6 Mindful Strategies to Recover from the Shock of Loss

By Heather Stang, MA, C-IAYT

Posted: March 30, 2011

It is easy to become overwhelme­d in the face of loss and world crisis, and yet we have this gift of mindfulnes­s to keep us sane and even grow through it all. Your 6 points are spot on. We have to have support, we have to get to know ourselves better, and we have to envision (and eventually act) on the reconstruc­ted life after loss.

I teach Yoga for Grief (which relates to point 6: Practice Mindfulnes­s), and am posting 8 mindfulnes­s based exercises for grief. I will read your book and will add it to my mindful grief resource list. Thank you for all you do! The world is better for it.
