Abstract:
"'What if the suffering that we call depression contains experiences and lessons without which we cannot be fully alive?' This is one of the many startling questions that Giving Up Without Giving Up invites us to ask ourselves. Depression seems to be a contemporary epidemic, a condition understandably feared and avoided by all. Yet this book explores the possibility that we have much to learn from the desert times in our lives, when it feels as though we are losing everything, most of all any sense of who we are. Based on the insight that 'Life is the Treatment', the author offers a thorough and practical approach to our times of personal desolation, showing how we can learn to treat ourselves and each other with care and compassion.
