Disastrous events continue to plague our world, and finding peace in times of trauma can be an overwhelming challenge. Personal shock after a death or tragedy can devastate a family for generations to come. 
This book discusses:
  •  how tragedy physically changes the brain and the body
  • explains the healing techniques of mindfulness
  • outlines skills for recovery from trauma. 

Personal accounts of tragedy in the lives of people include:
  •  a 911 survivor
  • a mother whose son was mangled in a roadside bomb in Afghanistan
  • parents who had two children die of similar brain tumors
  • a young adult whose father committed suicide
  • a rape victim.

This is a great read to help each of us face the personal tragedies that come to all of us. Each chapter has a to-do list at the end to help set goals and outline techniques to aid us in finding peace in our lives--even with personal and world disasters that surround us daily.
