When we encounter real tragedy in our lives that throws us into grieving, few of us find the way to deepen our mourning and let it radically reform us. The Soul in Grief
asks us to put aside all psychological explanations and concentrate on discovering the loving embrace offered by the soul of the world.
"Robert is introducing us to a new way of imagination that has direct relevance to our everyday situation, especially to its strong emotions and scarcity of meaning...it is a form of education of the deepest sort, the kind that happens when we are forced to find a way to live in the midst of grief."
-From the Foreword, by Thomas Moore
"The Soul in Grief shows how moments of grief can help us move beyond false constructs of the ego...it expands our idea of psychology to situate life and the soul within the greater fabric of the living universe."
-David Fideler, editor of Alexandria: A Journal of Cosmology, Philosophy, Myth and Culture
