The Life of A Sandcastle

is a  brilliantly simple allegory that presents the cycle of life and death at a level that is accessible to folks of all ages. This rhyming tale takes us on a journey that explores a day in the life of a sandcastle who comes to find she is not just a little sandcastle, but one with the entire ocean. An inspiring story for all who struggle with loss. Based on the teachings of A Course In Miracles.

Thank you for supporting our commitment to helping to bring conversations to those who struggle with loss and change

We used this book in my Counseling Children class at Rutgers University and I have continued to use this book in my own practice. I found that it helps the clinician work through issues of loss and death in a familiar way with children. Of note, is the non sectarian way in which the issues of afterlife are explored on a child's level. Very useful in public clinical settings. I know several other clinicians who use this story to help their young patients as well and strongly recommend it for loss work with children.
