What the Dying Teach Us Lessons on Living



What the Dying Teach Us Lessons on Living by Samuel L. Oliver, April Ford

What the Dying Teach Us: Lessons on Living is a spiritual approach to health care that teaches the reader about values, hope, and faith through actual experiences of terminally ill persons. This unique approach to health care teaches the living how to deal with grief and the bereavement process through faith and prayer. Priests, pastors, chaplains, and psychotherapists will learn how to treat parishioners or patients with the values the dying leave behind, allowing part of their deceased loved one's beliefs and teachings to guide them through the grieving process. In the end, you will also become aware of your spiritual self while helping others heal and renew their soul. 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.
