Editorial Reviews

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

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.

For over thirty years, Stephen—along with his wife Ondrea—provided emotional and spiritual support for those who were life-threatened, and for caregivers. He is one of a generation of pioneering teachers who, along with Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstein, Ram Dass, and Sharon Salzberg, have made the teachings of Theravada Buddhism more widely available to students in the West. He is the author of A Gradual Awakening, Healing into Life and Death, Guided Meditations, Explorations and Healings, and Who Dies?. Stephen Levine passed away in 2016 at the age of 78.

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.

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.
