Book Reveals Three Forgotten Truths to Heal Grief
Fort Collins, CO… Companion Press announces the publication of a new book entitled The Paradoxes of Mourning: Healing Your Grief with Three Forgotten Truths, by renowned grief educator Dr. Alan Wolfelt.
The book reveals our current culture’s dominant misunderstandings about grief and loss. We’re told to be strong when what we really need is to be vulnerable. We’re told to think positive when what we really need is to befriend the pain. And we’re told to seek closure when what we really need is to welcome our natural and necessary grief.
The Paradoxes of Mourning discusses three Truths that grieving people used to know and respect but in the last century seem to have forgotten:
Truth One: You must say hello before you can say goodbye.
Truth Two: You must make friends with the darkness before you can enter the light.
Truth Three: You must go backward before you can go forward.
In the tradition of the Four Agreements and the Seven Habits, this compassionate and inspiring guidebook gives readers the three keys that unlock the door to hope and healing.
Author, educator, and grief counselor Dr. Alan Wolfelt serves as Director of the Center for Loss and Life Transition in Fort Collins, Colorado. The author of Understanding Your Grief and many other books for grief caregivers and mourners, Dr. Wolfelt is committed to helping people mourn well so they can live well and love well. He is available for interviews on the paradoxes of mourning.
The Paradoxes of Mourning is priced at $15.95 U.S. To order and to learn more about Dr. Wolfelt’s books on grief and loss, visit www.centerforloss.com or call (970) 226-6050.
