Overview
For those who choose to serve as close companions of terminally ill relatives or friends, "Parting" offers the collective wisdom of people from many cultures and faith traditions as a "travel guide" for meaningful companionship--helping someone toward a peaceful transition from this life.

Publishers Description
At times we may be called to be companions on a journey we would rather not take--the journey of a loved one toward the end of life. For those who choose to serve as close companions of terminally ill relatives or friends, "Parting" offers the collective wisdom of people from many cultures and faith traditions as a "travel guide" for meaningful companionship--helping someone toward a peaceful transition from this life. Sections of the book discuss how to cross the bridge from ordinary conversation to spiritual reflection; how to provide comforts for the body, mind, and soul; and how to care for yourself while concentrating on the needs of another. Transcending any specific religion or culture, this handbook addresses universal spiritual needs.
Designed for easy reading by weary travelers, this practical, pocket-sized guide prepares the spiritual companion for an enriching experience, even on the journey toward life's end. It is an indispensable tool for family members and friends, hospice workers, religious leaders, counselors, and medical providers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Parting: A Handbook for Spiritual Care Near the End of Life?

Preparing for the journey  Jul 4, 2004
I assisted my Mother through her hospice experience in 1999 and am preparing for a ministry that will focus on the end-of-life journey.

I found this book to be excellent in how it assists anyone in the dying person's life (friend, family member, chaplain, volunteer or professional caregiver) to companion with the person in ways that will enrich his or her last days here (life on earth) and prepare him or her for the journey to the beyond.
