Designed to help people with pet loss, The Eternal Gift demystifies how animals experience their lives and deaths. As an internationally known animal communicator who has spoken with animals on the Other Side, Lauren McCall brings messages of joy and unconditional love from animals who have died. These messages will bring encouragement and reassurance to those loving, grieving souls left behind and enable them to move past their grief and into a place of acceptance. The best selling pet book in Japan for 14 months and translated into Japanese, Italian and Korean, this is a must read for anyone who seeks a better understanding of their animal companions and how they view their life, and for anyone who has experienced the loss of a cherished animal friend. Practical tips on how to cope with pet loss are offered, as well as a guided imagery the reader can use to make their on very personal connection with their deceased pet. From the very start, the book sets the stage for the joy and optimism expressed by the animals in the chapters that follow. Animals believe that the love connection between themselves and their human family members lives on after death, an everlasting and eternal gift. The author touches on questions that go through the minds of those who have experienced, or will experience, the loss of a beloved animal. "Is my pet all alone somewhere?" "Is my animal going to heaven?" "Is there an afterlife for animals?" "Is she afraid?" The book also puts into perspective issues that people commonly express about having kept their animal alive too long, or released them too soon. These issues and many more will be answered directly through the use of conversations with animals who have passed on. Though commentary is woven throughout the book, the author allows the words of the animals to clearly and eloquently express their experiences about life, the death process, the other side, and reincarnation. Though The Eternal Gift is by nature a spiritual book, the author points out to the reader that ..".this book is not based on any particular religious belief, but rather the point of view of our animal friends." This is much more than a book about grief and loss. With its 'straight from the horse's mouth' perspective, The Eternal Gift takes the reader on a wonderful journey led by the author, and by animals who have shared loving lives with their people and want to reassure them that there is life beyond death and that the eternal cycle of life, death and reincarnation is one that they are comfortable with.

COPING WITH THE LOSS OF A PET is a "how to" book & contains specific strategies to assist the bereaved pet owner & those supportive friends who are attempting to comfort one who has lost a pet. The death of a beloved pet can be a devastating emotional experience & is an experience faced by all who love & cherish a pet. Unlike other areas where loss & death occur, the grief & pain felt at the loss of a beloved pet is little understood & only slight guidance or comfort has been available. Authored by thanatologist & cultural anthropologist Christina M. Lemieux, COPING WITH THE LOSS OF A PET helps us understand the dimensions & effects of bereavement with regard to ourselves & those whom we care about. By drawing on her own background of compassion, experience, & practical wisdom, Dr. Lemieux is able to combine encouragement with insight as she provides help & counsel while accompanying us through the experience of aloneness, grieving, & ultimately the process of healing. Dr. Lemieux has devoted much of her professional career to the subject of death & dying. She is a Professor of Anthropology at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania & maintains an extensive involvement in fieldwork, classroom instruction, educational programs for health care professionals, & involvement in hospice training programs.
