Synopses & Reviews
The only book written for the dying person, this life-enhancing guide helps one resolve the physical, emotional, and spiritual concerns unique to this "end time"
Dying is something we all must do. The Art of Dying shows us how to do it well. Practical and encouraging, it leads the reader through the conflicts we all seek to resolve in the end. Author Patricia Weenolsen, Ph.D., has helped thousands of men and women struggle with these universal yet taboo issues. In The Art of Dying she shares their expertise — and hers — on what to expect and how to prepare, plan, maintain control, rehearse, and gradually transform ourselves from a physical existence to a spiritual one. With the help of case histories, exercises, and Weenolsen's own warm yet straightforward advice, we learn to integrate the many gifts that death and dying bestow upon us, and that enrich our remaining time on earth.
