Along with grief, the death of a loved one often brings old resentments, regrets and unexpressed love, which can block our emotional growth and negatively impact our relationships. Alexandra Kennedy shows us how, by using imagination and imagery, we can re-create an inner relationship with our loved ones who have passed away: "If we can access our imagination, we can begin to open to that mystery and allow for things to happen that we don't understand with our rational mind." Because our culture is not comfortable with death and its aftermath, we often try to suppress our grief, and yet, as Kennedy points out: "Grief is a process that is trying to heal us." The best news is, no matter how long it's been since you lost someone, "it's never too late to heal, it's never too late to resolve the unfinished business." (hosted by Michael Toms)
