Kimberley Brown is the guest on this episode which focuses on how to navigate grief and loss. Kim is a popular meditation teacher and author. She leads classes and workshops that emphasize the power of compassion and kindness to reconnect us to ourselves and others.
 
She studies in both the Tibetan and Insight schools of Buddhism and is a Certified Mindfulness Instructor.
 
Kim and Melanie talk all about her newest book, titled Navigating Grief and Loss: 25 Buddhist Practices to Keep Your Heart Open to Yourself and Others.
 
She’s a lovely teacher who’s written a very accessible book to help guide folks through how to feel safe feeling all of our emotions and understanding how to be compassionate and kind to ourselves, no matter what shows up.
 
For the truth is that this is when healing begins.
 
Her book chapters are titled by different kinds of losses, including
  • sudden death, or conversely,
  • when you know it’s coming,
  • losing a child or grandchild,
  • if your family disappoints you,
  • grieving for strangers,
  • and beloved pets, among others.
 
One of the things that Buddhism teaches is that “everything is impermanent and death can happen at any moment, to anyone, at any age … it’s the nature of life,” as Kim writes.
 
Further, “for us to live fully with this unsettling truth requires that we acknowledge impermanence and change, be willing to mourn loss and face grief, and meet the unexpected with gentleness rather than denial or blame.
 
Kim and Melanie share ideas for how to deal with emotions such as anger, compassion, anticipatory grief, collective grief, and how to hold our grief during the holidays.
 
This is a lovely show, with many ideas to ponder.
