Edy Nathan Media and Press Information

“In her book, Edy Nathan embraces grief in all its forms with clarity, insight and grace. She teaches readers to understand how grief is a tool for personal evolution and integration—and something everyone can master.” – Deepak Chopra

“I appreciate books that are like companions. You want them nearby and available. They have warmth and usefulness but are not shallow. They are friends rather than lifeless objects or heady abstractions. This book can be a companion like that during inevitable moments of grief.” —Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and Ageless Soul

In a culture that does its best to run away from grief whenever possible— even though grief is an inevitable part of life and loss—Edy Nathan provides a practical, sensitive guide to surmounting the pain and regaining your soul.

An experienced psychotherapist and grief expert, Nathan is author of the newly published It’s Grief: The Dance of Self-Discovery Through Trauma and Loss (As I Am Press, July 2018). The book unravels the complex world of grief and helps to transform the dark mystery into one of life’s most important teachers.

While other therapists emphasize universal quick fixes to “get over it,” Nathan says it doesn’t work that way. Like a fingerprint, everyone’s experience of trauma, abuse, or the loss of a loved one is unique, and in truth, you never really get over the resulting grief but learn to integrate it into your life.

To that end, Nathan offers a comprehensive toolbox to aid the process—and you can take what you need. She speaks candidly from her own personal experiences as one who has danced with grief in many forms from a young age. Her ideas are not theoretical!

Grief, trauma and loss can strike in a moment, today, or from a long past memory retrieved—and disrupt the norms in every part of your life. Edy Nathan’s practical insights can help you get your life back—even though the world you live in has forever changed.
