Description

Activist and author Joanna Macy speaks of the unrecognized, and unwelcome, pain in the hearts of most activists.

Leanne Pedante is a trainer and trauma + resiliency coach, whose work focuses on connecting people to their bodies and to their full potential. Because of this lack of clarity, some have criticized the book as something that could end up getting grieving people stuck between OK and not OK.

She calmly and lovingly explains what well-meaning people in our culture do with grief and she does it without blame or shame. While this relationship between lack of empathy and tolerating opposing views may be true sometimes, I also think that’s a huge and unmerited generalization. She helms a consulting practice in Los Angeles and serves as an organizational consultant for the healthcare and human resources industries. Today on It’s OK, we discuss the ways grief has upended her life, and the ways that both movement and community have kept her alive - willing, at least most days, to lean into the full experience of life. Why well-meaning advice, therapy, and spiritual wisdom so often end up making it harder for people in grief .

Megan Devine offers a loving, holistic, and honest vision of what it means to ‘companion each other inside what hurts.It helps the grief-stricken cope with well-meaning attempts to "fix" them, and points out that death isn't fixable. But her assumption is that sudden, accidental deaths of young people (like that of her boyfriend) are uniquely hard to process, and the book reads almost more like a memoir at times.
