Book Description: Most of us try to avoid thinking about death-until the moment it stares us in the face. But as Tina L. Staley and Edward W. Bastian have discovered, when we engage with our inevitable mortality at this moment, we open the door to fearlessness, joy, and the complete experience of being alive. In Dying Without Fear, these two healers present a guide for bringing an open mind and heart to the final challenge we all must face. Integrating scientific and spiritual perspectives from around the world, this collection of teachings includes: * Life review exercises to access the liberating "deathbed revelation" at any stage of your life * Practices for easing the suffering of a terminal illness * Essential teachings about gratitude-the key practice for living life fully at any age Featuring the wisdom of Joan Halifax, Dr. Ira Byock, Tessa Bielecki, Dr. Marilyn Schlitz, and more, Dying Without Fear is an illuminating, informative-and even exciting-guide to consciously embracing our mortality. Readers will discover that when we prepare to cross the final threshold with honesty and courage, we enrich every day we live in this world.
