More Beautiful Than Before – How Suffering Transforms Us

In this episode of Boomer TV: Embrace Life, Embrace Age, Empower Dreams, Andy Asher, editor of BloomerBoomer talks to Rabbi Steve Leder, the author of MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN BEFORE.

Every one of us sooner or later walks through hell. The hell of being hurt, the hell of hurting another. The hell of losing our own health, the hell of losing someone we deeply love. The hell of knowing that this year, like any year, may be our last. But we need not come out empty- handed. In the spirit of such classics as When Bad Things Happen to Good People, A Grief Observed, and When Things Fall Apart, Rabbi Steve Leder’s new book MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN BEFORE (Hay House; November 7, 2017) examines the many ways we can transform physical, psychological, or emotional pain into a more authentic, meaningful life.

Now, in this elegantly concise, beautifully written, and deeply inspiring book, Rabbi Leder guides us through pain’s stages of surviving, healing, and growing to help us all find meaning in our suffering. Drawing on his experience as a spiritual leader, the wisdom of ancient traditions, modern science, and stories from his own life and others’, he shows us that when we must endure, we can and that there is a path for each of us that leads from pain to wisdom. “Pain cracks us open,” he writes. “It breaks us. But in the breaking, there is a new kind of wholeness.” This powerful book will inspire in us all a life worthy of our suffering; a life gentler, wiser, and more beautiful than before.
