Publisher's Summary

The Buddhist approach to death can be of great benefit to people of all backgrounds - as has been demonstrated time and again in Joan Halifax's decades of work with the dying and their caregivers. Inspired by traditional Buddhist teachings, her work is a source of wisdom for all those who are charged with a dying person's care, facing their own death, or wishing to explore and contemplate the transformative power of the dying process. Her teachings affirm that we can open and contact our inner strength, and that we can help others who are suffering to do the same.

Tender and honest perspective

I'm caring for a loved one with a terminal illness and turned to this book for help. I am well acquainted with Buddhist thought, but you do not have to be to reap the benefits of this book. I have been comforted, validated, and informed. Mostly I realize how little any of us knows about death and I can accept that in peace. I also realize that sometimes when I feel I should be doing more, simply bearing witness is all there is to do. May this book bring comfort to others.
