New Book Out - Mindfully Facing Disease and Death: Compassionate Advice from Early Buddhist TextsPosted by Giulietta - Win... on Mon, 24 October, 2016 - 14:27
We are pleased to announce our new book, Mindfully Facing Disease and Death by Bhikkhu Anālayo. Thank you to our sponsors for enabling the publication of what Roshi Joan Halifax (Abbot of the Upaya Zen Center) calls:
An invaluable and extraordinary resource on the profound teachings by the Buddha on dying, death, and grieving.
With a beautiful cover by Dhammarati, and Foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn, this book provides a practical guide for those facing disease and death by helping them to access the ageless wisdom of the Buddha’s teaching.
We hope our readers benefit.
I believe the Buddha would rejoice in this book and exhort all of us to read it and apply the ‘medicine’ within. This will help to bring about the deepest healing of all – the healing of the mind and the heart – even if we are slipping over the final frontier of death itself. What greater gift could we ever be given? Truly, this is a remarkable and wonderful book. - Vidyamala Burch, author of Living Well with Pain and Illness and co-author of Mindfulness for Women, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Breathworks
