Helping Parents Heal assists bereaved parents in very significant ways. It provides personal and specialized support, tips, and tools for finding hope for those parents whose children have passed. It offers much-needed peer support which aids in the healing process going a step beyond other groups because it supports the open discussion of spiritual experiences and evidence for the afterlife in a non-dogmatic way. Everyone is welcome regardless of religious or non-religious background allowing for open dialogues for those to wish who wish to share their personal afterlife communications. I’m truly both delighted and honored to have been asked to introduce some of the enlightened presenters who were at this conference in August, 2022 in Phoenix, Arizona. These insights provide uplifting interviews comprising a special new series on the Grief and Rebirth Podcast that will illumine the wondrous healing work of Helping Parents Heal – the organization’s sole mission is to help other parents who have also lost their precious children ensuring them that they need not walk alone through their profound grief.
The next conference will again take place in Phoenix, Arizona in 2024.

After she entered pre-med at Notre Dame University, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with a Computer Concentration and got an amazing job in the aviation electronics industry. When she discovered to her surprise that she was very unhappy, she started to pray. “Dear God, whoever, whatever you are, please… Help me wake up happy, go to bed grateful, & make a living doing something I love.” That prayer was the key that opened the door to a whole new life for Ann. She started experiencing dreams and coincidences, teachers and healers appeared, she learned the language of silence and she began to discern the rich tapestry of signs and symbols. She also started receiving messages from her angels, and she began to enjoy the mystical world of energy. One day, when she least expected it, she clearly heard voices that told her to “turn in her resignation the next day.” She took a leap of faith and never looked back.

About six weeks after Chloe’s death, Andrea sat down to write her a letter – the kind of letter a mother writes to help express her grief. Fully expecting to burn the letter upon completion, her world changed when Chloe answered back. There began a five-month long conversation touching on everything from what Chloe was experiencing out-of-the-body to 12 Steps to Bridging Across the Veil. The result was Andrea’s first book, Conversations with Chloe – A Mother and Daughter Dialogue Across the Veil. When she wanted to understand more about how grieving mothers handle this huge loss, Andrea joined Helping Parents Heal and from those conversations came her second book, the book she wished she could have read when Chloe passed, titled: Magical Thinking…not!
