Dealing with loss and grief?
Discover your path to living with it in peace.

There are no wrong ways to feel grief. Everybody's grief stew is their own recipe, with their own unique flavours. There are constructive ways of dealing with grief - and some not-so-constructive ways. With this guide, you will discover many practical and helpful things you can do to address the chaos of emotions as well as meaningful ways to express your love for your loved one.

Finding the courage to authentically deal with your grief in the face of a world that dismisses your loss, seems impossible. Friends disappear. Many are insensitive, judgmental and hurtful. Your pain is so deep you can’t imagine your grief as a transformative opportunity, like the blogs suggest. You find yourself alone and lost in the dark valley of grief. It’s probably the most difficult thing you’ll deal with in life.

After confronting a parade of losses and repeatedly having to do the hard work of dealing with my grief, Serenity McLean wrote this guide to help others find their way to living with their loss in peace and show how to deal with the unpredicatable emotion. The switch from tumultuous sorrow and pain to the serenity and sweetness of remembering won’t come overnight. But it will come. You will find peace offers the briefest of visits as a casual acquaintance at first, but over time you will form a long-lasting relationship with peace and it will become a constant companion.

About the Author

Serenity McLean grew up in Ontario and moved to western Canada in 2004. She returned to Ontario in 2017. With a Masters degree in Adult Education, Serenity worked in various roles at several colleges. She also worked in the Information Technology sector predominantly in project management. She wrote her first fictional book just before getting laid off in an economic downturn. She made a career change – committing her time to writing, blogging, and helping others along the path of publication. She took a hiatus from writing to care for her terminally ill mother and deal with a long series of losses. Born of the pain and sorrow of her grief, and combined with her education background, she wrote Honest Grief as a way to help others facing the hurt of deep losses. The additional pain inflicted by those around her who didn’t understand grief or the deep gaping wounds of one who grieves inspired her to write a companion book, Supporting Honest Grief (to be released in 2018). It is written specifically for people who have a grieving friend. Along with art (painting) and photography, Serenity is a dog lover and enjoyed the sunny disposition of golden retrievers for over thirty years. Currently, she lives with one sweet goldie that loves to play hide and seek, ball chase, and of course, swimming. In the summer months, Serenity and her dog can be found on the water and under the sun.
