"In this ground-breaking book, the Dalia Lama advises us to gain familiarity with the process and practices of death so that, when we are physically weak, our minds can still be focussed in the right direction, and in the right manner. Advice on Dying cautions us not to fall under the influence of the mistaken belief of permanence. We should not think that we have a lot of time in this life, because there is a great danger of wasting our lives in procrastination. He suggests we meditate on our lives and on the indefiniteness of the time of death. For, though the time of our death is uncertain, death itself is certain... In this empowering and positive book, His Holiness brings new inspiration to a subject that we, in the WEst, have long ignored to our detriment. It is only by taming our minds and fully facing the end of our lives that we can fully live in the present moment."

The Dalai Lama draws from a wide range of traditions and beliefs to explore the stages we all go through when we die, which are the very same stages we experience in life when we go to sleep, faint, or reach orgasm (Shakespeare¿s ¿little death¿). The stages are described so vividly that we can imagine the process of traveling deeper into the mind, on the ultimate journey of transformation. In this way, He shows us how to prepare for that time and, in doing so, how to enrich our time on earth, die without fear or upset, and influence the stage between this life and the next so that we may gain the best possible incarnation. As always, the ultimate goal is to advance along the path to enlightenment. ¿An essential tool for attaining eternal bliss.¿

Award-winning writer and nurse Sallie Tisdale offers a lyrical, thought-provoking yet practical perspective on death and dying in this frank, direct and compassionate meditation on the inevitable. _______________________________________ From the sublime (the faint sound of Mozart as you take your last breath) to the ridiculous (lessons on how to close the sagging jaw of a corpse), Tisdale leads the reader through the peaks and troughs of death with a calm, wise and humorous hand. More than a how-to manual or a spiritual bible, this is a graceful compilation of honest and intimate anecdotes based on the deaths Tisdale has witnessed in her work and life, as well as stories from cultures, traditions and literature around the world. Tisdale explores all the heartbreaking, beautiful, terrifying, confusing, absurd and even joyful experiences that accompany the work of dying, including: A good death: What does it mean to die 'a good death'? Can there be more than one kind? What can I do to make my death, or the deaths of my loved ones, good? Communication: What to say and not to say, what to ask and when, from the dying, loved ones, doctors and more. Last months, weeks, days and hours: What you might expect, physically and emotionally, including the limitations, freedoms, pains and joys of this unique time. Bodies: What happens to a body after death? What options are available to me after my death, and how do I choose - and make sure my wishes are followed? Grief: 'Grief is a story that must be told, over and over. . . Grief is the breath after the last one.' Beautifully written and compulsively readable, Advice for the Dying offers the resources and reassurance that we all need for planning the ends of our lives. It is essential reading for all of us.

Love Tea And Advice From A Dying Mother

Though I don't have legal clearance to give juicy details, through much incredible family dysfunction, both of my girls spent a significant amount of years in the custody of their grandmother. This precarious situation led me to, though court-appointed, at first, psychotherapy. Several years later of therapy led me to explore and process my own ambiguous childhood that was riddled with sexual abuse. This exploration spawned another realm of self-discovery that led to an extreme appreciation for radical forgiveness (see next section), for which I am eternally grateful, for the maturation of my own emotional health. The realm of emotional-processing and self-discovery, along with the deisre to leave a by-product of said disocvery to my kids (& others) re: the value in character/value building and steering one's own moral compass, that they may have missed out on, is the largest inspiration, for writing this book. The contents of these pages represent the conversations, experiences and the transference of knowledge of your mothers’ morals, standards and values via tough and expressed love that we have had up until your 18th birthday(s) respectively. I also want to selfishly, prepare and/or reserve my inevitable place in ‘heaven‘, by fulfilling my “charge” as a mom. It is my fervent hope and prayer that every person, who has experienced a fragmented relationship with his/her parent/guardian, can gain enough practical and spiritual advice offered here, to build their own moral compass to live their lives fully and completely in love. Take the necessary steps to heal your relationship(s); it is possible and worth it. When I make the transition/die, don’t cry (much) because I’m gone; smile in gratitude for having had me in your life for whatever time we had together. I maintain a posture of gratitude for everything and everybody--whether positive or negative. The positive people and events, have created an enormous and expansive sense of gratitude (including, but certainly not limited to, my readers); the negative people and events, have spawned an enormous and expansive perplexity of forgiveness and love. I hope I’’ve completed my plight as God’s charge as a mother to my own children and many others as well.

"Counseling Hispanics through Loss, Grief, and Bereavement is an extremely timely and welcome addition to the literature in thanatology. Counselors will find in it the tools, knowledge, and insights to respond to a growing and diverse Hispanic community as individuals cope with loss and grief." From the Foreword by Kenneth J. Doka, PhD Professor, The College of New Rochelle Senior Consultant, The Hospice Foundation of America Hispanics, the fastest growing minority population in the United States, are increasingly willing to seek mental health counseling, creating a critical need for counselors to understand the values and traditions of Hispanic culture. This book examines these values and traditions and their impact on the ways in which this population copes with loss, grief, and bereavement across the life span. The book addresses the unique losses that may be faced by Hispanics, particularly newcomers who must adapt to a different language and unfamiliar customs. It focuses on such important cultural considerations as styles of verbal and nonverbal communication, personal space, social organization, environmental control factors, and the significance of gender. Competency-based models and Latino-specific counseling frameworks are integrated into the text, along with the historical and political context from which they arise. Numerous practical recommendations for improving quality of care are provided, with specific attention given to the great diversity of cultures within the Hispanic population, and the need for counselors to take these variations into consideration. Key Features: Facilitates understanding of Hispanic values and traditions to promote more sensitive and effective treatment Provides exercises to help therapists evaluate their own knowledge and awareness of particular Hispanic cultures Addresses factors that may impede a successful therapeutic relationship Presents specific techniques for building trust with Hispanic clients Includes illustrative case studies throughout the text
