Her own workouts let her celebrate her physical and mental strength and she wants to show others how to access the pride and power within joyful movement.

This book is essential for those who are experiencing deep grief and the way we help and support others who have endured loss. This is hands-down the best book on grief I've found, and I've been looking for a good many years now.

From this dual-perspective she paints a well-rounded picture of the different realities of grief; the grief she felt as well as the grief she’s witnessed with clients. with essays to teach us the best skills, checklists, and suggestions for supporting and comforting others through the grieving process Many people who have suffered a loss feel judged, dismissed, and misunderstood by a culture that wants to "solve" grief. Together with her team, she facilitates a growing catalog of courses, events, and trainings to help grieving people, and those who wish to support them, learn the skills they need to carry pain that cannot be fixed. Psychotherapist Megan Devine believes that making the world a better place starts with acknowledging grief, rather than seeking to overcome it.

HUFFPOST Featured on NPR's RADIO TIMES and WISCONSIN PUBLIC RADIO When a painful loss or life-shattering event upends your world, here is the first thing to know: there is nothing wrong with grief. The book's central message is that grieving people should show themselves kindness and care for their body and mind as much as they can, relying on as many people as can be to do so. There was far too much emphasis on how your friends, family etc get it wrong, eg, saying the wrong things, avoidance, tactlessness etc.It’s OK That You’re Not OK is a permission slip to feel what you feel, do what you do, and say what you say, when life finds you in a place of profound loss and the world seems hell-bent on telling you the right way to get back to being the person you’ll never again be. The book acknowledges that grief takes you over and carries you along like floodwaters and that there is little you can do about it, but it helps you do what little you can and gradually build up on these efforts to find a measure of peace. Her celebrated animations and explainers have garnered over 75 million views and are used in training programs around the world.

This book is different from your normal self-help guides; it touches on the side of grief we don’t always want to face. The author of this book tries to share her expertise on grief in a new authentic way, a more relatable and accurate way. Fantastic narration by Megan Devine and a book to truly treasure because when someone like Megan truly provides a universal consideration of Grief so very poignant to listen to and one that I truly believe in then it stands out and it is a book I'll always cherish because it structures our lives when everything else has crumbled. Megan Devine’s book is powerful, honest, and necessary in this culture that doesn’t understand or know how to tend to grief.

Everyone’s at least a little bit Not OK, something grief expert and psychotherapist Megan Devine knows from the inside out. I certainly did not experience them as ‘true gifts of loss’ as the book puts it - a point that caused the lower part of my jaw to embed itself into my carpet when I read it.

a) The beauty of the experience of grief: I agree that we need to redefine grief from a problem to solve (focusing on erasing pain, maintaining control) to an experience to tend (focusing on feeling pain, on the journey from not OK to OK).

It is a very human book, full of grace, permission to feel, and written in a way that it does not come off as one of those 'self-help' books.
