A group of 3 other women began this journey with me in January 2010. A pair of friends in Oregon had recommended it to me and had suggested that I do it with another friend and so we all got together and began. We made the committment to finish it no matter what "life issues" got in the way, and 8 months later, we did. 2 women had recently lost sons who were in their late 20's, 1 woman was grieving the recent of her father, and I was grieving the loss of my mobility.
While I can't speak for the other women specifically, I can say, this book was life changing, truly. I began as I said grieving my loss of mobility, but ended up grieving my loss of parents (they died in the 70's) my brother (he died in 2000!) and my dog who died in 2009!). This book gives so many wonderful tool, but more than that, affirming, uplifting, concrete writing, reading & exercises to be shared that let you know that the things your are feeling..... everyone else feels just the same, REALLY.
We started another group 3 months later, and reading what I had written with the newer group was such a revelation. I realized how far I had progressed.
I'll be ordering a new book, as we are now in the process of starting ANOTHER group with some more people. This will be now 11 people who have gone through this book with me. I'm so grateful for all I am learning. Please, try it. You will be amazed, IF YOU DO THE WORK, WITH OTHERS!
The other journals that I have seen simply ask a question and give you a page to write. The Healing Journal gives you many open ended questions like 'Since the death, my life has changed the most in that.....". These sentences makes you thnk and write, to help you work thru this dark time in your life. I would recommend this book very highly.
It guides you through the process and provides places in the book where you can write out your memories and thoughts and feelings.
It is informational; while also being a diary of sorts.
