis, eftpraxis.com, co-author of The EFTfree Manual and co-founder of EFTfree.net
"This is a powerful book. Jan does a great job of defining grief and giving direction on how to help yourself. I loved this book. It will be helpful to anyone experiencing loss, especially in those first couple of years."

by Baerbel Froehlin, EFT ADV. Expert Practitioner, Life Coach and Hypnotherapist of smoothchanges.com. This Radio Show is bringing live EFT sessions to people in need for healing. Grief is a huge experience for everybody.
After reading her book I wanted to ask Jan specifically about her own experience of the process of grieving. As she talks in detail about the motivation to write this book the listener gets to know her, understands and feels with her as she talks about the time her own son was killed in a car accident. She describes how she survived this tragedy by using EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques).
I very much like the way Jan Luther empowers all people who read her book. The way she suggests readers start using EFT from the moment grief enters their life is comforting. The book speaks to all people and I especially like that it can be used by anybody in a grief situation, without necessarily having to work with a therapist. Self-Help in the true sense!
Bold, practical, honest and accessible, her gentle and powerful methods allow you to experience and validate your grief, but not be consumed by it. In fact, you find yourself realizing it is a life lesson that offers you an empathy you cannot wait to share.
