This book of lively talks, including question and answer sessions, is a companion guide to The American Book of the Dead. In its practical and direct approach and its innovative perspectives on death, dying, and the integration of our own death into a conscious life, this book offers a keen insight into a contemporary western teaching. Deepening the understanding of a compassionate, non-sentimental approach to the great voyage that very human will undertake, this book is recommended for every reader of spiritual literature.

"The Great Adventure offers insight, support and practical approaches to the rich tapestry of materials available to hospice and palliative care workers for supporting the cultural and spiritual diversity of patient and family experience and the ending of life. It is also a great course of how to intentionally, purposefully and joyfully live in the present moment."
