Grief touches us all, there is no escaping it. This book helped me create a context for my grief that is supporting my experiencing it fully and completely - the pain, sorrow, anguish, joy, gratitude and deep love that is grief. We must go through the grief to gain the full measure of the gift that it is.

Review by Chris Phillips
Tessmann has written a how-to manual for changing perspective. Although she uses grief as the focus, she is really presenting a life changing process for living in the moment. Grief is an easy emotion to work with because most persons in society do not handle grief well even if they don't just totally ignore it.
Tessmann lived through several grieving processes but also through several other problems that have taught her what she expresses here. She relates her losses but particularly the loss of her father which prompted the writing of the book. Mostly this is how she dealt with grief and what obstacles she had to face.
Through guided meditation but mainly with simple and easy-to-do steps Tessmann shows how to apply lessons she learned in her relationship with grief to the reader's own grief and many other emotions as well.
Acknowledgments, a Preface and an Introduction, begin the process gently but convincingly for the reader to move from an antagonistic and negative relationship with grief into a productive and actually positive relationship with grief and many other "negative" emotions. Each title to the chapters moves the reader into another step in the process of living in the moment and dealing with grief as it comes to the reader.
Tessmann writes with a clear and logical mind. She illustrates enough from her own process of real life incidents to give valid and direct methods of turning negative reactions to grief into positive, growing reactions. Then as she completes her lessons for taking life one moment at a time, she provides an appendix that is in the form of a study guide with a complete bibliography following. Finally she has established a website ([...]) for forums and further discussion.
The editing and publishing of the book are superb with a good sized font used to allow reading without eye strain or other difficulties. The cover is attractive and the book the right size for library book shelves.
This book should be read by anyone and everyone. It should be a constant desktop accessory for ministers, counselors and any who want to help others with their grief and even with other life issues.

In "Sacred Grief" Leslee Tessmann relates her spiritual journey into self discovery. She tells of moving from unresolved grief into an awareness and acceptance of the comfort and healing that came when she made a conscious commitment to bringing a sacred context into all of her life.

Her story includes incidents that led to emotional trials and stress that resulted in anger, guilt, sadness, loneliness, anxiety, sadness, and pain.
She experienced disappointment, self doubt, and uncertainty that left her drained physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

She recounts the process of her experience in exploring and exchanging a new dimension of comfort and healing as she worked through the process of loss, death, grief, and bereavement.

Leslee replaced the conventional approach to this anguish by accepting grief as sacred. She explains it this way: "Relating to grief as sacred is like watching a fabulous epic drama of my life unfold and I'm the star. I become curious and interested in each scene and want to stay with it until the very end. I find myself entertained, energized, and surprisingly content."

Leslee's father celebrated the adventure and mystery of death as he moved into the unknown during his final days. Leslee describes the pain of losing her father as "poignant moments of tenderness." Authenticity, compassion, generosity, and a global view have an impact in this spiritual journey of experiencing the rewards of "sacred grief."

I was intrigued with Leslee's concepts of self induced suffering, of the danger of losing the excitement and exploration of life as a child with the acquired judgment and assessment of the adult. She described how self pity, apathy and depression lead to exhaustion.

Along with a reminder that every moment is sacred Leslee reiterates the importance of expressing feelings, and of resolving issues from past relationships. Sacred relationships are based on mutual respect and the freedom to be fully self-expressed.

An important study guide is provided for use in individual study or with a support group. A comprehensive bibliography is also included.

Leslee leads the reader from chaos to peace as her story unfolds. Her
writing is gripping, grounded in reality, often profound, always insightful, dynamic, and sensitive.
