Description de l'ouvrage

24 septembre 2013
When a relationship ends, the anguish and disappointment can be devastating. A broken heart is genuinely traumatic. Typical recommendations to keep busy, move on, repair your hidden flaws, and then forget about it may not be helpful. In these pages, Susan Piver reveals that heartbreak actually creates an opportunity for genuine emotional and spiritual transformation, enabling you to emerge on the other side stronger, softer, and capable of loving with renewed confidence.

In the years following her own experience, relationship writer Susan Piver searched the world’s wisdom traditions and discovered that heartbreak can be an uncompromising teacher of authenticity, power, and even joy. She shares that wisdom here, with instantaneously recognizable anecdotes, insights, on-the-spot practices, exercises, meditations, and down-to-earth advice that make The Wisdom of a Broken Heart a steadying prescription of solace and encouragement, wisdom and humor during the hardest time of your life. Like an infinitely patient, trusted friend, Piver tells you in a thousand different ways the most important thing to remember and the easiest to forget: “You’re going to be okay.”

3.0 étoiles sur 5 useful but limited in scope 21 janvier 2010
Par canali - Publié sur
poignantly written, has some helpful exercises, but is limited in scope towards heartbreak resolution...ultimately it's about honouring one's grief, accepting it, in the body and working with it to release it... but not much else in terms of a more proactive comprehensive package.

despite the author's good intentions this approach to heartache resolution only succeeds so far.. you'll continue to get caught up in prolonged heartache and carry your baggage (which we all have)into your next relationship unless you also question your belief systems/experiences of closure from the what of codependency, or lack of closure, or addiction, or abandonment, or abuse, or 'victim' mentality?...using mindfulness only goes so far to resolving these greater themes of baggage and hurt that can be mixed in with heartache...'feel the feelings and drop the story' to quote pema chodron, is fine to allow us to process the feelings, get out of the mind chatter and ultimately to help with the healing, to be sure, but there IS a story to be confronted and worked upon, too....sure piver suggests journalling (as most breakup recovery books do also) but there must be more.

where is the 'wisdom' of a broken heart, for example, if you haven't ''completed'' your previous relationships properly, thus mixing so much current grief with old grief, thereby lengthening your emotional heartache? (russell & friedman's 'Moving on..' book at bottom discusses this at great length with many practical & useful exercises)...their take, and I agree is: if you haven't healed and understood better your heart's baggage you'll only revisit these themes onto your next romantic relationship, most likely once more encountering disappointment.

i've used mindfulness at times when feeling overwhelmed emotionally to get out of my head chatter and allow my body to process my pain more efficiently...yet at other times I also took time out to question my thoughts' validity, too (in the katie byron venue) ie using mindfulness to stay in the mind but watch/observe where my thoughts lead...both have succeeded to varying levels of one time I was listening to a song that triggered me going down the 'sadness/missing her' i just mindfully followed my thoughts and to where they led...but then I started to question how true they actually were (an approach by cbt or mbct (mindfulness based cognitive therapy) I didn't move into my body...yet I was perfectly able to come back to being emotionally balanced and so much in life often the approach to healing is multivaried...mindfulness thus is but one tool...actually I find the approaches of mbct (mindfulness based cognitive therapy/mbct) even more encouraging for heartache resolution than just mindfulness alone (see 'the mindful way through depression')

to me the approach to heartbreak resolution is three pronged: 1/allowing and exploring the grieving process in an effective/strategic manner to explore and question the origins of one's heartache and arrive at more 'completion' to lesson the baggage (we all have) along with 2/cogntive exercises to question your emotions/thoughts' validity and background when they start to spin out of control (inner emotions don't always equate with outer reality afterall)... and also finally with 3//mindfulness work to move into the body and allow for healing and being gentle towards oneself ...these all should all go hand in hand towards heartbreak resolution at different times.

on this note, i admire Piver's poignantly written work which one can consider as another tool to combat and overcome heartache, but on its own it's incomplete (as are most heartbreak helper books)...if you do read buy it i'd also check out both Susan Elliot's ''Getting past your breakup''(the author also has a kick ass website 'getting past your past'... do a google search as there is tons of useful and practical info there, too') and John Russell/John Friedman's ''Moving on: dump your relationship baggage and make room for the love of your life''(founders of the
Grief Recovery Institute and authors of the 'Grief Recovery Handbook')...also Bruce Fisher's classic 'Rebuilding' is well written, too...lastly even Susie and Otto Collins' website and works on overcoming a broken heart offer a combined approach to using mindfulness and cognitive and psychodynamic work through grief more effectively.

So while I enoyed this book and its personal poignantly written style, it's not the only tool to use in one's arsenal towards overcoming heartbreak and moving forward more proactively.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wise, warm, real 24 décembre 2009
Par Suburban Housewife - Publié sur
I read this as soon as I could because I've been a fan of Susan Piver's work for years. I'm glad I did. The Wisdom of a Broken Heart doesn't just offer solace and guidance to those whose hearts have been broken because of a romantic relationship, but also to those of us whose hearts have just been broken by Life. As usual her writing is engaging, clear, empathic and real, not to mention, warm and funny. I'll be keeping an extra copy on hand to loan out. I want mine to stay in my house, where it belongs.

This is an excellent book for those whose hearts are newly broken or still suffering from old wounds. It is soundly written with loving, practical ways to recognize signs of a broken heart and how to gently but effectively begin to heal. Well worth reading!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent guide through heartbreak 29 décembre 2009
Par M. Huber - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I'm not usually at a loss for words when moved, I usually have something to say but I've been struggling over what to say about Susan Piver's new book. I am a long time fan and have been waiting anxiously for this book to come out. The Wisdom of a Broken Heart goes above and beyond just romantic heartbreak, but really any heart in need of healing will benefit from this book. Having struggled with several heartbreaks, romantic and otherwise, this book was a timely guide for how to be open to what my own heart can teach me, it's an excellent guide for how to keep the scarring to a minimum and still retain your dignity, openness and your very self.
I can't even begin to put into words what a helpful guide this book is, and will continue to be. I can't explain how it cracked some tiny part of me to allow the sun to shine in again, even if it's just for a moment, I know that there will be other moments as I continue to heal.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Kind, Funny and Actionable 13 janvier 2010
Par Ming - Publié sur
I was immediately hooked by the author's personal story of heartbreak. It is told in such a thoughtful and funny manner that I had the sense she is truly writing this book out of her own hard won experience. That tone of insight and humor characterizes the feel of the entire book particularly the exercises which make this more than just an enjoyable read, but a source book to return to whenever I am experiencing sadness.
