Grief is overwhelming, life-changing, shattering. You can find healing in grief. Grief can, in fact, "be one our greatest teachers." Repressing and stuffing feelings and pretending that all is well does not do it. And the simple passage of time does not do it for you. Real healing lies within YOU. Tom Zuba's book Permission to Mourn: A New Way to Do Grief is an incredible tool in learning how to access healing within yourself. In fact, Permission to Mourn is the only book that truly helped us after Gwendolyn's death.
Tom knows grief firsthand. He is living life with the death of his daughter, Erin, his wife, Trici, and his son, Rory -- all of whom died from three different illnesses within just a few years of each other. Tom was a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, facilitates workshops, and has spoken all over the country teaching the new way to do grief.
"In the beginning, Tom did grief the old way. Repressing, denying, pretending, numbing and stuffing every feeling and every emotion that arose. He created pain on top of pain until he began searching for a new way. A new way to do grief. Once he gave himself permission to mourn, healing began."
We are offering signed copies of Permission to Mourn here in theGSF shop because we believe in Tom's message, his hope, his practical advice, his life lessons and we, too, believe healing lies within YOU.
