Add redundancies, foreclosures, shrunken pensions, and falling house prices to the inevitable crises of every life and you have today's landscape, one in which even those who thought they had solid coping skills feel their centre cannot hold as things fall apart. In her first book in many years, Daphne Rose Kingma speaks to thirsty-for-sustenance readers with her trademark depth and compassion. Like the perfect combination of empathic friend, sage counsellor, savvy problem solver, and even gallows humorist, she looks straight into the predicaments so many face and offers 10 deceptively simple yet profoundly effective strategies for addressing despair on practical, emotional, and spiritual levels. Kingma connects as few other writers can, taking the reader by the hand to feel, deal, and heal together. While the difficult, even devastating event is unchanged, the sufferer is, having recovered their sense of efficacy, equilibrium, spirit, and strength.
Daphne Rose Kingma s bestsellers include Coming Apart, The Men We Never Knew, and The Future of Love. She and her work have appeared in most major media outlets, and she presents seminars and workshops around the world. She lives in Santa Barbara, California."
