The Journey Home: Preparing for Life's Ultimate Adventure Audio CD – December 25, 2011
"Dr. Graber's The Journey Home: Preparing for Life's Ultimate Adventure is nothing short of a gift from above. Readers will be left with a sense of beauty, wonder, awe and a pulling--without fear--toward a meaningful life, the Journey Home, and a continuing adventure that awaits each of us on the other side." --Trace N. Pirtle, Ed.D.
"Dear Ann Graber: I have read your wonderful manuscript and am deeply impressed. Your own near death experience and your participation in Kay's preparation for her death confer authenticity to your words that few authors can claim. I would recommend this book to everyone concerned with the dying process--most especially those in hospice work and grief counseling." --John F. Commerford, M.D.
"The Journey Home uniquely combines and holds in creative tension the physiological and psychological dimensions of the dying process with the spiritual journey through death.... One of the great strengths of this book is that it... gives both a human and psycho-spiritual character that will appeal to both the layperson facing the reality of death, as well as the professional who is called upon to assist and minister to a dying person and their family." --The Very Rev. Philip C. Linder, D.Min., Psy.D. Dean, Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Columbia, SC
"The Journey Home could very well be that much- needed manual for both pastor and parishioner which --by removing the sting of death--provides comfort and reassurance to those preparing to die, those who care for them and those who live on.... Graber has lessened the fear of death through a vivid description of a remarkable and personal portrait of her experience with the dying process. Moreover, Graber has restored to death and to the dying process its sacred dignity by refocusing on man's spiritual origin as a return to and a fulfillment of a life's journey." --The Rev. Jeremiah N. Murasso, Ph.D., Ed.D. Pastor, St. Francis of Assisi Church, South Windsor, CT
"After reading this phenomenal book, I began to evaluate my life and make decisions that were put on hold because of fear.... Perhaps I would not have made this decision to prepare myself for my own journey had I not read Dr. Graber's soul-inspiring manuscript." --Rosa M. Ramos, Elementary School Counselor --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
About the Author
Ann V. Graber, PhD, author of Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy, has earned the respect of students around the world as an instructor of Franklian psychology, a meaning-centered approach to counseling that looks at our transitioning through life optimistically and calls us to live responsibly.
Since her own "wake-up call"--which opens the book--Ann has been yearning to assist her fellow travelers to view death as a "commencement" rather than the end of life. We have all graduated from something--Kindergarten, grade school, high school or college--to begin the next level of learning. So it is in the School of Life. We go through the commencement exercise, known as Death, on our Journey Home. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I enthusiastically recommend the book to anyone interested in pursuing a life of meaning regardless of age or circumstances. The book offers solace and serenity from a very wise teacher-author, Ann V. Graber.
