"Death: A paradigm shift.
Carole Travis-Henikoff has done it again! In her previous work, Dinner With A Cannibal, Carole graciously invites
us to take a brave look at our dark side....no easy task. Yet, for those of us who managed to stick with it, there was
redemption from shame and a deeper understanding of ourselves. Only after this difficult journey can we begin the evolutionary
ascension from our finite animal nature to our infinite potential. NOW, Henikoff, once again, manages to get us through
yet another cultural taboo...Death. In her new book, Passings: Death, Dying, and Unexplained Phenomena, she takes
us further through this 'dark night of the soul' and into the 'light at the end of the tunnel'. With riveting personal
stories and intelligent exploration, she leads us to question our cultural and scientific views CONCERNING death.
This is a book about hope written by one who has touched the bottom of the abyss only to rise up, torch in hand, to illuminate
the path for the rest of us. Paradoxically delightful, this book is not about death... it's about Life!"
"An excellent resource for those of us working in hospice."
