Buddhism has been applied to everything from parenting to golf, but until now no one has offered Buddhist principles as a healing path through divorce. In Storms Can't Hurt the Sky, Gabriel Cohen bravely delves into his personal experience-along with insights from Buddhist masters, parables, humor, social science studies, and interviews with other divorcés-to provide a practical and very helpful guide to surviving the pain of any break-up. Focusing on the emotions most common in the dissolution of a relationship-anger, resentment, loss, and grief-Storms Can't Hurt the Sky shows how thinking about these feelings in surprisingly different ways can lead to a radically better experience. This compulsively readable book offers sound advice and much-needed empathy for anyone dealing with a break-up.

About the Author:

Gabriel Cohen has written for the New York Times and Time Out New York and has taught writing at NYU. The author of three novels, he lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Review:

"This is a great addition to the tool kit that everyone needs when they get divorced. Well done!"--Katherine Lanpher, author of "Leap Days" and a contributing editor at "More" magazine

"Personal and quietly startling..."Storms Can't Hurt the Sky" is part memoir and part self-help book...It blends a frank examination of his marriage with equal parts enthusiastic introduction to Buddhist teachings and outsider's skepticism."--"The New York Times"

"Cohen's compelling account of the dissolution of his marriage illustrates important Buddhist teachings--and offers valuable advice on how these teachings can ease the pain for anyone undergoing this critical transition."--Susan Piver, meditation teacher, author of "How Not to Be Afraid of Your Own Life" and "The Hard Questions"

"In clear, propulsive prose, Cohen bravely revisits his own divorce and shares the Buddhist teachings that helped him through it. The book is both an act of forgiveness and a plea for same. This is a real page-turner."--Virginia Vitzthum, former Salon.com columnist and author of "I Love You, Let's Meet: Adventures in Online Dating"

"Sound advice and short chapters fill [Cohen's] narrative of recovery, unadorned by bullet-pointed lists, side-bars or 'get-enlightened-quick scheme[s], ' which should do much to engage readers and keep them that way...Encouraging and accessible throughout, Cohen's book will make a useful tool for readers going through a difficult break-up."--"PublishersWeekly.com" 4/21/08

"I was deeply moved by this book. In sharing an intimately personal account of his journey through divorce, author Gabriel Cohen offers a precious gift to anyone who has ever loved and lost. Unexpectedly, you will also discover here a valuable 'how-to' guide to a "happy" marriage. Along the way, you will find an exceptionally lucid and succinct introduction into Buddhism. "Storms Can't Hurt the Sky" accomplishes all of this with the warmth, humor, pain, and hope of a masterful novel."--Glenn Wallis, PhD, author of "Basic Teachings of the Buddha," "The Dhammapada: Verses on the Way," and "Mediating the Power of Buddhas"

"Gabriel Cohen bravely delves into his personal experience...This compulsively readable book offers sound advice and much-needed empathy for anyone dealing with a break-up."--DivorceDiva blog

"Anybody who has ever experienced the breakdown of a relationship, let alone a divorce, will find that once started, this book is impossible to put down. A deeply personal and honest account of one man's journey that becomes universal...This is an inspirational and insightful story."--"Mandala"

"A practical, down-to-earth guide."--"Hillsdale Independent," 5/23/08


"Offers practical suggestions for people in difficult relationships...evocative and illuminating memoir-cum-guidebook...Cohen has a knack for seamlessly weaving together conceptual material and personal anecdotes. In the end, the book speaks not only to people struggling through the trauma of divorce but also to anyone interested in how Buddhist teachings apply to everyday life."--"Tricycle"


"Highly readable yet subtle book...Very grounded and straightforward...An enjoyable book, well worth reading."--"The Middle Way," August 2008
