Being with Dying: Cultivating Compassion and Fearlessness in the Presence of Death Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this long-awaited book of inspiring and practical teachings, Buddhist teacher Joan Halifax offeres the fruits of her many years of work with dying people. Inspired by traditional Buddhist teachings, her work is a source of wisdom for all those who are charged with a dying person's care, facing their own death, or wishing to explore and contemplate the transformative power of the dying process.

Halifax offers lessons from dying people and caregivers, as well as guided meditations to help readers contemplate death without fear, develop a commitment to helping others, and transform suffering and resistance into courage. She says, Why wait until we are actualy dying to explore what it may mean to die with awareness?

A world-renowned pioneer in care of the dying, Joan Halifax founded the Project on Being with Dying, which helps dying people to face death with courage and trains professional and family caregivers in compassionate and ethical end-of-life care.

Synopsis:

There’s no more compelling mystery than “life after life.” Jon Mundy, the respected teacher of A Course in Miracles, now investigates that unknown world, using insights from the Course on mortality, death, and the afterlife. Mundy discusses learning to let go, the ephemeral nature of the body, the eternal reality of the mind, and the reawakening of our Spirit as the one, true home.

 

Synopsis:

You do not live here. We are trying to reach your real home. We are trying to reach the place where you are truly welcome. We are trying to reach God.

 —A Course in Miracles W-49.4:5

 

There is no bigger mystery, nothing more compelling than the desire to know about “life after life.” Jon Mundy, the respected longtime teacher and interpreter of A Course in Miracles, now investigates that enigma, using insights from the Course on mortality, death, and the afterlife. Mundy discusses facing death and learning to let go, the ephemeral nature of the physical body and the eternal reality of the mind, and the reawakening of our Spirit as the one, true home. It’s a book filled with hope—and a way to alleviate our fear of death.

Synopsis:

The Buddhist approach to death can be of great benefit to people of all backgrounds—as has been demonstrated time and again in Joan Halifaxs decades of work with the dying and their caregivers. Inspired by traditional Buddhist teachings, her work is a source of wisdom for all those who are charged with a dying persons care, facing their own death, or wishing to explore and contemplate the transformative power of the dying process. Her teachings affirm that we can open and contact our inner strength, and that we can help others who are suffering to do the same.
