“Not only were the "dialogues of love, grief, and survival" consistent with the most credible testimony relative to life after death that I have encountered elsewhere, but helped me make sense out of a number of things I had previously struggled to grasp. As with me 20 years ago, the boggle threshold of most people is probably too low to fully understand and appreciate what August, Tim, and the advanced Risen Ones have to say about the greater reality, but to the serious student of metaphysics this book has much to offer.”
Esteemed paranormal journalist, author of The Articulate Dead
"If you are interested in consciousness, after death communication, out of body experiences and what happens after transition this book is a must read. Tim and August have done an amazing job to bring this information through. It will stun, amaze and extend your conception of what is possible."

“The Risen—Dialogues of Love, Grief & Survival is a story of love that death couldn't defeat, and gives believers the kind of afterlife details they thirst for and so rarely encounter. Along the way, it offers those who don't believe in afterlife communication plenty of reason to hope they are wrong.”
Author of New York Times bestseller Lily Dale: The True Story of the Town that Talks to the Dead
“An important book written from the author’s dual perspective as a psychotherapist and also one who can access the non-physical realm. We learn that grief is not something to be battled or ignored, but to be embraced and transformed. The Risen is much more that a companion to grief—it is a road map to understanding, meaning, and purpose for us all.”

“I could stay immersed in this book indefinitely. Rich with nearly endless tasty bits, any one of which may be the nugget needed to get through today and grow toward tomorrow. It doesn’t claim to have all the answers; it provides methods to find them within yourself.”

“A beautiful, totally emotionally-interactive book that isn't just for those grieving. There's so much wisdom presented in such a loving way that reading it is like being enveloped in a big hug. This book knocked us into altered states where we’ve had insights that can’t be articulated into words … shifting emotional pain into more positive states. Like the first book, it's a lifetime read.”

Spiritual researchers at Spirit Horizons: “All Things Spiritual in Scotland”
"Reading The Risen: A Companion to Grief is a contemplative journey into the transition of life after death ... gracefully reframes the problem of dying and annihilation. Be open to letting go. Your loved ones are still here. You shall meet them again."
Cinematographer, "The Hidden Hand"
“I am still floating from The Risen. This brilliant work takes the reader slowly and compassionately along in even, well-placed steps, to an understanding of grief and spirituality like nothing I have ever read before. This works reverberates something in me every time I read it. It is a gift to humanity; its light will be a beacon to many.”

"The wisdom and practical suggestions contained in this book will ensure it becomes a treasured companion, a steadying voice in the darkness of loss, gently raising the spirits and guiding the reader first to profound peace, then to hope and finally to unexpected joy.”

Dokumentarfilmer & Journalist, Germany
"Each chapter is a prayer, increasingly powerful, uplifting every inner essence, turning every weight into lightheartedness, every despair into bliss. August Goforth’s ability to use words is the poetry of this extraordinary authorship. His vast knowledge of ancient teachings and techniques enables the reader to benefit from an astounding amount of valuable sources—I would like everybody to read it!”
Film Maker & Journalist
"August Goforth has not written a book; his words are an initiation into the human spirit … a treatise on the power of the life’s deepest experience, a primer for that which is beyond human incarnation. To understand its meaning is to be intimately involved with the mission of the soul and its adventures in life. This is a must read for anyone anywhere seeking answers to life most demanding questions about who we are and why we are here. It gives us the framework for understanding the greater reality and our capacities to embrace the most soulful of feelings, grief … and permission to feel our humanness and the heart that lies at the root of all our relationships.
The whole flavor of the composition reminds me of those eternal lines in Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet :
'Your joy is your sorrow unmasked … When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.' ”
