It became apparent after it was published that Life After Grief had even more to offer than we first realised. Darrelyn’s ability to write sensitively about such a difficult subject attracted attention from people who weren’t astrologers, but who resonated strongly with her ideas on the grief process. As a result she expanded the first section into another book, Grief: A Dark, Sacred Time. This has fast become a classic, gaining some beautiful and heartfelt reviews.

To say that Darrelyn Gunzburg is multi-talented would be a bit of an understatement. In AstroGraphology: The hidden link between your horoscope and your handwriting, she combines her experience as an astrologer and a graphologist to show that just as a ripple in a pond spreads outwards, so does the apparently insignificant act of changing one letter in your handwriting change the course of your life. Yes. Really. Her popular workshop, The 7-Day ‘F’ Challenge, covers some of the points from the book and is available on our Youtube channel.

In Life After Grief: An Astrological Guide to Dealing with Loss Darrelyn combines her unique insight into bereavement with the journey of her clients through grief, using their astrological charts as a guide. The first part of this book is non-astrological and there were many requests from  bereavement support organisations for her to broaden the remit and write a whole book on the subject. Darrelyn was happy to oblige and the result of this is Grief: A Dark, Sacred Time, which attracted some beautiful reviews. “This book brings me to my knees” and “this was the best book by far in helping me deal with my bereavement” are particular favourites.

In a sense, this book opened the floodgates, because Covid and all its emotional implications came along shortly afterwards, prompting us to create a beautiful video with Darrelyn on the subject of Coping With Coronavirus in Lockdown. As we still face testing times the video becomes ever more relevant – it’s available over on our Youtube channel.

Grief: A Dark Sacred Time also marks a new venture for us as it is the first of our books available as an audiobook, recorded by Darrelyn herself. It’s available on Amazon.
