  • Book Signing with Kimberly Brown

Join author and meditation teacher Kimberly Brown to celebrate the release of her book, Navigating Grief and Loss: 25 Buddhist Practices to Keep Your Heart Open to Yourself and Others. Copies will be available for purchase at the Rubin Museum shop ($19.95, Member price $17.95). Meet the author and have your copy signed, all while enjoying the ambiance of the Rubin’s free K2 Friday Night program!

About the Book:

A trusted meditation teacher shares effective and traditional tools of kindness and wisdom in this personal and useful guide to caring for yourself after loss.

Navigating Grief and Loss is a book for anyone who’s experienced the pain of mourning, who’s struggled to find a job, who is devastated by a bad breakup—yearning to rest, feel understood, and believe in themselves and the future. It’s a guidebook filled with relatable stories and practical meditations to help navigate the profound experience of death and loss, be it an elderly parent succumbing to a lingering illness, the shock following a tragic accident, a divorce after years of conflict, or euthanasia of a beloved pet.

Filled with traditional Buddhist wisdom into the nature of life, each short chapter honestly describes a personal experience dealing with death or grief—staying at a hospice facility at a mother’s bedside, feeling frustrated by the options for a terminally ill friend, or dealing with difficult family members in the midst of a crisis. Chapters are followed by compassionate and mindful practices—meditations, exercises, or contemplations that readers can use to discover insights and truths and bring comfort and friendship to their own struggles and sorrow

About the Author:
