Overview

An uplifting collection of spiritually illuminating texts and powerfully thought- provoking real life stories, showing death as an integral part of life. Modern medical advances have resulted in death and dying becoming a taboo, which leaves us feeling isolated when the inescapability of death touches our lives. These touching observations of closeness to someone else who is dying, and personal accounts of near death experiences and after-death communication, illustrate how coming to terms with the inevitability of death is actually a life-affirming experience. These emotionally powerful and inspirational experiences address timeless questions and show how each of the people has come to understand that death teaches us that the preciousness of life must be lived with a sense of purpose and meaning, as a celebration of our existence.

What People Are Saying

Bill Guggenheim
"Practicing Conscious Living and Dying offers a wide range of research that confirms death is only a transition. Even ardent skeptics will be impressed by the excellent firsthand accounts that provide evidence for the continuum of consciousness beyond the death of our physical body."--(Bill Guggenheim, co-author of Hello From Heaven!)
P.M.H. Atwater
"The comfort this book gives is so special and so deep, I would love to see every hospice on earth have this book readily available, and every home where questions arise as to who we are and what might happen to us after we die. Highly recommended."--(P.M.H. Atwater, Near-Death Researcher and author)
Kenneth Ring
"Death, it has been said, is the supreme teacher, and this beautiful and deeply moving book certainly exemplifies the adage. In it, you will meet about twenty people whose lives were profoundly touched -- and immeasurably enriched -- by an encounter with death. here, they tell their stories in their own voices. The stories you will find here are not just consolatory; they are inspiring and instructive, and some will cause you to weep or marvel. The author also does a fine job of supplying just enough commentary for her argument that death is not a dead end. This is a book that should find, and deserves, a wide and grateful audience."--(Kenneth Ring Ph.D., author of Lessons from the Light)
Evelyn Elsaesser-Valarino
"A must read for anyone who wishes to live consciously, and as a result, prepares for dying and beyond."--(Evelyn Elsaesser-Valarino, Author and NDE researcher)
Yolaine Stout
"Practicing Conscious Living and Dying weaves an exceptionally beautiful fabric of historic, religious, modern day and philosophical views of near-death and related phenomena interwoven with inspiring true stories that underscore the positive and dramatic effect that death can have on a person's life. A must read for anyone interested in near-death experiences and the continuity of consciousness. A beautiful and inspiring book."--(Yolaine Stout, President, International Association for Near-Death Studies)

    Moving Collection of Stories Powerfully Affirms Life

    PRACTICING CONSCIOUS LIVING & DYING takes us where people go when they die, traveling with those who have been declared officially dead and who managed to return to life to share their stories. This refreshing book is a collection of sixteen very different personal accounts of people who have come face-to-face with death in many various ways. There is a rich treasure trove of experience shared in this book which invites the reader to come on a journey each of us cares about, because it's a journey we are all destined to take. I love the way each first person account vibrates with such heartfelt emotion that I feel I'm right there... and the way that many people have found ways to make the deaths of their loved ones richly meaningful. One of the most surprising and moving stories that touched my heart was the story about search and rescue teams of firemen with their special dogs. After learning of how such close relationships between fireman and dog affect and improve the firemen's other relationships, I will never see the world the same way again. There is a gift in being fully in this moment, right here, right now, rather than mentally or emotionally elsewhere... and I feel immensely grateful to this book for helping me vicariously experience how to go about regaining that sense of childlike wonder and simple heartfelt appreciation with the simple beauty in this world. There is truly something ennobling and empowering in consciously living one's life, and PRACTICING CONSCIOUS LIVING & DYING helps us discover the secrets of how to better to enjoy the lives we are so blessed to have right now. This book is an extraordinary breath of fresh air for anyone caught up in the minutiae of daily life who longs to catch a glimpse of meaning, continuity, connection, and inspiration beyond the hum-drum everyday.
