Deborah Grassman is CEO of Opus Peace, a Non-Profit Organization dedicated to “Unmourned grief and unforgiven guilt: Healing the trauma of soul injury.” For nearly 30 years, she was the Director of the Hospice program at Bay Pines VA in St. Petersburg, Florida and personally took care of 10,000 dying veterans. She now provides education and consultation throughout the country. Deborah’s work is lauded by the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO): “Deborah’s work has dramatically and almost singlehandedly increased awareness of Veterans and their unique end-of-life issues. Additionally, her insights into the family’s experience offers perspectives for understanding how these experiences can impact and complicate grief and bereavement.” Deborah’s book, Peace at Last: Stories of Hope and Healing for Veterans and her DVD presentation Wounded Warriors: Their Last Battle is used in hospices across the country to educate hospice professionals and volunteers on the “soul repair” many veterans and their families face throughout their lives – giving a renewed sense of the nature of the sacrifice our veterans made to serve our country. Her book, The Hero Within: Redeeming the Destiny We Were Born to Fulfill describes the processes of abiding, reckoning, and beholding our interior hero.
