*2016 Silver IPPY Award Winner for Aging/Death & Dying
In Spiritual Perspectives on Death and Dying, the author gathers basic insights from five major sources: C. G. Jung, the LSD research of Stanislav Grof, the Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist traditions and the writings of Alice Bailey. The sequence of events of the dying process, the fundamental journey of the soul and the thoughtful advice from these sources are reviewed. What unfolds is a vista of challenge and hope.
"I found this to be an excellent book. It is a quick read but it goes deep. It connects the reader with the experience of death and dying that unites all of us who share the human experience. It also successfully prompts a connection with the reservoir of accumulated wisdom from different traditions in a way that brings hope to the dying process. Anyone confronted in some way with the reality of death and dying will benefit from this book."
"A lovely little book with succinct and clearly written summaries of the world's major spiritual traditions addressing the end of life. The author weaves her personal experiences with loved ones as well as her own confrontation with a potential terminal diagnosis into the well researched intellectual content of the book's tapestry."
"This wonderful book is a must read for anyone who ponders the meaning of life and mortality, and who is interested in helpful information from ancient and modern sources."
