Sitting With Death: Buddhist Insights to Help You Face Your Fears and Live a Peaceful Life

by Margaret Meloni (Author)

Margaret Meloni invites the reader into a conversation with twelve Buddhist meditation teachers on the many faces of death. She intermingles passages from Buddhist scripture with insights from experienced contemplative practitioners, active in the field of death and dying. It was refreshing to hear not only these teachers’ wisdom offerings, but their personal stories as well. This gives her book an approachable, deeply human and intimate quality. Sitting with Death is filled with practical advice on the many challenges of facing death or working with the dying. – Judith L Lief, author of Making Friends with Death: A Buddhist Guide to Encountering Mortality.

Sitting With Death: Buddhist Insights to Help You Face Your Fears and Live a Peaceful Life

Description

With her big heart of compassion, cracked open by the deaths of her husband, father and mother, Margaret encourages us to use death as a life coach. I’m touched by her unfailing commitment to kind understanding and love in the face of our ultimate destiny. —Trudy Goodman, PhD, Founder, InsightLA

 

What is dealing with death like for others? Specifically, what is this like for other Buddhists? Do Buddhist spiritual teachers have the magic no suffering wand?

These questions began Margaret Meloni’s quest to seek out Buddhist spiritual teachers to discuss death after her own experience with loss. Twelve wonderful wise teachers answered her call and, in doing so, they also reached out to you and answered your questions on the following topics:

  • Loss of a Parent
  • Loss of a Spouse
  • Meditation and Grief
  • Overcoming Regret
  • How to Help Others Through Grief
  • Love and Attachment
  • How to Accept Sadness and Joy
  • How to Get Beyond Fear and Anxiety

This book will help you use Buddhist teachings to include death in your own spiritual practice. In bringing curiosity and an open heart, you can train for the death of your loved ones and, as a result, you will live more fully, with more compassion for others, and more peace for yourself.
