Motherhood Unstressed

Apr 20, 2020

How do you survive losing something that is a critical part of your identity? Whether it's a person, a job, or some other part of who you are, managing the grief that follows is one of the hardest things we can face. My guest this week is author and anthropologist Long Litt Woon. Her incredibly moving book, "The Way Through the Woods", is a cathartic missive about two journeys--one into the kingdom of fungi, and another into the landscape of grief. Often when we're faced with loss, we are desperate for relief, in Woon's case her salvation was found step by gentle step in the woods. 

Books about bereavement can be unbearably painful, like bereavement itself. Grieving is so personal, so all-consuming, so frightening; it can force you close to the edge of insanity. Listen to learn how Woon found her way out, and the powerful lessons she learned along the way.
