A compassionate guide to the experience of loss as an essential growth process

• Explores the nature of loss as a profound mystery shared by all human beings

• Offers sensitive and practical advice for experiencing grief and preparing for the healing journey that follows

• Includes CD of the author reading selections from the text

We grieve only for that which we have loved, and the transient nature of life makes love and loss intimate companions. In Good Grief professional grief educator Deborah Morris Coryell describes grief as the experience of not having anywhere to place our love, of losing a connection, an outlet for our emotion. To heal grief we have to learn how to continue to love in the face of loss.

In this compassionate guide, Coryell gives inspiring examples of how embracing our losses allows us to awaken our most profound connections to other people. Though our society tends to rank losses in a “hierarchy of grief,” she reminds us that all losses must be grieved in their own right and on their own terms, and that we must honor the “small” losses as well as the “big” ones. Paying attention to even the most minute experiences of loss can help us to be more in tune with our responses to the greater ones, allowing us to once again become part of the rhythm of life from which we have become disconnected. This 10th anniversary edition includes a 60-minute CD of the author reading select passages from the text.

Dana Greyson, December 27, 2009 (view all comments by Dana Greyson)
It's hard to know what to do when someone you care about loses someone they love. Often we do nothing because of the fear we'll do or say the wrong thing.

This book (and its previous edition) is a gentle, beautiful, safe and sensitive way to connect those you care about with those they've lost. "Good Grief, Healing Through the Shadow of Loss" transcends religion, and focuses on how those we love live on with us. At the same time, it respects the loss, and approaches with grace, its impact.

It's the friend we want to be, the one who knows the right words to speak at the right time, and when to let the silence of healing flow.

I try to keep a copy on hand, and replace it every time I need to give mine away.
