Summary

Summary

A gentle, straightforward meditation on mortality, death and the afterlife, this is the first book of its kind to explore the pagan attitude to life, of which death is simply another aspect. Addressing both spiritual and physical concerns, O'Gaea provides thoughtful advice on a variety of topics from theology and ritual to spells and reflections on reincarnation, along with practical advice on the Hospital ritual and how to handle funeral arrangements. Blending common sense, Wiccan theology, experience and compassion here is a unique exploration of society's last great taboo.
