A guidebook for discovering how heartbreak can become the doorway to profound meaning and joy from the bestselling co-creator of the Don't Sweat the Small Stuff Series
In 2006, after building the bestselling franchise Don't Sweat the Small Stuff with her husband Richard, Kristine Carlson faced a shattering loss--the sudden death of her beloved spouse. Woven together with the remarkable stories of others' loss and recovery, her deeply moving story reveals a clear process of healing that is common to everyone and goes far beyond ordinary prescriptions for getting through hard times. In her new book, From Heartbreak to Wholeness, Kristine offers a life-altering map for navigating the heroic journey from loss to joy--one that ultimately awakens readers to a deep love affair with life.
Every day, people suffer heartbreaks of some kind--loss of a loved one, divorce, illness, loss of a job or home--and seek to understand why these losses and traumas have befallen them and how they'll make it through in one piece. For readers who have endured loss of any kind, Kristine takes them by the hand, showing them how to traverse their own jagged edge of growth and emerge as the hero whole, happy, and empowered.
Each chapter of From Heartbreak to Wholeness includes powerful exercises in self-inquiry and reflection, along with step-by-step guidance for writing one's own heroic story of healing. Journey with Kristine Carlson and learn how you can walk the path from heartbreak to wholeness.
