Healing Through Illness, Living Through Dying addresses a wide range of practical and emotional issues faced by patients and caregivers. The rituals not only guide readers through difficult and often unfamiliar territory, but also support them in growing and healing on many levels - whether the path leads into remission or through the end of life. Many rituals are simple and can easily be slipped into everyday routines, such as finding moments to consciously relax and release tension. Other rituals are used in particular circumstances, such as releasing anger or creating meaningful connections with loved ones. This book shines a light on options that otherwise might not be considered, and helps patients and caregivers gain a greater sense of control at a time when so much feels out of control. With warmth and wisdom, Courtney supports readers in bringing greater meaning into their journey, and empowers them to move through the challenges with greater strength and grace.

Healing Through Illness, Living Through Dying A guidebook offering rituals to help patients and their caregivers:
Candice Courtney's husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor in early 1997 and given only months to live. In the two years he survived, they both developed and grew throughout their journey together. After his death, Ms. Courtney drew upon her background in ritual to offer support to those fighting an illness or grieving a loss. Her study of ritual in diverse cultures informed her understanding of the essential - if sometimes unnoticed - role ritual plays throughout our lives. Ms. Courtney gives workshop and presentations for patients and professionals, as well as speaking at national and international conferences.
