"Our life is a journey that begins with birth and ends with death, and
once we begin that journey, we are on our way, non-stop. There are no
breathers, no time-outs. It is a one shot deal. So we should relate to
our life nowówhile we still canóbut to do so, we must also learn to
relate to our death."óJudith L. Lief
Making Friends with Death
guides us in exploring our relationship to our own mortality and also in working with the dying. Highlighting the immediacy of death as an aspect of everyday life, this practical guide offers simple exercises for deepening awareness and appreciation of change; practices for cultivating kindness; as well as contemplation slogans and caregiver guidelines, drawn from the Buddhist tradition, to help us discover ways of living more openheartedly and with less fear.
