The Introduction starts with early childhood aspirations of being an artist to the author's spiritual understanding of the dying process. The author plants the seed of sensitivity, compassion and creativity at an early age, which blossoms as a young adult to the understanding of the inner makings of a true artist. Then she goes into her spiritual awakening after caring for her mother and the path that lead to Hospice, working with the terminally ill. Bringing the two paths together sets the stage for the book. The spirituality of the dying process is the focus of the book. It is an experiential book and will spiritually support the terminally ill, caregivers, baby boomers with aging parents, health care providers; bereaved loved ones and anyone searching for the meaning in life of death. Each chapter is a story that depicts an ethereal painting of psychic phenomenon, synchronicity, altered states of consciousness and the paranormal. The main characters in the book come from all walks of life as their ages; ethnic backgrounds, gender and race vary. Their stories illustrate to the living what death and dying can teach.
