Prevailing Western tradition sees death as an enemy to be fought and overcome. Therefore, we tend to fear death, not wanting to face or understand it until we are forced by circumstance to do so. In this remarkable book Kathleen Dowling Singh offers us a rich and rewarding path to understanding the process of dying. She helps us to see death as safe and natural - a stage of enlightenment, of finally coming home to our true self. Examining the end of life in the light of current psychological understanding, religious wisdom and compassionate medical science, she offers a fresh, deeply comforting message of hope and courage as we contemplate the meaning of our morality. With profound insight, she balances expert analysis with moving accounts drawn from her experience working with hundreds of dying patients at a large hospice. Written for those aware that their life is coming to an end, those who care for the dying and, ultimately, for all of us who inevitably face our own death and the deaths of the people we love, 'The Grace in Dying' reveals that dying is the most transforming, powerful and spiritually enriching of life's experiences. 'This splendid book is caressed by wisdom and compassion. It brings immense hope and meaning to life's final chapter.' Larry Dossey, M.D. author of 'Healing Words' 'This book takes us on a journey, inviting us to acknowledge death, explore it, live it and be transformed through it. A valuable and thought-provoking contribution to the growing literature on death and dying.' Anne Hayes, Our Lady's Hospice, Dublin.
