From Library Journal
Levine, formerly a colleague of Ram Dass and Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, has worked for almost 20 years with terminally ill people. His meditations, from a Buddhist perspective, touch universal human issues in profound ways that will appeal to people of various religious commitments. More than anything else, he calls his readers to deeper consciousness, more awareness (including awareness of "negative" emotions and of everyday actions, such as eating), and greater compassion and loving kindness both for themselves and for others. This book will be especially useful to those facing chronic pain, addiction, and life-threatening illness or im pending death. Highly recommended for public and seminary libraries.
