Description

In this groundbreaking and “poignant” (Los Angeles Times) book, David Kessler — praised for his work by Maria Shriver, Marianne Williamson, and Mother Teresa — 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 gained through decades of work with the grieving, Kessler introduces a critical sixth stage: meaning.

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 stage of grief - meaning. In Finding Meaning, Kessler shares the insights, collective wisdom, and powerful tools that will help those experiencing loss.

“Beautiful, tender, and wise” (Katy Butler, author of The Art of Dying Well), Finding Meaning is “an excellent addition to grief literature that helps pave the way for steps toward healing” (School Library Journal).

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.

paying it forward

This is my social media post, the moment I finished listening to this book. I work in medical practice management for a prominent hospital. "At the height of the NY pandemic in April, our hospital had daily conference calls to touch base, disseminate information and support. One of the doctors, and I wish I could remember which one, mentioned he was reading this book, and that it was helping him as well helping him help others. I remember being struck that he was in a position of high hospital leadership, in the pit of the Covid trenches, and looking to be better, both personally and professionally. I ordered it on the spot. I just finished reading it. The past 2 years have been clouded by much personal loss, death being just one of them. This book on finding meaning- the 6th step of grief - helped put words to the previously undefinable. I found some bits of insight and wisdom to deploy in my own life. Sharing (as did that MD) in the hope to pay it forward. You never know where the life rafts come from... ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤"

Essential Book for a Grief Journey

Our beautiful son died by suicide almost five years ago. David’s book is the first one I’ve read that finally helped me to look not only at my grief but also to look beyond it. I have a long way to go and I may never truly be able to find the meaning of my loss, but David’s words and the raw stories of his own loss provided a light. Thank you David😘

Amazing book

I learned so much from this book. I love that David himself narrated it. His voice is so soothing and genuine that I was able to really grasp the meaning of his words.

Leader in Grief

David Kessler has been by my side in grief. I have found it very helpful to listen to his voice and his wisdom while I grieve the death of my son. Soothing is a word that comes to mind. Highly recommend.

A very present help in deep grief....

I recently lost my 27 year old son, Ryan. David's words are comforting while guiding me to accept and work with the pain that I am in ( and will be in for quite some time to come. ) He did not minimize my loss by offering a quick fix. In telling his own story of the loss of his beautiful son David three years ago, he offers hope and a challenge; that we have choice and can learn to keep on living, handle the pain and even find some meaning. A hopeful glimpse of the future does make it possible to bear the unbearable.....thank you David.❤️

3 yr old just drowned 3 months ago

This book has been my companion during this time and a survival guide. I’m also an NP and believe this will help me with patients grieving as well.

“We often believe grief will grow smaller in time. It doesn’t we must grow bigger. We must be the architects of our lives after loss.” David Kessler
