DAVID KESSLER

David Kessler is one of the world’s foremost experts on healing and loss. His experience with thousands of people on the edge of life and death has taught him the secrets to living a happy and fulfilled life. An accomplished speaker and author, David’s forthcoming book, Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief, will be released in November and has already been named one of the top 10 books for the fall by Publishers Weekly. His previous books have been praised by Saint (Mother) Teresa and Elisabeth Kübler Ross. David has written five bestselling books and the popular Healing Grief Card Deck: 55 Practices to Find Peace. His first book, The Needs of the Dying, is a #1 best-selling end-of-life book. He co-authored two bestsellers with the legendary Elisabeth Kübler-Ross: On Grief and Grieving and Life Lessons. He also co-authored You Can Heal Your Heart: Finding Peace After Breakup, Divorce or Death, with Louise Hay. David has worked with Elizabeth Taylor, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Carrie Fisher after their loved ones died, as well as late actors Anthony Perkins and Michael Landon at the end of their lives. He serves a Specialist Reserve Officer with the Los Angeles Police Department and as a volunteer for the American Red Cross, responding to tragic events including aviation disasters and 9/11. In addition, he has met with parents of Sandy Hook Elementary and survivors of the Las Vegas shooting in 2017.

Despite having spent most of his life teaching physicians, nurses, counselors, police officers and first responders about the end of life, trauma and grief, nothing could prepare him for the sudden death of his 21-year-old son in 2016. David’s work continues in honor of him.
