—From I’m Not a Mourning Person
The divorce. The accident. The miscarriage. When the doctor said it’s cancer. The day you lost your job. Or your mom. Or the love of your life.
These moments are what I call ruptures.
Losses or unexpected life changes that are so big you don’t think you’ll survive them and if you do, you’ll never be the same.
But even the worst ruptures can reveal the path to our next chapter of fully alive living.
Whatever it was for you. The moment your world stopped—that’s what we’re here to talk about.
Kris Carr is a multiple New York Times best-selling author, wellness activist and cancer thriver. She’s been called a “force of nature” by O Magazine and was named a “new role model” by the New York Times. Kris is also a member of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100, recognizing the most influential thought-leaders today.
Her new memoir, I’m Not a Mourning Person, is her most poignant exploration of the human condition yet. In it, Kris tackles the universal experience of loss with her signature combo of searing vulnerability and irreverent humor.
While navigating the loss of her father, a faltering business, and her 20-year milestone of living with Stage IV cancer—Kris realized that our grief-phobic culture has left most of us unprepared to handle loss. Instead, we’re taught how to avoid pain.
But, as Kris asserts, “We can’t amputate any of our emotions and expect to be whole.”
I’m Not a Mourning Person is a field guide through the rougher terrain of human emotions, filled with powerful exercises, research-driven strategies, and moving stories about what to expect when you’re not expecting your world to fall apart.
It’s a light for anyone whose world feels dark—and a roadmap back toward your truest self.

May this book be a source of comfort for anyone suffering from a loss—whether it be the dissolving of a relationship or marriage, the end of a job or career, or any number of other significant unexpected transitions. But especially for those wrestling with that pain that comes from an illness or the death of a loved one.
Look, I hate that we have to do this. I’d much rather watch our favorite Netflix series or make paninis or go shopping for new throw pillows, but here we are.
So, I invite you to be my co-pilot on this healing trip as we tour some of the most difficult and treasured parts of life, of grieving and loving, stumbling and flying, living and dying. I’ll bring the snacks, flash lights and bandages. You bring the sensible shoes.
Ready? Let’s go.
All my love,
