Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Levine, formerly a colleague of Ram Dass and Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, has worked for almost 20 years with terminally ill people. His meditations, from a Buddhist perspective, touch universal human issues in profound ways that will appeal to people of various religious commitments. More than anything else, he calls his readers to deeper consciousness, more awareness (including awareness of ``negative'' emotions and of everyday actions, such as eating), and greater compassion and loving kindness both for themselves and for others. This book will be especially useful to those facing chronic pain, addiction, and life-threatening illness or im pending death. Highly recommended for public and seminary libraries.
From the Publisher
"Stephen Levine's writings, work, and presence have been a shining light to me and thousands of others as he pioneered new ways of looking at life and the power that the healing of the mind and heart presents."- Gerald Jampolsky, M.D., Founder and Consultant of the Center for Attitudinal Healing, Tiburon, California

"With consummate skill, Stephen invites us into the intimacy and subtlety of conscious living."- Ram Dass

"Stephen's work is magic.  His work with the grieving and dying is amongst the most skillful and compassionate that I am aware of."- Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Meet the Author

   In the mid-1970s, while working with Ram Dass (Grist for the Mill 1976) and teaching meditation in the California prison system, Stephen Levine met Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. For the next few years he led workshops with her and learned from the terminally ill the need for deeper levels of healing and the profound joy of service (A Gradual Awakening, 1979).  In 1979 he began teaching workshops with his wife, Ondrea, as they continue to serve the terminally ill and those deeply affected by loss as co-directors of the Hanuman Foundation Dying Project (Who Dies?, 1982). For three years they maintained a free-consultation telephone line for those confronting serious illness or the possible death of a loved one (Meeting at the Edge, 1984). As the Levines continued to gain insight from those who approached illness with a merciful awareness, their explorations deepened while further meditative techniques were developed to "let healing in." Their guided meditations for healing grief, heavy emotional states, sexual abuse, and subtler forms of life/death preparation brought them international recognition (Healing into Life and Death, 1987).
   Presently Stephen and Ondrea Levine live in the high mountains of the Southwest, "attempting to practice what we preach" in the silence of the deep woods, seeking "the healing we took birth for."  They no longer have a telephone or do individual counseling, as their energies, for now, are mostly directed inward.  To continue "the work" they have created Warm Rock Tapes (P.O. Box 108, Chamisal, NM 87521) to share the guided meditations and talks from the few times a year they "go out" to teach.  Their long-awaited Relationships as a Path of Awakening is soon to be published, as is a book of poetry, Healings, and an "autobiography of the heart."

    profoundly healing

    I have been using some of these meditations with clients in my therapy practice for years. The level of sophistication they offer is profound. These meditations touch feelings, beliefs, behaviors, body awareness, mindfulness and spirituality. They can help us re-orient ourselves in how we interpret our experience.

    Not as expected

    I didn't think this book contained useful information... It may contain advanced theories, but as I tried to apply them.. I gained NO benefit.
