"What if the suffering that we call depression contains experiences and lessons without which we cannot be fully alive?"

Giving Up Without Giving Up 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.

Drawing on his experience of meditation within both the Buddhist and Christian contemplative traditions, as well his own times of personal loss and bewilderment, Jim Green offers us a moving account of just how this wisdom practice can accompany each of us as we make "the gentle pilgrimage of recovery." He offers a thorough and practical approach to our times of personal desolation, centered on the practice of meditation, showing how we can learn to treat ourselves and each other with care and compassion.
