A guidebook for caregivers, friends and family of the dying. It helps to restore a sense of the 'art' or 'science of dying' which has been missing from Western culture for too long. Based on the study of Tibetan Buddhism, it covers how to face death, how to find hope in death instead of only tragedy, how to help others at the end of their lives, and how to die well ourselves.
