If you have lost a loved one suddenly or traumatically, have experienced extreme trauma yourself, or simply cannot process the death of someone dear to you, the pain can be overwhelming. For most people, grief resolves on its own, given time; but for many others, grief can lead to serious psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, anger, and an intense, inconsolable yearning for the deceased. Prolonged or complicated grief is a serious psychological condition that can leave you feeling dazed, stunned, or in shock for months or even years after your loss. Your sorrow does not diminish with time. In fact, it may even increase. No matter how much support you receive from family and friends, you simply cannot “get over it.” However, there are steps you can take to begin healing. Mindfulness for Prolonged Grief offers you real tools for overcoming the painful symptoms of prolonged grief. In the book, you will learn to relieve your pain by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, improving the quality of your sleep, and reconnecting with your life’s goals. In addition, you will discover how mindfulness exercises and guided meditations can help you process your grief, manage your intense emotions, and deal with loss without resorting to avoidant behaviors (such as addiction) as coping mechanisms. Loss is an extremely painful part of life, but with help you can build the resilience you need to heal, and use your grief as a powerful vehicle for growth.

Grief is natural. But the way we deal with it in the 21st century isn't. Like so many artificial changes in our modern lifestyles, grieving has become all about treating the symptoms with harsh chemical prescription drugs and ineffective therapies. But when we grieve organically, by healing from the inside out, we neutralize the root causes of pain and suffering. Myths about death, dying and the other side are pervasive in our Western society. In reality, healing cellular-level memory from trauma and utilizing alternative therapies give us a balanced foundation from which to move forward. This book debunks Western myths and offers fresh information about easing pain and suffering after loss. It is transforming the way we approach grief so we can heal naturally, move forward, and honor the memories of departed loved ones from a place of peace.
