“Grief and loss are dreaded experiences that many wish to either avoid or to rapidly solve. In Grieving Mindfully, Kumar offers the alternative of welcoming the experience as an opportunity to develop our humanity. This book offers a path to healthy grieving for people encountering losses of many kinds.”
—Richard Tedeschi, Ph.D., professor of psychology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte
“Kumar’s approach to dealing with grief and loss is creative and radically transformative. Drawing on his experience as a practicing psychologist and his training in the Buddhist enlightenment tradition, he suggests that instead of hiding from our grief, trying to forget or get over it, we take a more demanding and rewarding path—walking straight through grief with mindful awareness, fearless observance, and profound compassion. His book has the potential to bring strength and healing to the millions who grieve and to revolutionize the approach of psychologists and counselors working with those in profound grief.”
—Glenn H Mullin, Buddhist meditation teacher and author of Living in the Face of Death: The Tibetan Tradition
