Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Sameet Kumar's Mindfulness and Prolonged Grief Workbook is a welcome and important resource for both those struggling to cope with prolonged grief themselves and for the helping professionals who are advising and supporting them.”
Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Lovingkindness
 

“Sameet Kumar has been working for many years as a psychologist and counselor in the field of dealing with this grief. In his wonderful new book Mindfulness and Prolonged Grief, he shares many of the approaches to inner healing that he has developed in his practice. In particular, he demonstrates how the ancient Buddhist methods of mindfulness meditation can be used to cure both body and mind when the overwhelming darkness of grief, depression, and hopelessness sets in. His book is both practical and immediate in its presentation, offering medical practitioners and patients alike a clear guide to a traditional healing technology that has worked for centuries, and is perhaps even more relevant today than ever before.”
Glenn Mullin, author of Living in the Face of Death and The Fourteen Dalai Lamas: A Sacred Legacy of Reincarnation
