Audio supplement to the book Rituals for Living and Dyingby David Feinstein, Ph.D., and Peg Elliott Mayo
The fact that we are mortal and know that we are mortal distinguishes us from all other creatures and is the source of our greatest philosophy, our most profound literature, and our most human longings and motivation. To delve deeply into these issues with eyes open and good guidance changes your consciousness forever. It addresses the underlying existential anxiety felt by all people, and it helps us appreciate the sweetness of every breath. Rituals for Living and Dying, also an integrated book and audio tape program, is designed not only for those in grief or facing a life-threatening challenge. It is for anyone ready to dedicate a bit of time for learning from and being expanded by the fact that you are mortal and those you love are mortal as well.
