Summary

When a relationship ends, the anguish and disappointment can be devastating. A broken heart is genuinely traumatic. Typical recommendations to keep busy, move on, repair your hidden flaws, and then forget about it may not be helpful. In this reading of her book, Susan Piver reveals that heartbreak actually creates an opportunity for genuine emotional and spiritual transformation, enabling you to emerge on the other side stronger, softer, and capable of loving with renewed confidence.
In the years following her own experience, relationship writer Susan Piver searched the world’s wisdom traditions and discovered that heartbreak can be an uncompromising teacher of authenticity, power, and even joy. She shares that wisdom here, with instantaneously recognizable anecdotes, insights, on-the-spot practices, exercises, meditations, and down-to-earth advice that make The Wisdom of a Broken Heart a steadying prescription of solace and encouragement, wisdom and humor during the hardest time of your life. Like an infinitely patient, trusted friend, Piver tells you in a thousand different ways the most important thing to remember and the easiest to forget: “You’re going to be okay.”
Note to Listeners: There are references within this audio edition to a PDF containing exercises that are found in the print edition of the work. To obtain this PDF, please send an email to the publisher at piverhandouts@betterlisten.com.

A book full of sympathy for a broken heart

My heart was broken into million pieces and thought no one in the world can understand me. I was so frustrated and hopeless. I decided to try some book that might help. As soon as the audible started I shocked. I thought it is me talking. I couldn't believe there are other people with the exact feeling. I first impressed by the sympathy of the author. It was very important to me at that stage to find someone can only understand my pain. If you are heart broken you will hear out yourself through this book. The solutions recommended at this book are not something you already not know but it helps you to think about that at the time you couldn't think clearly and even don t know yourself anymore. It is a very difficult journey and you are the only one can help you. So read this book just to find out where you are stand in your life then you can find your way.

Nothing Better for Healing

One of the most helpful reads of my entire life. So heartful, grounded, practical and unaffected. There's nothing preachy or didactic about this book - just a caring sharing of the shape and qualities of the journey of heartbreak. She's a wise one.
