Being with dying : cultivating compassion and fearlessness in the presence of death by Joan Halifax( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Dutch and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zen teacher Joan Halifax has been helping both the dying and their caregivers to face death with courage and compassion for three decades. Here, Joan offers the fruits of her work, providing comfort, inspiration, and practical skills for all those who are in the process of dying or who are charged with a dying person's care. Her teaching, based on Buddhist principles, emphasizes that we have the ability to open up to and rely on our inner strength, and we can help others who are suffering to do the same. Joan offers stories from her personal experience as well as guided exercises and contemplations to help readers meditate on death without fear, develop a commitment to helping others, and transform suffering and resistance into courage.--From publisher description
Shamanic voices : a survey of visionary narratives by Joan Halifax( Book )

46 editions published between 1979 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The shaman is the medicine man or woman, the visionary healer who is the central figure in many tribal cultures-the repository of the group's rituals, myths, and secret lore.

D., has here collected the words of the shamans themselves-some directly from living people, others from hard-to-get primary sources. These eloquent testimonies include harrowing tales of shamanic initiatory experiences; vivid accounts of visionary jouneys; and revealing expressions of the shaman's unique position as the link between the people of his or her tribe with the timeless, ineffable cosmos of which each person-and each culture-is a part. For whether the account is by a Mesoamerican Indian or and African!Kung bushman, whether from Australia, Siberia, or Alaska, there is a remarkable unity to these diverse voices

Faced with the ultimate challenge of life-confronting your death-how would you want to be remembered? Are there stories you want to tell? Experiences you want to relay? Explanations about how you felt and why? Maybe you wish to ensure that future generations know your family lore. Perhaps you seek meaning and purpose and don't know how to access them. It's likely that you seek comfort and strength. But at the same time a deep desire to heal unresolved issues may unsettle you.
