    Winner of the 2023 Trillium Book Award
    		 
    A poignant meditation on mortality from a beloved Canadian poet
    		 
    A writer friend once pointed out that whenever Stuart Ross got close to something heavy and “real” in a poem, a hamburger would inevitably appear for comic relief. In this hybrid essay/memoir/poetic meditation, Ross shoves aside the heaping plate of burgers to wrestle with what it means to grieve the people one loves and what it means to go on living in the face of an enormous accumulation of loss. Written during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, shortly after the sudden death of his brother left him the last living member of his family and as a catastrophic diagnosis meant anticipating the death of his closest friend, this meditation on mortality — a kind of literary shiva — is Ross’s most personal book to date. More than a catalogue of losses, The Book of Grief and Hamburgers is a moving act of resistance against self-annihilation and a desperate attempt to embrace all that was good in his relationships with those most dear to him.

    Since no one is totally perfect, it is certain that we all have experienced failures of one sort or another. True, consciously we may put them out of our mind and move on. However, subconsciously speaking, people who experience strong, negative emotions may conclude that they are a failure. Then they may automatically create (outside their awareness), low self-esteem subconscious programs. The kinds of reactive negative thoughts responding to past failures might be: "I am not good enough; I am not smart enough; I am not talented enough; I am not successful; I cannot succeed; I am a failure; it hurts too much to fail, so I won't risk failure; I won't try, so I will be safe". Actually, there are too many possibilities to cover adequately here. Nonetheless, negative thoughts about your past failures most likely have sabotaged your success. This audio targets those "Faulty Subconscious Programs" to delete what is blocking your success. Then, as you listen, you are proactively downloading into your computer-like subconscious mind, positive Reprogramming Hypnosis suggestions that reinforce your new, natural way of being totally at ease, feeling very positive as you give your Top Performance every time.
