Grieving Is Loving
Compassionate Words for Bearing the Unbearable

by Joanne Cacciatore

A new book of poems, quotations, reflections, and stories from the author of one of the most beloved books on grief & loss.

If you love, you will grieve--and nothing is more mysteriously central to becoming fully human. This book is a companion to carry with you throughout your day, to touch in with and be supported by when bearing the unbearable pain of a loved one's death--whether weeks or years since their passing. Our culture often makes the bereaved feel alone, isolated, broken, and like they should just "get over it" - this book offers a loving antidote. Open to any page and you'll find something that will instantly help you feel not alone, while honouring the full weight of loss.

Grieving Is Loving is comprised of quotations from Bearing the Unbearable, and other sources as well, plus an enormous amount of new material from Dr. Jo. Especially well-suited for the grieving mind that may struggle with concentration; just 30 seconds on any page will empower, hearten, and validate any bereaved person--helping give strength and courage to bear life's most painful losses.


Writing with tenderness, simplicity, and care. Dr Cacciatore offers a profound guide to healing and wholeness in the midst of grief and loss. Each page is a balm for a wounded heart. Anyone who has suffered in this life will find helpful wisdom here"
Rick Hanson, author of Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength and Happiness

"This ineffably beautiful compendium of grief wisdom is much more than a book: it's a companion. To read it is to be held, sustained and enriched".
Gabor Mate, author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction

"A book of profound compassion and wisdom and strength".
From the foreword by Johann Hari

"A beautiful contemplation on grief that is wise and will serve so many"
Roshi Joan Halifax, author of Being with Dying
