Publisher's Summary

Grief is a personal journey, never the same for any two people and as unique as your life and your relationships. Although loss is an inevitable part of life, how you approach this fact can make the difference between meaningless pain and the manifestation of understanding and wisdom. This audiobook shares a mindful approach to dealing with grief that can help you make that difference.

By walking this mindful path, you will discover that you are capable of transforming and healing the grief you carry and finding the spiritual and emotional resilience you need to move through this challenging time. These mindfulness practices, explained here in simple and practical language, will help you bear your time of grief. But they will do more than that, too. They will guide you to a life more fully lived, with more meaning. These simple practices will help you experience what richness comes from asking deeper questions about loss and about life.

Grief Rebound

Would you listen to Grieving Mindfully: A Compassionate and Spiritual Guide to Coping with Loss again? Why?

I listened to it 3 times already and will again. It's amazing and the author is so in touch with the reality of how individual the experience of grief is for each person and each loss. And I am having trouble functioning 4 1/2 years after my father's death and the author has many years of experience and doesn't offer one "plan" or way "through" the grief. Because it doesn't work that way. At least not honestly. Our culture is a bit constrained when it comes to processing grief--stay strong, you'll get through this, we're never given more than we can handle. Blah, blah. But he does quote one who says, "this too shall pass." And all things do eventually.

What other book might you compare Grieving Mindfully: A Compassionate and Spiritual Guide to Coping with Loss to and why?

It's not like anything I've come across, but some other mindfulness based meditation material would be close.

Have you listened to any of Andrew Mulcare’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First time. I actually thought it was the author. He seemed very engaged with the material.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't really have the opportunity to; it wasn't really that kind of material. Better to listen and process what the doctor shared and then go back for more. But I wanted the actual book after listening 3 times.

Any additional comments?

Yes, I got the paperback and a journal by the same author and found another paperback. Anyone in counseling today should read this book from basic to the top psychiatrist. We will all grieve and it can really take your life on a course you are not prepared for. Being able to help others effectively is important.

Finally- A Grief Book I would recommend!

After reading about 12 different "Grief" books, this one spoke to me and explained things in a very relatable way. Great for self help:awareness but also for friends and loves to read so they will understand grief and how to be supportive. Thank you!

Good for fresh loss

This is a great read for someone who just lost a loved one, or is preparing to. I lost my mom four years ago and dad two years ago, along with two miscarriages. I was referred to this book by my therapist, but found it not as helpful as I hoped; I believe this is solely due to my losses being relatively long ago compared to the fresh context.

A BUDDHISM. APPROACH

Readers or listeners need to be aware that this book is all about BUDDHISM, which I am not opposed to, but it is not helpful at this time. My son just died and I need to hear words of comfort, not teachings of a belief system. It should have been included in the description. I feel like I was being pushed into a belief system instead of helping me with the sudden death of my son. I'm in extreme pain, and don't need this. I had to go through returning it and trying to find something else. Not a good situation for someone in trauma.
