Overview

In 2006, author Elizabeth Weber, experienced the extraordinary circumstance of losing her husband to cancer while house-sitting.
Without any friends or family nearby, she found the starkness of her predicament only served to amplify her mourning process.

Consequently, Elizabeth found herself going through what Joseph Campbell called "The Supreme Ordeal" in his study of "The Hero's Journey." Fortunately, she did not have to go through it completely alone. True to the mythological tales, a mentor mysteriously appeared in her life who offered a type of coaching called "The Seasons of Change" which utilizes "Natures Wisdom to Navigate through Life's Inevitable Ups and Downs."

With twelve weeks of coaching as a jumpstart, Elizabeth was able to navigate her way deep into the heart of mourning. However, she soon found that finding her way out of mourning was a different story. Elizabeth's memoir, A Beautiful Mourning, is about her deeply transformative journey both into and, perhaps more importantly, out of the mourning process. Elizabeth has "Returned with the Elixir" to inspire anyone who has loved and lost-to live and love again!

This book, for me, was terrible. I sympothize with this woman who is dealing with the loss of her husband. Having lost someone very dear to me, I couldn't bear to read past page 3.

Greiving is common to all but learning HOW to grieve is rarely taught when growing up. This short, easy to read book, provides an insightful, authentic, deeply loving process for the passage through mourning for a lost loved one. Regardless of age, this book is a gem to give to anyone who is mourning. And when one is expecting the loss of a loved one, put this book by the bedside for the time when it becomes the solace one thinks doesn't exist. I personally know the author. She lived every moment exactly as she wrote it. This is a beautiful "Oh so true" story and guide for all those on the journey through death and rebirth.
