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.”

Good thing I stumbled on this book. Very serendipitous. I had been broken-hearted many times before so thought I knew how to handle such situations by now. Listening to this book, though, allowed me to gain more insights that put my ideas into perspective. As a Zen student, I really like the emphasis on meditation and how it serves to inspire one to just sit down, focus on the breath and to see everything with clarity and loving-kindness. I love it!
"Chicken soup for the broken hearted"
This book wipes the tears from your eyes.
Soothing…will help get you through the initial pain of a breakup. She gets it.
"Best book on the subject!"
I listened to other audio books on the subject title - this is the best.
This book came when I really needed it. gentle, loving insights. No meanness or musts. Perfect for where I am.
This book gave me a sense of foundation. She speaks with such grace and clarity that I felt less alone in my own personal experience of heart break. If people try these ideas on..I truly believe the will find peace sooner than later
Thank you for such a spectacular piece of work.
"Thank goodness for this book"
Im so thankful i found this book. I dnt know if it would have been as truely helpful the first time i experienced heart break. only because i was so deep in despair to even recognise the truths she was laying in front of me. But been this my most resent encounter with relationship misfortune i can take a step back and see it with diferent eyes. I feel stronger and most important, the book has given me a goal...self nurture. its honest and super relatable. looking foward to checking out some of her other work.
"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.
