Review

"Heather Stang offers those who are grieving a wise and practicalguide. The stories, teachings and meditations in this book will help you find your own inner strength and awakening heart in the midst of greatloss."
 - Tara Brach, Ph.D.  Author of RadicalAcceptance and True Refuge

"Intellectually we know we must release that which dies.  But how?  Mindfulness and Grief can accompany you in your grieving, providing wise and compassionateguidance that will support you in this profound and intimate process ofletting go."
Jonathan Foust Former President, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health

"Heather Stang offers considerable hope for those who might be lost tothe process of grief.  Not only does she offer hope - she offers ways to be with grief that are effective and that transform it at the sametime.  Embracing the moment and being present to what is happeningrather than despairing in it are just one small but powerful aspect.  Ihighly recommend this book."
- Michael Lee, M.A. Founder, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy

"Perfect for the beginner, Stang offers instruction that is easy tofollow and understand. This book is also appropriate for the experienced mindfulness practitioner as it provides a framework around using yourestablished practice to work with grief and loss. It can be easy to drop practices that support us when we are experiencing loss and stress and Mndfulness & Grief gives an opportunity to re-enter practice at a slow pace. No matteryour experience with meditation and/or mindfulness, Stang does awonderful job of normalizing and supporting the grieving process. Thisis a great read for anyone, as we all experience loss in our lives."

From the Author

This book is based on the 8-week Mindfulness & Grief Groupthat I developed and facilitate. Each week is now a chapter in the book, and combineseasy to understand mindfulness instructions and stories with relevantexercises. There is also a day-long retreat to help you dive deep intomindfulness practice.

As you probably know, grief does not follow a schedule.Rather it shows up when you expect it - such as holidays, birthdays andanniversaries - and it also shows up when you don't expect it. This book will leadyou through mindfulness-based exercises that you can do in the comfort of your own home, as wellas exercises that you can draw upon at work or in the grocery store if you unexpectedlyfeel difficult emotions arise. Readers of the book you can also access audiorecordings of key exercises on my website at mindfulnessandgrief.com.

When I sat down to write Mindfulness & Grief, I quickly realizedthat although I provide the structure for my groups, it is the participants thatbring heart to the work. It only makes sense to include their stories alongsidethe practical exercises that you will find in this book. Although each of us grievesin our own unique way, I imagine you may recognize some of your experience intheirs.

Most of the stories included in this book are a result ofinterviews I conducted with individual participants from groups I facilitated 4years prior. I wanted to give you a longitudinal view of how mindfulness can beapplied to grief over time. It was very heartening to find that each person Ispoke to still uses one form of mindfulness or another - even four years later- and that each person found the practice to be life-changing. While it may bedifficult for you to imagine what your life will be like four years from now, Ihope their stories provide you with hope and inspiration.

Mindfulness & Grief is accessible to anyone, regardlessof physical fitness or spiritual beliefs. You don't need to be flexibleof calm to benefit from this book. It is my deepest hope that thepractices within this book will help reduce your suffering andcontribute to ahealthy life after loss.
