Practicing Conscious Living and Dying Summary

Practicing Conscious Living and Dying: Stories of the Eternal Continuum of Consciousness by Annamaria Hemingway

An uplifting collection of spiritually illuminating texts and powerfully thought- provoking real life stories, showing death as an integral part of life. Modern medical advances have resulted in death and dying becoming a taboo, which leaves us feeling isolated when the inescapability of death touches our lives. These touching observations of closeness to someone else who is dying, and personal accounts of near death experiences and after-death communication, illustrate how coming to terms with the inevitability of death is actually a life-affirming experience. These emotionally powerful and inspirational experiences address timeless questions and help expand our limited awareness of the nature of consciousness. They show how each of the individuals concerned has come to understand that death teaches us that the preciousness of life must be lived with a sense of purpose and meaning, as a celebration of our existence.

Practicing Conscious Living and Dying Reviews

'This is a glorious book. It is an antidote to the fear of death, the bugaboo that has terrorized humans since time immemorial. "Practicing Conscious Living and Dying" raises the power of story to its most majestic purpose, that of helping people live richer, fuller, more meaningful lives. A science of immortality is in the making, and Annamaria Hemingway is one of its architects. Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary ThingsIf you are looking for an inspirational uplifting book about dying, this is it! Annamaria Hemingway has brightened my perspective about death through her penetrating study of NDE and her wonderful stories, each one full of security, clarity and warmth. Michelle Cromer, author of Exit Strategy: Thinking Outside the BoxWith "Practicing Conscious Living and Dying", Annamaria Hemingway achieves a perfect equilibrium between spiritual insights, and inspirational testimonies of some exceptional individuals who, by their generosity, altruism and courage have transformed the lives of many. A must-read for anyone who wishes to live life consciously and, as a result, prepare for death and beyond. Evelyn Elsaesser-Valarino, author of Talking with Angels about Illness, Death and Survival. Co-author with Kenneth Ring of Lessons from the Light.Death, it has been said is the supreme teacher, and this beautiful and deeply moving book certainly exemplifies the adage. In it, you will meet about twenty people whose lives were profoundly touched - and immeasurably enriched - by an encounter with death, either through a near-death experience or the death of a loved one. Here, they tell their stories in their own voices, and in many cases, show how they came to devote their lives, selflessly and nobly, to the service of others as a result of their encounter with death. The stories you will find here are not just consolatory: they are inspiring and instructive, and some will cause you to weep or marvel. The authors also do a fine job of supplying just enough commentary to provide a scholarly context for their argument that death is not a dead end. This is a book that should find, and deserve, a wide and grateful audience. Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Psychology University of Connecticut, author of Lessons from the LightI am captured by the style in which this book is written. Counterbalanced within each section is a series of personal stories of real people, illustrating through events in their own lives what has previously been described. And the way that this is done is like nothing else I have ever seen in any book - creating a unique and friendly closeness that makes what is shared as immediate as it is intimate.The style serves the book well as the subject of conscious living and dying cradles in the notion of "continuum," the ever-lastingness of what we can know and experience. Continuum...not so much what science would tell us but rather through what the history of human experience can know, as reflected through voices and lives of people you might know or could know, maybe even your own.The comfort "Practicing Conscious Living and Dying" gives is so special and so deep, I would love to see every hospice on earth have this book readily available, hospitals, too, and every home where questions arise as to who we are and what might happen to us after we die. Annamaria Hemingway with John Griffin has done an exceptional job. Highly recommended. P.M.H. Atwater, L.H.D., Near-Death Researcher and author of nine books on her findings, including The New Children and Near-Death Experiences, Coming Back to Life, Beyond the Light, We Live Forever, and Near-Death Experiences: The Complete Sourcebook."Practicing Conscious Living and Dying" weaves an exceptionally beautiful fabric of historic, religious, modern-day and philosophical views of near-death and related phenomena interwoven with inspiring true stories that underscore the positive and dramatic effect that death can have on a person's life. A must read for anyone interested in near-death experience and the continuity of consciousness. Yolaine M. Stout, President, International Association for Near-Death Studies, Inc:"Practicing Conscious Living and Dying" offers a wide range of research that confirms death is only a transition. Even ardent skeptics will be impressed by the excellent firsthand accounts that provide evidence for the continuation of consciousness beyond the death of our physical body. Bill Guggenhiem co-author of Hello From Heaven"Practicing Conscious Living and Dying: Stories of the Eternal Continuum of Consciousness" offers an important and helpful message. For those who have experienced a near-death event, you will be familiar with these stories. For those who have not experienced such an event, the book offers insight and understanding to that space between life and death. It is not a new thing, but a familiar state of being, as if you have experienced it many times before. It is like going home.I am happy to have my story among this unique group. You just have to read it.' Larry Hagman
