Keeping the dead alive

How to Let Grief Grow and Keep the Dead Alive

A resource by Mary-Joan Gerson, Ph.D.

Key points

  • Grief is not time-limited. It continues throughout the rest of a lifetime.
  • Those who’ve died can remain alive in conversation and in shared relationships much more than Western culture seems to allow.
  • The Western psychological approach to grief should become less pragmatic and more open to the spiritual dimension of presence and connection.
