Présentation de l'éditeur

In his new book, Stephen Levine, author of the perennial best-seller Who Dies?, teaches us how to live each moment, each hour, each day mindfully--as if it were all that was left. On his deathbed, Socrates exhorted his followers to practice dying as the highest form of wisdom. Levine decided to live this way himself for a whole year, and now he shares with us how such immediacy radically changes our view of the world and forces us to examine our priorities. Most of us go to extraordinary lengths to ignore, laugh off, or deny the fact that we are going to die, but preparing for death is one of the most rational and rewarding acts of a lifetime. It is an exercise that gives us the opportunity to deal with unfinished business and enter into a new and vibrant relationship with life. Levine provides us with a year-long program of intensely practical strategies and powerful guided meditations to help with this work, so that whenever the ultimate moment does arrive for each of us, we will not feel that it has come
too soon.

As I have accompanied the dying to the threshold over the last twenty years, it has become painfully clear how often death takes people unawares. Lire la première page

4.0 étoiles sur 5 5 stars if you're New Age, 2 if you're not, 4 to compromise 23 mai 2003
Par Brad4d - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Stephen Levine has worked with the Dying for several years, and wrote this book as an exercise to prepare to die by preparing to live. He relates his personal insights of the dynamic process of dying, and suggests an exercise to be undertaken by one who knows they have... only one year to live.
This is an exceptionally difficult book to review. On the five-star side, the author has some exceptional credentials and the work has been well-reviewed by people with a wide variety of perspectives. Some of his exercises (such as his "soft-belly" meditation, his advice to carefully observe our thoughts-as-they-arise, and his suggestions to recall and bid farewell to our most pleasant memories and to forgive our worst ones) are simply wonderful. They have aided my own practice immensely. I commend his gentle assurances that, despite our fears, All Should Be Well (most religious leaders have said the same thing). I think the author has made a noble effort to tackle a hugely difficult subject.
On the dark side, however, I wouldn't give this book to someone imminently facing the Great Gulp unless they were pretty comfortable with the New Age view of Death. Many good people feel preparing for death requires much regret, repentance, suffering, uncertainty, angst, fear, etcetera, and this book might provoke outrage from those people at a sensitive time without any corresponding redemptive value (I indeed respect a terminally-ill reviewer who trashed this book). The author seems to feel death should be kind of a peaceable, emotionally blissy, blend-with-the-infinite, far-out sort of experience. I wouldn't exactly say he views death as the spiritual equivalent of a trip to Disneyland but ... you get the picture. I'm sorry to again be so totally crass, but you have several financial and material responsibilities in preparing your loved ones for your after-death experience, and this book glossed over them pretty darn quickly. The book is New Age Ambiguous -- I looked over one section and put negatives in place of the positives, and it read pretty much the same either way. I'm skeptical the author's theology or ontology improve on the Buddha, who was silent regarding The Ultimate Question. I also agree with other reviewers who pointed out the twelve-month exercise is ultimately artificial and can degenerate into shallowness. Finally, no bibliography, no index, and no backup data for some Pretty Big Assertions-As-Facts.

I finally suggest four stars as a compromise. I also gave a respectable rating because of the sheer value of some of his meditational exercises, and suggest the book for those reasons alone.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A new way to look and life and death 8 décembre 2000
Par Sheri O. Zampelli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
We're all going to die. Levine's book helps us to view life and death from a broader perspective. Levine has spent considerable time working with terminally ill clients. According to him, people on their death bed commonly mourn their unfinished business. Be it unfufilled dreams, broken promises, or unresolved conflicts, life regrets are one of the most troublesome aspects of dying.
Levine's book gave me motivation to begin living each day as if it's my last. It made me consciously aware of the importance of not putting life on hold.
This book also encouraged me to be more accepting and conscious in daily life. Many of us do all we can to avoid pain. Levine believes that accepting and moving through discomfort is actually less painful than tensing up with fear. I believe this applies not only to physical pain, but also mental and emotional discomfort. Many times the events I've resisted and resented the most are the ones that offered the greatest satisfation and personal growth once I got to the other side.
Levine's book made me feel more comfortable with the ideas such as acceptance and humilty. In general, life is simpler and more peaceful when I live in line with these virtues.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Why (and How) to Read this Book 5 février 2012
Par Reading & Writing 24/7 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I see that some reviewers give this book a poor rating because (1) it lacks practical content like making a will and paying off debt, or (2)it does not realistically address the traumatizing emotions felt by a person who is left with only a year to live.

But the book is not for the physically dying. He and others have written books to help people facing that tragic fate. Instead, "A Year to Live" is for those of us who do not want to reach the end of our lives with regrets. The book helps you find joy, gratitude, peace, and forgiveness while we still have plenty of time to enjoy them. The best exercise for accomplishing these states is to imagine what you would do with your life if told you have a year to live. Like the old saying, "No one on their deathbed ever says, 'I should have spent more time at the office.'"

"A Year to Live" is the book to read if you don't want to reach the end of your life with feelings of regret, failure, shame, or loneliness.

I read this book many years ago, and have recommended it many times. Now my husband is going through a crisis of the soul so I just ordered it for him (having loaned my copy out at some point). He is as far from new-agey as they come, yet is finding enormous value in reading it. The key is a willingness to look for the unseen powers of love, forgiveness (etc) and the spirituality inherent in everything.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a life-changing book 15 juillet 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book has changed my whole outlook on the
world. Because of S. Levine & his insightful
thinking, I went out on my birthday and wrote
down my goals for the year based on what his book
discussed. I am truly thankful for reading this book
as it helped me to realized that NOW is the
time to make changes if you are not happy with
anything in your life. Don't wait for someday.
I want to thank Stephen for this beautiful book and
hope that it is as special and life-changing for
others as it was for me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Practical Perspectives on Death 12 décembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Cassette
"Meditating on death in order to fully live " could be the sub-title of this book. In dealing with illness and approaching death in our family, I've read almost all of Kubler-Ross's books and while they have been inspirational and her work certainly groundbreaking, I found this book more helpful in terms of describing the experience of dying in a way that allows me to be more able to be at the bedside of our family memeber. Simply in reading it gives one a profound yet extremly practical perspective on dying and of one's own eventual death.
