Product Details


“You are holding in your hand a perfectly wonderful book if you are now dealing with someone suffering from Alzheimer’s disease—or if you know of someone who is. If the second is true, you may want to put this book in their hands the moment you finish reading it.” –Neale Donald Walsch

“Maggie La Tourelle leads us through both a human and spiritual labyrinth in the language of the heart with her mother who has Alzheimer’s. It is a treasure of guidance to help us all understand this frightening illness. Should you ever find yourself dealing with a family member with Alzheimer’s you will be deeply grateful for this book.”  –Donna Eden, world-renowned author and inspirational teacher of Energy Medicine

“On the face of it, Alzheimer’s seems to underline the tragedy of the human condition as it descends into fragmentation, disorientation, disintegration and death. How utterly deceiving appearances can be! This extraordinary and trailblazing book, without in the least skimming over the difficulties and tough challenges of the illness, reveals something entirely unexpected in its dimensions – the beauty, courage and invincibility of the human spirit as it consciously occupies higher dimensions whilst simultaneously dealing with its gradual withdrawal from the earthy body and mind. In this deeply moving book, Maggie La Tourelle charts her journey with her Alzheimer’s – afflicted mother, offering wonderful confirmation that, whilst decline and death are happening at the outer level, the power of love can find an enriched opportunity for expression and transformation through the unique focus of Alzheimer’s, and that nothing of the person you knew is truly lost.”  –The Cygnus Review

“Maggie La Tourelle describes the gradual stripping away of personality by Alzheimer’s, leaving the essential central core, as if one could see into the self and what is beyond. She gives a moving account of this dissolution process, the ‘thinning of the veil’, that removes some barrier to another consciousness which is actually there in everyday normal life. A truly remarkable book which shows great insight and understanding and will be of inestimable help to anyone caring for someone with the disease.” –Peter Fenwick MB BChir FRCPsych Consultant Neuropsychiatrist

“A deeply touching and compassionate book that explores one of life’s greatest challenges.” –Tim Freke author of The Mystery Experience 

“The only way to truly understand the process or journey Maggie discovered in living with her mother with Alzheimer’s is to read this book slowly and with considerable time for reflection… The beauty of the book is Maggie’s and her mother’s discovery that Alzheimer’s disease may just be a bridge to the other world…This book is so rich in scientific as well and humanistic and holistic information from Maggie La Tourelle that it should become required reading for us all. Very Highly Recommended.” –Grady Harp

‘A very important book which shares deep wisdom … essential reading for all healthcare workers.’  Dr Penny Sartori, author of The Wisdom Of Near-Death Experiences
