Jennifer Salima Holt will discuss her book Sacred Gateway of Grief and Loss: Freeing the Imprisoned Soul, 7:30pm, Friday, February 19, at Magers & Quinn Booksellers.

Jennifer Salima Holt’s inspirational book, Sacred Gateway of Grief and Loss: Freeing the Imprisoned Soul (Indigo Heart Publishing, 2009) describes the breakthroughs Jennifer witnessed by leading grief and loss groups for women prisoners. Many personal stories of miraculous change, love and light fill the book, as well as practical information about how each one of us can approach our grief and loss in sacred, loving ways. Sacred Gateway is a deeply felt, loving testament to the power and beauty of the human spirit to survive and even thrive, regardless of the depths to which we may tumble. At the event, Jennifer Salima will also perform spiritual chants inspired by her work with the prisoners (available on her CD, Ecstatic Groove: Sacred World Chant Infusions, Salima’s Whirled Peas, 2009).

“Inspiring, courageous, beautifully written. Jennifer Holt’s heart-felt story of her volunteer work running grief and loss groups with women prisoners shows us that transformation is possible anywhere. Her book is testament to the amazing capacity we all have to change, grow, learn and feel joy, despite our challenges.”–Charlotte Sophia Kasl, Ph.D., author of If the Buddha Dated
