Is death still the greatest taboo? It’s the part of life we can absolutely count on yet we still find it hard to talk about and that makes the grieving process all that more difficult.

Yoga and Grief: A Compassionate Journey Toward Healing a book by Gloria Drayer and Kathleen Doherty
In this book the bereaved will find tools to help in the grieving process. It employs
personal example and a gentle approach to yoga, meditation and breathing
techniques. The content does not rely on yoga-specific language and therefore has a
more universal appeal. There is an emphasis on the body-mind connection and the
techniques are available to anyone regardless of previous experience. The reader
can pick and choose which chapters/techniques work for them. There is an
emphasis on positive self-care regardless of where the reader may be in the
continuum of grief.
