David Kessler
Finding Meaning

Many are familiar with the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Now, according to David Kessler, there is a sixth stage. David is an expert on healing and loss, and author of several books including On Grief and Grieving, which he co-authored with Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. In his new book, Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief, he journeys beyond the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage, meaning. David argues that it’s finding meaning that can transform grief into a more peaceful and hopeful experience. David’s first book, The Needs of the Dying is a #1 best-selling hospice book that received praise from Mother Teresa. David’s work has been featured on CNN, NBC, Fox, PBS, and Dr Oz. He is a contributing writer for Oprah.com, Dr. Oz’s Sharecare.com, and Anderson Cooper 360.
