Abridged Edition

Everyone faces illness. Whether it's a personal health crisis or the sickness a loved one is experiencing, none of us is immune to illness or death. While we can try to ignore the reality, Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen suggests we do the exact opposite: face it. Dr. Bolen shares how illness gives us purpose, guiding us towards finding the truth. By practicing self-compassion, empathy, listening, and learning, we set ourselves on a path to finding hope. In Close to the Bone, Dr. Bolen weaves myth, experience, and story to show that facing one's mortality can be a life-transforming and even a life-saving process.
