Virtual Five Week Book Club (All Losses)

August 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Book: Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief by David Kessler

This is a remarkable book. Given that all of us, unless we die young ourselves, will lose someone close to us, grief is a deep and painful wound that we will have to face. The author, a friend and close associate of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross the late author of Death and Dying, in which she elaborated the now very famous “Five Stages of Grief”, has extended his mentor’s work to a Sixth Stage –finding meaning. David Kessler’s groundbreaking book explores many ways to honor a loss by embracing the uniqueness and value of the person or relationship that is gone. To describe these ways as celebrating, learning from, and taking lessons from the person we’ve lost is to do this subtle and deep work a disservice. It’s far more than that. No two losses are the same. David Kessler writes from experience, both as a grief expert and counselor, but also as a man who lost his son to the tragedy of addiction. The book Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief by David Kessler is required for this group and can be purchased online.
