    Season of Heartbreak

    Healing for the Heart, Brain, and Soul


    "Simply masterful."
    -- Dr. Tim Clinton, president of the American Association of Christian Counselors


    After a devastating breakup, many people--Christians included--are left heartbroken, lonely, confused, even devoid of hope. The grief of losing a romantic partner is often similar to that experienced after the death of a loved one. Yet, too often, friends, family, and the church see these breakups as trivial events.


    As a therapist, Mark Karris sees the devastation in the wake of this loss every day. He knows that the pain isn't inconsequential. He also knows that insights and principles are not enough to help heal the shattered hearts of those who are grieving. Moving past platitudes and into action, Season of Heartbreak pulls from a variety of spiritual practices:

    • Contemplative prayer
    • Journaling
    • Weeping
    • Self-compassion
    • Being loved by others
    • Forgiveness
    • An original four-step transformational practice


    Readers can learn to progress gracefully through the journey of heartbreak, and will pick up the emotional equipment to confront and move through loss in other areas of their life to come.
