Overview

The Mindfulness & Grief book will help you begin the process of healing. You will learn how to cope with the pain of loss and embark on a unique healing journey that may lead to unimaginable posttraumatic growth.

Grief is a natural reaction to loss, but the experience can be truly disruptive for your mind, body and spirit. Mindfulness is a natural remedy that will help you reduce suffering and learn how to cope with life after loss. Written in an 8-week format, the book also includes instructions for a personal day-long retreat. Each week focuses on a theme, and the reader is encouraged to go at their own pace. Topics include conscious relaxation, compassion and forgiveness, and inquiry into “who am I now?” This compassionate and well-researched grief book offers inspirational personal stories and exercises designed to:

  • Ease your physical symptoms of grief
  • Calm your mind and help you regulate difficult emotions
  • Improve your present moment awareness
  • Increase compassion toward yourself and others
  • Help you make meaning from your loss
  • Develop your new self-narrative for moving forward

What They Are Saying…

Heather Stang offers those who are grieving a wise and practical guide. The stories, teachings and meditations in this book will help you find your own inner strength and awakening heart in the midst of great loss.

Tara Brach, Ph.D.  Author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

Intellectually we know we must release that which dies.  But how?  Mindfulness and Grief can accompany you in your grieving, providing wise and compassionate guidance that will support you in this profound and intimate process of letting go.

Jonathan Foust Former President, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health

Heather Stang offers considerable hope for those who might be lost to the process of grief.  Not only does she offer hope – she offers ways to be with grief that are effective and that transform it at the same time.  Embracing the moment and being present to what is happening rather than despairing in it are just one small but powerful aspect.  I highly recommend this book.

From the Book Cover

Without proper support, navigating the icy waters of grief may feel impossible. If you are grieving, you may find it difficult to concentrate, as your mind struggles to make sense of your life after loss. Mindfulness meditation can restore hope and reduce your suffering by offering a compassionate safe haven for healing and self-reflection. While nobody can predict the path of someone else’s grief, this book will gently guide you through your unique experience of grief with simple mindfulness-based exercises to restore your mind, body, and spirit. These meditations will help you to cope with the pain of loss, and embark on a healing journey. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of grief, and the guided meditations will calm the mind and increase clarity and focus. The reflective practice of mindfulness will help you to reframe your personal narrative and adapt to life after a bereavement.
