Dennis Hardin Posted March 19, 2011 Author Share Posted March 19, 2011 Elisabeth Kubler-Ross has done some terrific work in the area of grief and loss. She characterizes the five stages of grief as: Denial-Anger-Bargaining-Depression-Acceptance. As you might expect, her website has some religious content related to afterlife experiences. Here is a link to her website:Grief.com - The Five Stages of GriefThanks. I'll check it out. My friend isn't much of a reader, but he is a big fan of audio books. I haven't looked into this yet. Do you know if Nathaniel Branden ever wrote anything on death and grieving? On a related topic: My Bichon, Herbert, died on the morning of December 26, 2008. He dropped dead from a heart attack in front of me during our morning walk. This still messes up Christmas for me. This video was shot nearly a year to the day before Herbert's death, and it took around a year before I could watch it without shedding tears. I understand why I was exceptionally close to this dog, but even so....GhsBranden has a chapter on "Death Anxiety" in Honoring the Self. I don’t know if he has ever written anything on grief. I’ll check further and let you know if I find anything.That’s a very touching (and funny) video with you and Herbert. I know exactly how you felt when he died. I had a cat named Dagny for 16 years. I was so torn up after she died that I had to write a memoir about her as part of my recovery. I have never been able to accept the idea of owning another pet. Losing Dagny was just too painful. It’s even difficult to write about now, almost 20 years later. Dagny used to start meowing as soon as she heard my footsteps on the stairs leading up to my apartment. I know I'll probably be skewered for admitting this, but I will swear I continued to hear her meowing every time I walked up those stairs for at least a year after she died. How weird is that?
