Sample Book Insights:

#1 Grief is a gateway into the world of the living. It leads us back into a world that is vivid and radiant. It requires us to live with a level of openness and vulnerability to the joys and sorrows of the world.

#2 Grief is not just a period in our lives, but an ongoing conversation that accompanies us throughout life. We must learn to carry our grief and not collapse or turn away in denial.

#3 Grief is a difficult emotion that we must learn to approach with reverence. We must develop the skill of staying present in our adult selves when grief arises, as regressing into a child-like state when feelings of grief emerge is not helpful.

#4 The child-like state is what Jung called a complex. Complexes are fragmentary bundles of concentrated emotional energy formed when we were confronted with an experience too intense for us to successfully digest. They are a result of trauma, and they return again and again as a way of being reabsorbed back into consciousness.
