This week on the #8 ranked stress podcast we're talking about how to cope with the loss of a pet. Mindfulness and pet grief expert Sarah Chauncey shares insights about how the special connections we have with our pets creates a unique kind of grief. Her thoughtful and candid approach to being "fiercly present" through the end of a pet's life and the grief that follows the loss will help you feel understood and supported as you navigate your own pet loss or support a loved one who is grieving the loss of a furry friend.
Sarah Chauncey has written and edited for nearly every medium over the past three decades, from print to television to digital. Her writing has been featured on EckhartTolle.com, Modern Loss, as well as in Lion's Roar and Canadian Living. She lives on Vancouver Island in British Columbia (with her current cat, Ariel), where she divides her time between writing, editing nonfiction, and walking in nature. Sarah writes, among other things, about navigating the grief that comes through losing a pet. By directing addressing the realities of pet relationships (they usually live only a portion of the human life span) Sarah helps us connect with the realities of grief and the opportunities we have to make the most of our time with our pets. She’s had a significant mindfulness practice since 2010 and she’s been writing about techniques for developing mindfulness and self-awareness since 2014; Her book, P.S. I Love You More Than Tuna takes that experience and shines it through a paw-shaped lens. You can find out more about Sarah on her website, her blog Living the Mess, her Instagram, her FB Group Tuna Tributes, or her book website morethantuna.com.
