Author/Artist Review

Author: Samuel Lee Oliver
Located in: South Bend, IN
Submitted: June 02, 2004

    Tell us a little about yourself.  You can find out more about me on: www.soulandspirit.org

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted people to realize that each of us is on a spiritual path. We are becoming more soul than body as we age or mature into who we really are. Life is a journey to enjoy, learn from, and embrace with all our humanity and with all our spirit.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope people will learn that dying people are "really" coming alive from the inside out. Our ability to serve the needs of the dying enables us to find our authentic voice and our authentic self through compassion and unconditional love.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Wayne Dyer Carolyn Myss Deepak Chopra Brian Swimm Ram Dass Rev. Shoney Oliver - he is my dad

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I have worked with dying people professionally for over 15 years.
