The Art of Dying - A Journey to Elsewhere

Peter and Elizabeth Fenwick discuss accounts of the dying and those who have been with the dying in their final hours helping to understand that death is a process which can be prepared for and not feared.


Is there an Art to Dying? And if there is, what can we do to achieve a good death? These accounts by the dying, and those who have been with the dying in their final hours, help us to understand that death is a process for which we can prepare and of which we need not be afraid. The unanimity of the experiences they report suggests that we are looked after throughout the transition from life to death, and taken on a journey into love and light by those we have loved who come back to take us. It is very difficult to find any rational, scientific explanation for these experiences, and almost impossible, in the face of them, to sustain the current scientific view that our consciousness is entirely brain-based, and that it is extinguished at the moment our brain ceases to function. If we listen to what those who have actually experienced it have to tell us, we are cared for throughout the whole process. Death is not a lonely or a fearful journey, but an intensely hopeful one.
