Death Makes Life Possible: Revolutionary Insights on Living, Dying, and the Continuation of Consciousness by Marilyn Schlitz

Our beliefs about what happens when we die define how we live today. And more and more of us are discovering a radical truth: when we release our fear of death, we open to an immensely richer life right here and now. But how do we incorporate this profound insight into our everyday lives? With Death Makes Life Possible, Dr. Marilyn Schlitz presents a wealth of teachings and practical guidance on how to turn this taboo topic into a source of peace, hope, connection, and compassion.
Featuring contributions by eminent scientists and scholars; spiritual leaders and devout skeptics; health and healing practitioners; and men, women, and children from all walks of life, this far-reaching work reveals the myriad ways that we grow and change by expanding our perspectives on the ultimate mystery facing each one of us.
