In his new book, Stephen Levine, author of the perennial best-seller Who Dies?, teaches us how to live each moment, each hour, each day mindfully--as if it were all that was left. On his deathbed, Socrates exhorted his followers to practice dying as the highest form of wisdom. Levine decided to live this way himself for a whole year, and now he shares with us how such immediacy radically changes our view of the world and forces us to examine our priorities. Most of us go to extraordinary lengths to ignore, laugh off, or deny the fact that we are going to die, but preparing for death is one of the most rational and rewarding acts of a lifetime. It is an exercise that gives us the opportunity to deal with unfinished business and enter into a new and vibrant relationship with life. Levine provides us with a year-long program of intensely practical strategies and powerful guided meditations to help with this work, so that whenever the ultimate moment does arrive for each of us, we will not feel that it has come too soon.

"Death studies have, over the last twenty years, witnessed a flourishing of research and scholarship particularly in areas such as dying and bereavement, cultural practices and fear of dying. But, despite its importance, a specific focus on the nature of personal mortality has attracted surprisingly little attention. This book breaks new ground by bringing together available ideas and research on the meaning of one's own death. Its content is organized around the question of how an ongoing relationship might be possible when the threat of consciousness coming to an end points to an unthinkable and unspeakable nothingness. The book then argues that, despite this threat, an ongoing relationship with one's own death is still possible by means of conceptual devices that help shape personal mortality into a relatable object. Four of these devices, or 'enabling frames', are examined: essential structures, passionate suffusion, point-of-transition and self-generative process. While each frame conceptualizes mortality differently, they share a capacity to move it from unintelligibility to something we can think and speak about, thereby enabling us to maintain an ongoing engagement. The final chapters explore ways in which pursuing a relationship with our own deaths could become a normal and acceptable activity throughout our lives"--

For over thirty-two years, Stephen and Ondrea Levine have provided emotional and spiritual support for those who face life-threatening illness and for their caregivers. Through their healing and forgiveness workshops, many writings, and compassionate interaction with others, they have deeply touched the lives of people throughout the world. The Healing I Took Birth For is the heartfelt sharing of Ondrea Levine's life of service. It's a deeply inspiring example of how one faces illness, great personal difficulties, spiritual practice, grace-and the spiritual unfolding from a limited sense of self into the deathless essence of pure Being. The catalyst for sharing Ondrea's story came about as a result of a medical prognosis that foretold the end of a lifetime of spiritual exploration. In this deeply touching collaboration between Ondrea and Stephen, they struggle with the heart-breaking/heart-healing task of trying to express, through the limitations of language, both Ondrea's inner experiences and the significant outward events in her life-or, as Ondrea likes to call it, a "love story." "This is the most intimate collaboration of any we have worked on," says Stephen, "It gave us an even deeper opportunity to be within each other's experience in a most remarkable way. It was nothing short of grace to be able to write this story in her first person singular. It represents part of her healing process as well as mine." "Stephen and Ondrea's teachings have served as a profound source of wisdom and inspiration for me over the years. Their work is created from a place of reverence and compassion, and as such benefits all who seek to live with a clarity, resolve and an open heart." -Rich Fernandez, Ph.D., head of Learning & Organizational Development, eBay Stephen and Ondrea Levine are the authors of more than ten books, including Who Dies, Embracing the Beloved, and A Year to Live. While they live in relative isolation in northern New Mexico, the www.LevineTalks.com website is a way for them to connect with an outside audience and continue their teaching work.

The multimedia package includes the CD, Inspiration for Meditation, which contains 3 programs with meditations and chants. Very beautiful and useful for the therapists. We are all on a journey of returning to the source of Love. On our way, we can either coast along with the current or use a paddle to speed our journey. We are all going home. It is up to us how long that journey takes. This book provides a paddle for those who have coasted long enough. Sacred Healing is for those interested in deepening their understanding of the inherent healing power of the soul and who desire to incorporate spiritual approaches into healing the mind, body, and emotions. It provides specific tools and approaches for psychotherapeutic interventions that integrate Western psychology and Eastern spirituality. The differences between the two systems are explored in depth, with a view to convincing Western psychotherapy to broaden its base and to urge Western therapists into spiritual training, not only to broaden their role in society but also to increase their effectiveness as therapists. Sacred Healing is designed to be a handbook for psycho-spiritual practice and set a standard for quality, spiritually oriented psychotherapy.

"This manual on death education is a 'must' for any involved in hospice care or work with the terminally ill. It covers everything from living with terminally ill individuals to the right to die, memorial societies, and death ceremonies. Its focus on the emotional and economic costs of death is unparalleled".--"Midwest Book Review".
