For the growing number of people who are preparing for and coping with their parents' deaths, and for young people who have never been exposed to a loved one's death, this book will prepare them. For health-care professionals who have been unable to handle their patients' deaths, for physicians who feel like failures each time a patient dies, and for people -- and their families -- who are facing death in the near future, this book will assist them in understanding and relating to the dying process.
In this groundbreaking book on the meaning of death, Barbara Harris Whitfield shares her near-death experiences and the stories of individuals who, assisted by her loving help, left this life with dignity. These accounts will inspire readers, allow them to accept death more easily, and reveal the connection to the Spirit that embraces and guides us as we die. Whitfield shows how terminal patients can be fully present, even in their deepest pain, so they can spread kindness, compassion and forgiveness.
Whether readers fear death because it symbolizes the unknown, marvel at its awesome mystery, or grieve for a loved one it has claimed, this book will answer their questions about what happens when we die.
