Catching Your Breath in Grief ...and grace will lead you home is a one-of-a-kind, heart-to-heart invitation to reflect on essential realities of life, deep human needs in soul and spirit, agonies of loss, and the hope and meaning possible in dark times. Written by Thomas Attig, a leading scholar in the field of death, dying, and bereavement, it is a remarkably accessible, even lyrical, treatment of profound truths from philosophy, depth psychology, and spirituality. Its combination of engaging text and uncannily matched, exquisite photographs is unique.
As the author reflects on aspects of a universal story whose themes thread through the world's great spiritual and religious traditions, he invites readers to join in wondering about their own personal losses, loves, and lives. And he guides them in seeking hopeful paths to walk in the next chapters of their own life stories.
