Light on Death

The Spiritual Art of Dying

Written By: J. Phillip Jones
All of us die, and most of us are called upon to support loved ones or friends in dying or in grieving a death. We wonder about the nature of this universal phenomenon. Is dying only an uninvited tragedy or can it also be seen as a sacred passage? Can one's end of life journey be a time of completion and even growth? Light on Death views life as a pilgrimage culminating in the Great Transition at death. Drawing on Eastern insights from the ancient sages of India as well as modern hospice experiences, the author explores a spiritual art of dying in which death is the last and most powerful rite of passage.
