Hello and a very warm welcome to my web site. Here you can find resources to explore and retrace an ancient path of primordial wisdom that unveils the promise of a deeper sense of purpose and meaning to our fleeting earthly existence.
As human beings, one of the greatest challenges we all face is coming to terms with the devastating death of a loved one. After experiencing a tragic loss in my own family, I was inspired to research the mystery of death and discovered a wealth of invaluable knowledge. My goal then became to write a book that portrays how the darkness of death can provide a torch of illumination for the living.
Conscious Living and Dying is that book and features an uplifting collection of universal spiritual beliefs and powerfully thought-provoking real life stories that portray death to be an integral part of life. The touching observations of closeness to someone in the dying process and personal narratives of near-death experiences, deathbed visions, and after death communication illustrate how coming to terms with the inevitability of death can be a life-affirming experience. I believe you will find these emotionally evocative and moving personal accounts address existential questions and repeat a primordial affirmation of death and rebirth that can expand our limited awareness of the nature of consciousness. They also demonstrate how the individuals concerned have become fully aware of death teaching us that the preciousness of life must be lived with a sense of purpose and as a celebration of our existence.

Since writing Practicing Conscious Living and Dying, I have also published Myths of the Afterlife, and my doctoral dissertation based on The Near-Death Experience: A Mythic Model for Conscious Living and Dying. A further book, Immortal Yearnings, will be published by O-Books later this year. You can view previews and further information on these titles by going to the Preview Books Page.
