Praise for Doing Grief in Real Life
“Shea has written a book that speaks to the heart and soul of who we are as humans. The compass she offers us for navigating the change and loss that we will all experience is nothing short of life-changing. And Shea does it with a voice that embraces readers and makes them feel like they are sitting in their living room with her as she shares her wisdom. Doing Grief in Real Life will be a gift to all readers who have the good fortune to open up its pages.”
~ Dr. David Boninger, Ph.D.
“Tour de Force”
“Shea Darian has transformed her own grief and loss into a tour de force. Doing Grief in Real Life is chocked full of resources, ideas and prompts for navigating grief and has something for everyone. (The) personal stories, her own and others, that show how people survive grief and loss…gave me hope.”
~ Peggy O’Mara, former editor and publisher of Mothering Magazine and author of Natural Family Living
“A Sure Guide”
“Shea Darian has done something remarkable–created a well-written, practical, soulful book designed for those who are actively grieving and those who want to know about the process of grief intellectually for themselves and others. Her emphasis on the wholeness of grief–body, mind, heart and spirit, is spot on. Her Model of Adaptive Grieving Dynamics is a welcome and timely addition to the field of grief. Doing Grief in Real Life is a sure guide, just as she is.“
~ Jim Miller, D.Min., founder of Willowgreen, author of When Mourning Dawns and The Art of Being a Healing Presence
