Karuna Cards are like love letters to the Self that can be read out of order: questions and gentle suggestions to awaken the mourner's senses,  inspire poetry, works of art, and loving words, full of promise and hope.

~ Nancy Gershman, developer of "Dreamscaping"

It is such a relief to be given some structure, indeed, even some instruction, in things to do, some ways to access and move some of the encapsulated grief from deep inside to some glimmer of release...these short, seemingly simple yet actually profound exercises are just enough to do without giving rise to "oh, I couldn't possibly take time to _____________." But on the contrary, these little suggestions are eminently doable, that my response tends to be, "why yes, I've got the time."

~A grieving grandmother
