Mysterious Moments: Thoughts That Transform Grief is a collection of 10 stories based on real life experiences of loss. The stories are diverse and involve issues such as the insatiable need for affirmation by our parents, generational family dysfunction, death of an African American male by authorities, compassion burnout, and the effects of cultural attitudes on grieving. Although each story is unique, a common theme ties the narratives together. All of the grievers, despite their distress and suffering, experience moments in which they have transformative thoughts that allow them to reframe their grief. Each person finds meaning through this unconscious process, providing both healing and newfound hope.
