Noted psychotherapist François Weller provides an indispensable guide to navigate the deep waters of sadness and loss in this lyrical yet practical guide to mastering the art of mourningDescribing how Western patterns of amnesia and anesthesia affect our ability to cope with personal and collective grief, Weller reveals the new vitality we can encounter when we welcome, rather than fear, the pain of lossBy moving people, stories, poetry, and insightful reflections he leads us into the energy center of deep pain and healing and an intensification of communion with each other and our planet that lie next to it.The Sadness Point Indian who explains that pain has always been communal and illustrates how we need healing by touching others, an atmosphere of compassion, and ritual comfort in order to properly metabolize our griefWeller describes how we often hide from our world’s pain, wrapping it in a secret cloak of shameThis causes sadness to linger unspoken in our body, weighing on us and pulling us into the territory of depression and death.We came to fear, sorrow and feeling too alone in the face of an encounter with the powerful energies of sadnessThose who work with bereaved people, who have experienced the loss of a loved one, who are crying, the continuing destruction of our planet, or who suffer the cumulative trauma of a lifetime will appreciate the discussion of obstacles to bereavement work as privatized from pain, the lack of collective rituals, a sense of fear, and culturally restrictive range of emotions.Weller emphasizes the intimate connection between grief and gratitude, sadness and intimacyIn addition to showing us that the greatest gifts are often hidden in the things we avoid, it offers powerful tools and rituals and a list of resources to help us turn pain into a force that allows us to live and love more fully
