The death of a loved one is often accompanied by regrets among the survivors. These kinds of unresolved feelings can prevent someone from letting go and moving on, affecting other relationships. In The Infinite Thread, previously titled Your Loved One Lives On Within You, Alexandra Kennedy explains that death need not separate people from those they love, and that, in fact, the end of a life can lead to a new beginning with the person considered lost forever.
At the heart of Kennedy's approach to grieving is the use of the imagination as a transformative tool. Through active imagination and inner dialogue, readers develop the power to create and re-create relationships, heal old wounds, and experience deep intimacy. This continuing relationship with the person who has died offers powerful opportunities for healing, resolution, and even guidance.
