Summary

Summary

Here's a sensitively written book that offers inspiration and guidance to the dying and the bereaved. The author, an experienced bereavement counselor, draws on the many different teachings and practices of both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions as he explores the profound questions that we must all eventually face: What is death? Is there life after death? Is it possible to overcome the fear of death? What steps should we take when we must cope with the death of a loved one? What can we do to help the dying or the bereaved? How can every man and woman prepare for death? The author tells moving personal anecdotes, offers philosophical insight, and suggests guided meditations to help each reader understand the notions about death that are universally shared. He provides the insight that the realization of death is a powerful teacher that challenges us to discover who we really are and show us what truly matters in life.
