The Wild Edge of Sorrow: Grief as a Sacred Initiation | Psychology Today
Francis Weller is a California-based psychotherapist and writer whose work focuses on the sacred power of loss, darkness, and self-renewal. He is the author of numerous books, including The Wild Edge of Sorrow: Rituals of Renewal and the Sacred Work of Grief, and the founder and director of WisdomBridge, an organization that offers educational programs that seek to integrate the wisdom from indigenous cultures with the insights and knowledge gathered from Western poetic, psychological, and spiritual traditions.
Weller received a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin Green Bay and two Master’s degrees from John F. Kennedy University in Clinical Psychology and Transpersonal Psychology and is currently completing his fourth book, The Alchemy of Initiation: Soul Work and the Art of Ripening. In this inspiring conversation, we talked about the healing power of grief, the end of the heroic quest, and how to ensoul our lives in an age of rising fear and cynicism.
