Journeying East : Conversations of Aging and Dying
by Victoria Dimidjian
I saw a reference to it on the growthhouse site and it looks really interesting.

Yes, I've read it. Written by an old, and I mean "old" coot somewhere in
the desert of New Mexico with too much time on his hands and trying
to peddle his wares. LOL!
Actually I read this mini-book/maxi-article a few years ago when I first got into
hospice and it was an excellent resource and I would recommend it highly;
covers all aspects of the dying process; excellent resource for caregivers also!
I have given the website info to numerous coworkers and caregivers.
I would like to see Mr. Holmes write a book that includes all his teachings,
wisdom, and experiences under one cover and have published and available in
bookstores for a reasonable price. Hint-Hint!

I haven't seen that one.
How about "Crossing The Cree... A Practical Guide To Understanding Dying Process," written by a nnurse.
Has anyone read it?
yes, i've read the 3 books he wrote.
i could relate to many of his experiences, and agreed with his personal findings.
"final gifts" was another outstanding book; easy to read and eloquent writing.
furthermore, michael holmes, maggie callanan/patricia kelley have very similiar experiences, further vindicating the spiritual elements in dying.
aimee, i will try and find some feedback....
eta: whoops! i see this post is dated to 2005. nevermind aimee.
