DESCRIPTION

If you love someone who has died, this book is for you. If you love someone who may die, this book is for you. If you love, you will grieve—and this book is for you.A timeless book, destined to become a classic.Grief and love are two expressions of the same process—and nothing is more mysteriously central to becoming fully human. For any who love, grieving is all but inevitable. When a loved one dies, the pain of loss can feel unbearable—especially in the case of a traumatizing death that leaves us shouting NO! with every fiber of our body. Grief commands our attention and erupts unpredictably, inescapably. The process of grieving can feel wild and nonlinear—and often lasts for much longer than other people, the non-bereaved, tell us it should. And it is important.Dr. Joanne Cacciatore, a Zen priest, bereavement educator, researcher, and leading counselor in the field, accompanies us in the painful process of transformation through love, loss, and grief. This beautifully-written companion for life’s most difficult time is heartrending and utterly healing—revealing, in an undeniably personal way, how grief can open our hearts to interconnection, compassion, and the very essence of our shared humanity. Through generous, insightful writing and moving stories of her encounters with grief over decades of supporting individuals, families, and communities—as well as her own experience with loss—Cacciatore opens a space for us to process, integrate, and deeply honor our own grief.Not just for the bereaved, Bearing the Unbearable will be required reading for grief counselors, therapists and social workers, clergy of all varieties, educators, academics, and medical professionals. Organized into 52 accessible and stand-alone chapters, this book is also perfect for being read aloud in support groups.

Why hold a conference on trauma? Trauma often overwhelms both bodies and hearts - it creates deep and varied wounds, which need compassionate tending. Scripture portrays many detailed, anguishing accounts of trauma in the lives of God's people, and so invites hurting persons in.

There are some days, however, when the pain and torment are so great that surviving even twenty-four hours seems impossible. Organized into fifty-two short chapters, Bearing the Unbearable is a companion for life's most difficult times, revealing how grief can open our hearts to connection, compassion, and the very essence of our shared humanity. Trauma: Bearing the Unbearable. Why hold a conference on trauma? Trauma often overwhelms both bodies and hearts - it creates deep and varied wounds, which need compassionate tending.
