What can help when you have lost a pet and are overwhelmed with grief?

 

 Welcome to the Ask Susan podcast. This is episode #22. 

I’m really excited to be able to offer this to you. Each week, I will answer a question about spirituality and meditation practice. Please click here to ask me your question.

Like many of you, Taryn in Austin, TX could not have loved her dog more. Then she died. Now, her grief is almost unbearable. When a pet dies, it can be one of the deepest losses imaginable. In this week’s podcast, I try my best to offer something useful in living with this kind of loss. There are no Buddhist “tricks” for making pain hurt less, but there are some ways of holding your mind to make room for it that provide tremendous healing. In this answer, I mention the work of Tulku Thondup Rinpoche and his great book, Peaceful Death, Joyful Rebirth.
