If you love, you will grieve‚Äö√Ñ√Æand nothing is more mysteriously central to becoming fully human.¬¨‚Ä†
When a loved one dies, the pain of loss can feel unbearable‚Äö√Ñ√Æespecially in the case of a traumatizing death that leaves us shouting, ‚Äö√Ñ√∫NO!‚Äö√Ñ√π with every fiber of our body. The process of grieving can feel wild and nonlinear‚Äö√Ñ√Æand often lasts for much longer than other people, the nonbereaved, tell us it should.
Organized into fifty-two short chapters, Bearing the Unbearable is a companion for life‚Äö√Ñ√¥s most difficult times, revealing how grief can open our hearts to connection, compassion, and the very essence of our shared humanity. Dr. Joanne Cacciatore‚Äö√Ñ√Æbereavement educator, researcher, Zen priest, and leading counselor in the field‚Äö√Ñ√Æaccompanies us along the heartbreaking path of love, loss, and grief. Through moving stories of her encounters with grief over decades of supporting individuals, families, and communities‚Äö√Ñ√Æas well as her own experience with loss‚Äö√Ñ√ÆCacciatore opens a space to process, integrate, and deeply honor our grief.
Not just for the bereaved,¬¨‚Ä†Bearing the Unbearable¬¨‚Ä†will be required reading for grief counselors, therapists and social workers, clergy of all varieties, educators, academics, and medical professionals. Organized into fifty-two accessible and stand-alone chapters, this book is also perfect for being read aloud in support groups.
