|From The Publisher*||In this book that offers relief to anyone moving though intense grief and loss, Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh shares accessible, comforting words of wisdom on how to transform our suffering in the face of death.|
In the immediate aftermath of a loss, sometimes it is all we can do to keep breathing. Internationally-beloved Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh's down-to-earth teachings challenge our conventional ways of looking at dying, and show us the gentle path to healing and transformation.
This book offers guidance on how to work through the storm of emotions surrounding the death of a loved one and offers simple but powerful practices--starting with mindful breathing and mindful walking--that can help us. The book is rounded out by concrete ways to help us reconcile with death (and loss), feel connected to our loved one long after they have let go of their physical form, and transform our grief into joy.
