A Grief Companion
A Grief Companion offers practical and supportive suggestions for anyone suffering loss. When someone you love dies it can be an overwhelming and deeply emotional time. My memoir, Languages of Loss, grew out of my experience of grief as a bereaved wife, and from the insights I gained from my training and my work as both psychotherapist and yoga teacher. Now this, my latest book, is a guide aimed at helping you navigate and bear the many confusing moods that assail us when we are suffering from grief and losses of any kind. My suggestions and prompts are – I hope – gentle and empathic, yet practical. They are born of my own hard-won understanding and experience of grief and mourning.
It is divided into four sections:
Mind, to help you make sense of and understand your often contradictory feelings; Body, to help you manage those times when the physical self is dominating your responses; Spirit, to encourage connection with the world around you; Everyday for dealing with the practical issues that arise when someone dies.
This is a handbook for anyone seeking help to manage the maelstrom of emotions and the pain that arises when you lose someone you love.
