While What the Dying Teach Us concentrates on the values you can learn from the terminally ill, the author includes his own views on:
- how our tears manifest the depth into which our relationship with a deceased loved one travels
- how dimensions of reality lead us to appreciate the present
- experiencing events in life without judgment or comparison
- the role faith may play in health care as a healer of the terminally ill
- how the strength of prayer can drastically change lives
What the Dying Teach Us celebrates the spirit loved ones leave behind and teaches you how to surrender into an eternal relationship with them. Furthermore, because of this experience, you will be able to find a new and deeper realization of your own existence. What the Dying Teach Us will help you spiritually connect with yourself as well as with deceased loved ones that continue to live on through faith.

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.
