There aren't many things more terrifying than having to stare down the inevitability of death. More than fear, though, is the tangle of other emotions that can crowd this painful phase: guilt, anger, excruciating despair. Author Cindy Bertrand Larsen, who has long worked in palliative care, seeks to mitigate these complex feelings for those who are suffering them, to deliver a sense of peace and fulfillment, and to help these troubled souls find resolution with dangling questions and unresolved issues.
Though different cultures have different approaches to dying and death, there are some universal truths around achieving a so-called "good death." In these instances, these people's transcendence to another place made them better. And those who traveled with them on their sacred journey are similarly blessed with the same sense of enlightenment and peace.
Here is a truly special book that reminds us that we can choose to let death conquer and consume us, or we can choose to let death uplift us, to allow it to teach and transform us, to make us more compassionate souls....
