Would you listen to Grieving Mindfully: A Compassionate and Spiritual Guide to Coping with Loss again? Why?
I listened to it 3 times already and will again. It's amazing and the author is so in touch with the reality of how individual the experience of grief is for each person and each loss. And I am having trouble functioning 4 1/2 years after my father's death and the author has many years of experience and doesn't offer one "plan" or way "through" the grief. Because it doesn't work that way. At least not honestly. Our culture is a bit constrained when it comes to processing grief--stay strong, you'll get through this, we're never given more than we can handle. Blah, blah. But he does quote one who says, "this too shall pass." And all things do eventually.
What other book might you compare Grieving Mindfully: A Compassionate and Spiritual Guide to Coping with Loss to and why?
It's not like anything I've come across, but some other mindfulness based meditation material would be close.
Have you listened to any of Andrew Mulcare’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
First time. I actually thought it was the author. He seemed very engaged with the material.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I didn't really have the opportunity to; it wasn't really that kind of material. Better to listen and process what the doctor shared and then go back for more. But I wanted the actual book after listening 3 times.
Any additional comments?
Yes, I got the paperback and a journal by the same author and found another paperback. Anyone in counseling today should read this book from basic to the top psychiatrist. We will all grieve and it can really take your life on a course you are not prepared for. Being able to help others effectively is important.
