Sacred Grief: Exploring A New Dimension to Grief by Leslee Tessmann

Sacred Grief offers an intriguing exploration of the far-reaching ripple effect of our present-day opinions about surviving grief's emotional roller-coaster and the unnecessary suffering our judgments unconsciously promote. You’ll find comfort in discovering that there's another dimension to this universal experience—a dimension that fosters trust, kindness and compassion, peacefully heals, and steadfastly moves you towards your soul's deepest desires and dreams.

  • About the Author

    Leslee’s move from Seattle to Houston in 2003 and her father’s death in 2004 were the catalyst for surrendering to her unfolding grief with curiosity and compassion, and the telling of Sacred Grief. It is her first and perhaps most memorable achievement at writing and publishing a book about that which she is so passionate. To accomplish this out of a desire to help shift the Western world’s relationship to grief and contribute to the natural unfolding of the planet is to have one of her most closely-held dreams come true.

    Leslee recently moved back to the Seattle area to be near her daughter, son-in-law, and three grandchildren. She is currently editing other authors' book projects. facilitating workshops, and lecturing about Sacred Grief's ideas and concepts. Leslee is also developing a book that offers an insightful discussion about how the human brain functions and responds to our experiences, emotional reactions and thoughts, and the challenges to move forward in life in the face of anxiety, panic, and other emotional discomfort.
