In this book, the author gives an understanding and inspiring education on the real meaning of grief. He shows how it brings us closer to our greatest sense of self by breaking and re-creating us. By using his broad pastoral background with helping congregants deal with grief, Rabbi Gewirtz shows us the different ways we block our experience of loss and sorrow, and directs us to meet these feelings fully, with compassion and lucidity and integrate the lessons we learn into a more fulfilling life. He teaches a valuable approach to grieving as a method for positive change and renewal, and provides us with non-denominational advice from a spiritual leader, instead of a psychologist.
