Dear friends, family and colleagues,
The “official” release of my newest book is Friday September 8, 2017. If you are in Northern California or traveling in, I want to extend a heartfelt personal invitation to my Embracing the End of Life Book Release and Signing Celebration. The celebration will be held from 5:30-7:00pm at Esterly Hall, 336 Crown Point Circle in Grass Valley. The public is invited. I will speak and demonstrate practices from the book.
This book is a work of love born out of my own personal experience of confronting death. Researching our culture’s approach to death and dying and moving beyond my own fears is, and has been, an awakening process for me. My deepest hope is that Embracing the End of Life, A Journey into Dying and Awakening will support you and your loved ones in redefining your relationship with death and dying such that you too experience the freedom to live this life more fully now.
Let me share what others are saying:
“Patt Lind-Kyle’s book, Embracing the End of Life, is perhaps the most important book about death and dying present today. It provides a map of the emotional, spiritual and pragmatic issues that can help us normalize this most important passage so that we can live our lives with more emotional intelligence, kindness, awareness and love.” ~ Gary Malkin, Seven-time Emmy award-winning Composer and Co-author of Graceful Passages: A Companion for Living and Dying, and Founder of WisdomoftheWorld.com.
Grass Valley’s own Rev. Jerry Farrell, Unity Minister and former Hospice Chaplain says:
“Patt Lind-Kyle gently takes our hand and walks us consciously through the death and dying process. In doing so she is a handmaiden to help us discover our true Self, and we learn that we are already the light into which we continue our journey.”
From the Foreword by Karen Wyatt
Embracing the End of Life offers a beautiful gift for those who follow its recommended exercises: the opportunity to become enlightened about death long before this wisdom is needed. Transcending the fear of death in this way allows much more room for creativity, joy, and the freedom to finally live in a fully awakened state. Patt Lind-Kyle writes, “Death is one of the most precious experiences you will ever have in this life.” It turns out, her book informs us, that death is actually the key to life—and there is no more important lesson for us to learn.
As a guidebook for the journey from birth to death, Embracing the End of Life serves as a wise companion for those who dare to live deeply into the mysteries of life and death, with eyes wide open and mind fully centered in the present moment. This innovative and comprehensive book has the power to change the perception of death for the individual reader and for society as a whole as we confront the most fundamental question of our humanity: “How do we live while knowing we will die?” Read this book now to transform how you live for the rest of your days, and then keep it on your bookshelf as a resource to consult over and over again on your own “journey into dying and awakening.” — Karen Wyatt, MD, author of What Really Matters: 7 Lessons for Living from the Stories of the Dying
