Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While working with the terminally ill, Levine, director of the Hanuman Foundation's Dying Project, discovered an interesting phenomenon. In preparing for death, many were being healed. Levine also noticed that those who became physically well were often in better health than they had been before. Further study lead him to conclude that the physical healing was a by-product of a new balance of mind and heart. Vivid case histories of patients are used to illustrate how individuals learned to let go, become open to life, and stop struggling against illness, pain, and death. Levine discusses meditation and how to use it to ``heal into life and death.'' This approach is certainly not for everyone, but for many terminally ill patients and their families it may offer new hope and peace. Mary L. Kirk, Unv. of North Carolina at Wilmington Lib.

Stephen Levine had written an exquiste book that explores the depth and breadth of healing. He has distilled years of compassionate service and articulates the truth and wisdom of the deeper processes of healing that he has witnessed. As a teacher and healer myself, I often refer to this book when I invite others to explore the mystery of healing. People who are facing death (which is all of us) would benefit by reading this book as it offers a far greater understanding of the process of healing into death and invites us to live our lives more consciously and courageously. 'A Year to Live' is a good book to read following this one. This book in and of itself is a gift of hope and healing for all who read it.
