about this book

Who Dies?—“the Bible of the Conscious Dying Movement” (Harpers)—reveals the philosophical and spiritual underpinnings of the new Hospice movement with its focus on providing a warm, supportive, and open environment for the dying individual—as opposed to sterile environments that separate the dying person from family, friends, children and familiar surroundings. Future caregivers will learn the rationale behind “conscious dying”—a process that supplants rational fear with calm, simple, compassionate intuitive understanding—how it has been applied in hospices, and why it has been so successful in transforming the dying process.
