A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DEATH AND DYING
BY JOHN WHITE

A Compassionate, Practical View of Death

   
  Many people are so afraid of death that they don’t want to think about it, hear about it, or plan for it. But death must be understood and prepared for -- otherwise we will live in fear and burden our loved ones with unanswered questions and unnecessary responsibilities. In A Practical Guide to Death and Dying, consciousness researcher John White provides a thorough, compassionate look at death and explores the biology, psychology, and metaphysics of one’s own demise. In addition to recounting the personal stories of those who have developed a healthy attitude toward death, White also offers a program for personal action. He provides information about the evidence of life after death; how to eliminate fears about death; how to plan for it; practical exercises for learning how to die; and where to find more help. A Practical Guide to Death and Dying will benefit readers who are ill and those who are healthy, readers who care for the dying, and readers who are curious about what lies ahead.

“…a very solid contribution to the field of death education, blending advice, experiential exercises, humor, and wisdom.” -- Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., co-founder, International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS)

“…this contains a good deal of worthwhile information that will be of value to both the physician or therapist dealing with clients who are involved with serious illness, as well as the lay person.” -- Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine and Miracles
