Front Cover
CLAIRVIEW BOOKS, Jan 1, 2000 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 127 pages
Foreword by George Ritchie

Doré Deverell's son Richard had a difficult life of physical and mental illness and depression. When he committed suicide at the age of thirty-six, Doré suffered the intense anguish of a mother's loss. But she was determined to find healing and reconciliation.

This is her account of how she contacted Richard after his death. Through the work of Rudolf Steiner, she discovered ways to communicate with her son's spirit. She learned that those who commit suicide tend to experience great suffering and regret as a result of premature death. Doré was taught how to alleviate Richard's pain, and finally to transform it. These steps are described in an accessible way to help those who find themselves in a similar tragic situation. A gripping account of love, despair, death and resurrection. This a heartwarming confirmation of a spiritual reality-that, through the spirit, light overcomes dark. Illustrated.
