Description

In this groundbreaking new work, David Kessler - an expert on grief and the coauthor with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross of the iconic On Grief and Grieving - journeys beyond the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage: meaning.

In 1969, Elisabeth Kübler Ross first identified the stages of dying in her transformative book On Death and Dying. Decades later, she and David Kessler wrote the classic On Grief and Grieving, introducing the stages of grief with the same transformative pragmatism and compassion. Now, based on hard-earned personal experiences, as well as knowledge and wisdom earned through decades of work with the grieving, Kessler introduces a critical sixth stage.

Many people look for “closure” after a loss. Kessler argues that it’s finding meaning beyond the stages of grief most of us are familiar with - denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance - that can transform grief into a more peaceful and hopeful experience.

In this audiobook, Kessler gives listeners a road map to remembering those who have died with more love than pain; he shows us how to move forward in a way that honors our loved ones. Kessler’s insight is both professional and intensely personal. His journey with grief began when, as a child, he witnessed a mass shooting at the same time his mother was dying. For most of his life, Kessler taught physicians, nurses, counselors, police, and first responders about end of life, trauma, and grief, as well as leading talks and retreats for those experiencing grief. Despite his knowledge, his life was upended by the sudden death of his 21-year-old son.

How does the grief expert handle such a tragic loss? He knew he had to find a way through this unexpected, devastating loss, a way that would honor his son. That, ultimately, was the sixth state of grief - meaning. In Finding Meaning, Kessler shares the insights, collective wisdom, and powerful tools that will help those experiencing loss.

Finding Meaning is a necessary addition to grief literature and a vital guide to healing from tremendous loss. This is an inspiring, deeply intelligent must-hear for anyone looking to journey away from suffering, through loss, and toward meaning.

A Beacon of Light Leading Out of Despair

Of all the books I've read since the death of my daughter, almost two years ago now, this has been the most meaningful and helpful for me. David Kessler has tapped into every aspect of my grief and given me hope of finding meaning in this great loss. Thank you David for helping to guide my broken and wandering heart toward life again.

Compelling yet somewhat lacking

I will start off by saying that I did not dislike this book. I thought that the stories and insight in it were compelling and interesting. I preordered this because I thought I would learn something about the things I've been going through after my loss. While that was true as with most books of the self reflection type this is not a guide for anything specific more so a way for you to perhaps think of your own situation in a new light, in that regard in succeeded.

The book feels personal and genuine and although I myself am not too big of a fan of that and felt it was perhaps too much at times it was not too bad. What kinda took me out of it is that I felt that the author/narrator wasn't exactly right, just the voice itself kinda didn't do it for me, but otherwise I don't really have any other complains.

Overall I think this is a good book to go through if you've encountered loss and perhaps want to find meaning, as the name implies.

very helpful book for folks who are grieving

David Kessler again does a remarkable job of calmly walking those of us who've lost someone how we can rebuild our lives and live authentically. His stories of how different people have struggled are like lights on the footpath of this new life without our loved one.
Thank you, David for everything.

With gratitude, confirmation and resolution

Thank you David Kessler for continuing the work of Viktor Frankl in words and stories that are simple to comprehend. I have been searching to discover who I am after the loss I’ve experienced and this timely book has furthered my conviction to figure it out and not give up. The pain never goes away but I can choose suffering. I resolve to keep trying, I don’t know the outcome yet, but I will continue to be curious and find meaning and purpose to my life. From the depths of my heart and sou,, pain and grief - thank you for writing this book.
