In Entering the Healing Ground, author and soul activist Francis Weller, offers a new vision of grief and sorrow. He reveals the hidden vitality in grief, uncovered when the heart welcomes the sorrows of our life and those of the world. When the deeper rhythms of grief are allowed to emerge, we become aware of the intimate connection we share with all things. We are ripened in times of loss, made more human by the rites of grief. Through story, poetry and insightful reflections.

When Dawn Morningstar heard the Dalai Lama’s prediction—“The world will be saved by the Western woman”—her heart was immediately enlisted to help make his words come true.
