The Wisdom of Grief is a spiritual self-help book for the bereaved about how to recognize and maximize the opportunities for transformation in this universal human experience. Gripping, honest, and inspirational, it offers knowledge and specific contemplations to help grievers move fluidly through this often painful but potentially life expanding experience. Part memoir of complicated grief, part professional perspective on grieving, part guidebook through the transcendental journey of grief, the Wisdom of Grief is a map, guiding us gently to a place beyond fear, where an immense treasure lies, waiting to be unearthed.
