Free E-Book Offer For You
I have written a book titled Addressing Trauma, Grief and Loss - A
Personal Journey, in response to very many requests for help with this
vexing issue. This electronic book is available free, as a service to you and
The book is my attempt to be of assistance in a very emotional area. In it I
have firstly related my personal experience of grief and loss, and then have
gone on to offer some different strategies which have come out of this
experience. I have taken the liberty of reproducing questions that I have been
asked with my answers (no holds barred). Please know that this small book,
coming from my experience, does not attempt to be or to provide a definitive
answer to everyone's grief issues, however it does offer a way forward.
There is a “catch” - I would like your comments on the book. Could you please
email or telephone me with any feedback you have about its contents or perhaps
any result from putting the strategies into action in your life. Why? Because,
sometime, I would like to publish it as hard copy and I’m sure it can be
improved by your input.
It often takes a crisis before we discover our inner strength. When faced
with grief and loss, we can allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by the pain, or we
can choose to work through it and grow from the experience.
Going through the emotions associated with grief and loss is a normal part of
the grieving process and it is necessary to reconcile ourselves in some way so
that we can move on from the experience to become a better, stronger person with
a greater sense of purpose in life as a result.
Here’s the Foreword to - Addressing Grief and Loss
Over the last 18 years I have conducted more than 1000 seminars, 3 hour, 1
Day, 2-Day and 4-Day CALM Life Skills Seminars. These seminars are about how to
tap into and use the deeper inner mind, the subconscious mind, to achieve
anything we wish to do, faster and easier … including accelerated learning,
changing or creating new habits, or handling grief and loss - I call it “Life
Skills” learning. After I dealt with my own traumatic experience resulting from
the shotgun murder of my three teenage daughters Jenny, Kirsty and Lexie (who
were killed 20 years ago), using the methods outlined in this book, I felt
compelled to start to teach others and share these powerful techniques.
This book is about dealing with and moving through any trauma which often
involves grief and loss. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, because we can
learn so much from adversity) all of us will be facing this issue probably more
than once in our life time. We cannot escape things like having friends move
away, having to move from one town to another, or losing a pet, or losing a job,
or losing a loved one through death and many other kinds of trauma too numerous
to mention. I believe that we can use the methods outlined to deal with traumas
which occurred many years ago and yet have not been completely "handled".
I have discussed my own experiences in this area during radio interviews, on
TV programs including "Sixty Minutes" and "Australian Story", in the written
media and during my seminars. During my seminars, or on the telephone, or by
email, many people have discussed, questioned, or sought clarification, about
many grief and loss issues. I have thousands of words on the subject and I am
grateful to my daughter, Lara, for distilling these words into this book which
has the purpose of helping others to deal with their own grief and loss.
My major recommendation is always to come to terms with the issues of any
trauma or grief and loss, (never push it down), go through it - and learn from
the experience. A major tool that I offer to assist the process and move through
guilt, blame, resentment, (and more), and to change negative thoughts like
hatred, anger and revenge into acceptance, love and forgiveness is to use my
meditation CDs: Acceptance and Letting Go, Unconditional Love and
Forgiveness and thus gain a sense of understanding and Inner Peace.

2 CD Pack - Moving Onward
Within the book Addressing Grief and Loss, I have suggested the use of
3 guided meditations, to work through the grief and loss issue. There is a
guide on how you can make the meditation tapes for yourself, if you choose to,
together with the words I use in these guided meditations that are, spoken on
the relevant CDs.
Many people have requested the meditations on CD, so I offer them to you as a
special Moving Onward - 2 Pack at the price of $50 (Plus postage and packing).
The first two tracks on the Forgiveness CD, are Building your Peaceful Place and
Getting to Your Peaceful Place in 3 Minutes, these need to be played as a first
step, that is, prior to any meditation. Both Acceptance and Letting Go and
Unconditional Love are on one CD.
