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.
