Claire Perkins touches the hearts of all mothers with her story of love and healing. After her son's death at the age of 26, she courageously faces her grief by using the tools of active dreaming, journaling, journeying, story telling, energy work and artistic expression to honor his life and their relationship. Each of us can benefit from Claire's self-reflective strategies to address emotional trauma and loss in our own quests for healing. Also, this book is an excellent resource for professionals in the "helping" fields. As an educator and counselor I appreciate Claire's powerful insights for growing a new vision from the "tangled threads" that follow a tragedy. As a mother of a son, I followed her journey of transformation with an aching heart. On a personal level, I was reminded that the power of love transcends and releases even the deepest wounds to body and soul.
Claire Perkin's book is a unique combination of personal story, guidance to access the power of dream imagery, and help in finding a way to heal through creativity even while in the depths of tremendous grief. Parents or anyone struggling with the devastation of drug addiction in their loved ones will find this book to be an oasis of help. This is a very welcome guide, written by one who personally knows of what she writes. Thank you Claire!
In the Deep Water Leaf Society, Claire Perkins has penned a very personal and powerful account of her journey through grief after losing her eldest son to a drug overdose in 2004. Still this is hardly just another story by a heartbroken mom. Instead Claire relates her deeply compelling chronicle to illuminate the spiritual path for anyone who is suffering from a loss in their lives--whether the loss takes the shape of the death of a loved one, divorce, job loss, or some other change in circumstance. Through journaling, expressive arts and music, Claire leads us to the realization that the greatest losses can be our greatest gifts if we choose to embrace our own intuition, growth, and self-love. If you're looking for hope and healing after loss, I highly recommend that you start your journey with the Deep Water Leaf Society.

What I like about this book is that I experienced with Claire the struggle, the pain of her grief experiences with simple, compelling words and pictures. There are miracles in that book for the reader. The book was a break through for me and a path to get the lessons from the struggles.
I think we all are affected by our own grief, hence sooner or later we have to face what we have hidden in the depth of our soul. It felt so good not feeling alone and finding tools and means to see the real Sylvie versus what I like to be and what everyone think of me.
It takes courage to be transparent, her message is: < painful as your loss truly is, there is a gift wrapped within it. That gift is the call to the re-membrance and re-creation of yourself.>> (p237) Discover with her the way. Sylvie
