Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Smith communicates such a deep trust in death that we, too, as readers, start to regard death as a friend." (Inquiring Mind)

"In Lessons from the Dying, Rodney Smith shares with clarity and compassion 15 years of insights and skillful means learned from working with the dying. Schooled in Buddhist meditation, Rodney brings clarity and a straightforward approach to these 'lessons' which makes them quite practical for the deepening of the mind as well as the broadening of the heart. He offers to the dying first, and the rest of us by association, an increase in loving presence." (Stephen Levine, author of Meetings on the Edge and Who Dies?)

"Filled with his wise and rich experience, this is a valuable book of practice, stories and meditations." (Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart)

"In this book, the richness of Rodney's years of meditation practice combine with his years of working with those dying and those left behind. It is a clear, practical and compassionate combination. The book rests on Rodney's profound dedication to the truth, which shines through in the text, the stories, the reflections and the exercises." (Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness)

"Lessons From the Dying could also be called 'lessons for the living' because of the courageous honesty revealed in so many of the stories told here....Rodney skillfully guides us through the subtleties and nuances of our own assumptions, hopes, and fears, and shows the possibility of living and dying with an open heart. [This book] is a wise and gentle reminder of what faces us all, a reminder that death is the great mystery that illuminates life." (Joseph Goldstein, author of Insight Meditation)

"Lessons from the Dying is a personal and heartfelt exploration of the human spirit and our inevitable encounter with death." (Joan Halifax, co-author of The Human Encounter with Death)

"Many will find Smith's heartfelt exploration of the human spirit intriguing and comforting. The book is not so much about dying, but how to live fully, embracing the inevitability of change and loss." (Today's Librarian)

"Smith writes compellingly on the nature, value, and connection between life and death. [The dying] have much to teach us about the manner in which we could begin to lives our lives anew. This book is an eloquent, sensitive testimony by an individual who has deeply considered this important, life-altering event." (The Beacon)

"Keeps coming back persistently to the wisdom the dying have for us." (Tricycle: The Buddhist Review)

"In this extraordinary volume, Rodney Smith opens our hearts, minds, and souls to the great mystery we all must face." (Values & Visions)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Are a person's perceptions and values altered when facing the end of life? Do the dying see the world in a way that could help the rest of us learn how to live? This book takes us into the lessons of the dying. Through the words and circumstances of the terminally ill, we become immersed in their wisdom and in our own mortality. The dying speak to us in direct and personal ways, pointing toward a wise and sane way to live.

In everyday language we can all understand, Rodney Smith extends the conversation about death to people of all ages and states of health. Through exercises and guided meditative reflections at the end of each chapter, the lessons of the dying become a blueprint for our own growth.

This is the third book of Rodney smith's that I have read. It is superb. lt is a bit more approachable than his other two books but it is neither lighter or less profound. Each chapter is a gem that keeps on resonating for a long while. I will reread this book oftern.

I have given this book to many friends amenable to Buddhist practice / meditation who are dealing with death. I have found it very insightful and the exercises within very useful for using the experience close to death to be affirming and life-changing for the survivor, and a support to the dying if applicable.

Not a quick read. But the subject is not dealing with light weight matters. It is an eye opener if your mind is receptive. It does tie in with other lessons on life I have learned over the years. It will be reread over time. It is one of those books that reveal more each time I go through it.
