Summary

Describes an embodied process of psychospiritual transformation that restores a sense of the sacred in the natural world.

Nearly twenty years ago, while trying to meditate early one morning at his home in San Jose, California, Jay Dufrechou noticed that if he quieted the chatter in his head, he heard rain falling on the roof in a way that felt intimate and sacred. This brought weeping, along with grief. Following the trajectory of this and similar experiences, the author moved with his young family to the mountains of Montana and envisioned the possibility of experiencing ourselves—through our bodies and emotions—as part of the natural world. Moving through Grief, Reconnecting with Nature addresses the hearts and heads of readers through tracing a trajectory of psychospiritual transformation from realizing loss of connection with nature, to grieving the loss, to longing for ecological wholeness, to internalizing the natural world as part of oneself. Many of the experiences described in the book might be considered spiritual or mystical and are placed within the context of transpersonal psychology and modern consciousness research, particularly the work of Stanislav Grof.

Jay Dufrechou, JD, PhD, worked for many years as an attorney before he followed the call of spiritual awakening into the experiential doctoral program at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (ITP), now Sofia University, where he currently teaches transpersonal research ethics and dissertation research. In transition from the mountains of Montana to New York City, Dufrechou works primarily as a mediator and consultant in conflict resolution. He is active in the international Holotropic Breathwork community emerging from the work of Stanislav and Christina Grof. Dufrechou’s law degree comes from the University of California at Berkeley; his undergraduate studies were at Stanford University, where he majored in English with emphasis in creative writing.
