cope with prolonged grief themselves and for the helping
professionals who are advising and supporting them."
--Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Lovingkindness
"Sameet Kumar has been working for many years as a psychologist and counselor in the field of dealing with this grief. In his wonderful new book Mindfulness and Prolonged Grief, he shares many of the approaches to inner healing that he has developed in his practice. In particular, he demonstrates how the ancient Buddhist methods of mindfulness meditation can be used to cure both body and mind when the overwhelming darkness of grief, depression, and hopelessness sets in. His book is both practical and immediate in its presentation, offering medical practitioners and patients alike a clear guide to a traditional healing technology that has worked for centuries, and is perhaps even more relevant today than ever before."
