9780692404164: Spark Seekers: Mourning with meaning; Living with light

Whether grieving the loss of a loved one, or confronting our own mortality, we all come face-to-face with the darkness of death at some point during life’s complicated journey.

And Rabbi Baruch HaLevi, DMin, is no exception. During a long career in which he has guided countless others through the process of loss and bereavement, he faced two devastating losses of his own when, two decades apart, his grandmother and father tragically took their own lives.

But when the shadows of grief took hold, "Rabbi B" dedicated his life to breaking this cycle, searching within the darkness rather than turning away. By transforming his mourning into meaning, he discovered the sparks that lie within, inspiring thousands of others along the way.

Featuring a mixture of personal stories and enlightening perspectives on love and loss, Spark Seekers serves as a companion for anyone, at any point along the grief journey, seeking to emerge from death’s darkness with newfound inspiration, purpose and, life.

From preparing for the end of life to exploring a myriad of meaningful mourning practices, this guide, coauthored by hospice bereavement counselor Ellen Frankel LCSW, combines equal parts inspiration and practical how-tos, paving the way for a new approach for looking at dying, death, and life after loss in the twenty-first century.

From the Author:

We don't have a choice about the darkness that descends in the wake of losing someone we love, but we do have a choice to make: whether or not we will enter the darkness, seek sparks of light, and return to life.

I have seen individuals and families crumble under the weight of death's darkness. Alternately, I have witnessed the most courageous and inspirational expressions of what human beings are capable of when facing devastation. I have watched people transform within the darkness. I have witnessed individuals choose to live with more, not less, love and joy under the burden of grief. I have watched families grow closer and communities grow stronger as they rally to support one another. I have seen survivors of loss choose to find meaning within the darkness when everything within them believed there was none. 
I have seen people rise up and live with even greater awareness, intention, and passion than they did before their losses. These people have taught me that in the darkest recesses of suffering, there's light in the form of opportunities and possibilities, potential and purpose, and beauty and blessings. There are sparks waiting for us to discover and carry out of the darkness.

From the Inside Flap:

Nearly three decades ago, Rabbi Baruch HaLevi, aka "Rabbi B," and his family were shattered after the suicide of his paternal grandmother --a  tragedy that would repeat itself twenty years later when his father took his own life. These pivotal losses served as a catalyst for him to enter into the depths of loss and despair, emerging with a newfound wisdom that there are possibilities within our losses, blessings within our curses and beauty even within the darkness of our suffering.  These insights became both Rabbi B's passion and purpose - to guide others through the darkness of grief, inspiring them to find sparks of light within life's most difficult moments. Now through Spark Seekers, coauthored by bereavement counselor Ellen Frankel, LCSW, Rabbi B shares new perspectives on grief and loss, as well as valuable and practical insights spanning different religions and spiritual traditions, for anyone seeking to emerge from death's darkness into life's light with meaning, purpose and inspiration.
