Banyen's Description: 

If you know someone who has suffered loss and is experiencing grief, simply sending a card or flowers may seem insufficient. Many people are unsure how to comfort a friend or loved-one in times of loss. This special book is filled with inspirational wisdom, practical self-help for healing, and makes a meaningful and comforting gift. Written by psychotherapist and grief expert Alexandra Kennedy, Honoring Grief provides powerful and compassionate advice for dealing with loss. Compatible with any religious or spiritual orientation, this book aims to help readers create a sanctuary—a special space where they are free to work through the difficult emotions that accompany grief.

We discover that grief has its own nature, rhythm, and timing; it resists our attempts to control it. We also discover that grief involves more ongoing changes in our lives than we could have ever imagined. It reaches into every part of our lives—our family, relationships, work, health, sleep, emotions, and sense of identity. No part of our lives is left untouched.

The act of grieving can be overwhelming. That’s why the self-help tips in this book are simple, brief, and effective—ideal for anyone suffering the emotionally and physically exhausting effects of grief.

In the heart swollen with grief there is room for only a few words that remind us of the divinity of love and the kindness it breeds. Alexandra offers these finely wrought (on the hard anvil of need, with the soft-tipped brush of the heart) words to heal what can never be broken. —Stephen Levine, from the foreword

Grief is the way that loss heals. In Honoring Grief, Alexandra Kennedy offers us a sanctuary in which to process our losses and find healing. This simple-to-use, step-by-step workbook on the healing of grief can be a nightlight for people in dark times.” —Rachel Naomi Remen, author of Kitchen Table Wisdom
