Synopsis: Dr Karen Wyatt has spent most of her career as a hospice medical doctor, homeless shelter physician and caregiver. In this inspirational book she shares the 7 lessons she has learned from the dying and gives a daily spiritual practice to help live them.
"Dr. Karen Wyatt addresses a long-standing taboo in our youth-obsessed, feel-good society: death and the process of dying." Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words
"This is a highly recommended book for those in the land of the living from those who are no longer with us." Ken Wilber
Karen Wyatt has been privileged to share the final months, weeks, days and moments with many of her patients. This unique experience has given her a profound insight into death and dying. In this book she shares her story and the stories of her patients, providing us with 7 key lessons that the dying can teach us.
Lesson 1: Suffering: Embrace Your Difficulties Lesson 2: Love: Let Your Heart Be Broken Lesson 3: Forgiveness: Hold No Resentments Lesson 4: Presence: Dwell in the Present Moment Lesson 5: Purpose: Manifest Your Highest Potential Lesson 6: Surrender: Let Go of Expectations Lesson 7: Impermanence: Face Your Fear
Each lesson is a wake up call inviting to us to live our lives more fully, with more connection and less regret. With each lesson Karen provides a clear analysis of the importance of that lesson and then goes on to share daily practices on how we can live the teachings as a spiritual practice.
