Grieving Mindfully: A Compassionate and Spiritual Guide to Coping with Loss
Grieving Mindfully is the first book to combine spiritual practice and proven step-by-step mindfulness-based techniques to help grieving readers deal with their pain instead of getting trapped in it. The strategies aim to make life more meaningful by acknowledging death and working to embrace life. Many who suffer the death of a loved one cling to the experience of grief long after the actual pain of loss goes away. Ironically, it is often by embracing the experience of grief that people become most fully mindful of life. Grieving readers will find a new understanding of their own process. They will learn about the spiral staircase, a metaphor used to describe the ebb and flow of emotional pain that typically follows loss. This book offers readers ways to cope by using mindfulness exercises and radical acceptance; strategies for making life more meaningful by embracing it.
