With It's OK That You're Not OK, Megan reveals a path for navigating grief and loss not by trying to escape it, but by learning to live inside of it with more grace and strength. Through stories, research, life tips, and mindfulness-based practices, she offers a unique guide through an experience we all must face. Here she debunks the culturally prescribed goal of returning to a normal, "happy" life, replacing it with the skills and tools to help us experience and witness the pain of loss in ourselves and others--so we may meet our grief knowing it to be a natural step in the greater journey of love.

Julie Danskin from the Golden Hare bookshop in Edinburgh says: "It sounds a bit self-helpy but actually its a book about our culture and how we don't talk about grief and were just supposed to return to a happy place as soon as we can. But actually it's a really wonderful book...and might be quite helpful as well.
