Grief is the deep, dark, feelings and thoughts that occur as a natural consequence of loss. We must feel it in our heart and body to heal it. Grief lives in the body, choking the life force and constricting peace and freedom.
If you are a professional working with grieving people, "A New Mourning: Discover the Gifts of Grief" gives you four tools to support your clients:
1. Awareness that discovery and curiosity about gifts in grief can lighten grief.
2. Awareness that the body holds one's grief as well as a method to release it.
3. The knowledge that self-care is the foundation for moving beyond your grief into self-love.
4. Tools to replace longing with a new love connection using object permanence as Oneness.
Mindful Grieving teaches us to bring resources into the vortex of grief, with confidence, so grief becomes a transformative process instead of one that stunts our growth.
Intentional Mourning moves the deep, dark feelings and thoughts, out of our bodies. When we intentionally mourn, the tools of gratitude, discovery, curiosity, and self-care create moments of kindness, love, and even joy in the midst of this dark cocoon of grief.
Fragile Grief occurs when our brain begins to function once again.
Gentle Grief is the relief that, just as the sun comes up every morning, we have stepped into a New Mourning.
Author Georgena Eggleston states, "How I wish you, the Grieving One, were in a place where this book was not needed. I know the heart, mind, and gut-wrenching pain of grief. You have my profound compassion, empathy, and admiration for the progress you have made that brought you to this place of holding A New Mourning in your hands."
