My favourite book on grief is Grieving Mindfully by Sameet Kumar. He notes that “love and grief are inextricably intertwined.” It is good to remind ourselves that because we love, we grief. If our love is deep, our grief is deep. Just as love is a natural part of being human, so is grief. Grief is not something that we need to “move on” from, rather to process and to “be” with whatever comes in the here and now. I have found that when my clients are able to make space to experience their grief, their grief and loss can transform how they live.
