Stephen and ondrea levine books
Who Dies? by Stephen Levine, Ondrea Levine: | iatt-ykp.org: BooksFor over thirty-two years, Stephen and Ondrea Levine have provided emotional and spiritual support for those who face life-threatening illness and for their caregivers. Through their healing and forgiveness workshops, many writings, and compassionate interaction with others, they have deeply touched the lives of people throughout the world. It's a deeply inspiring example of how one faces illness, great personal difficulties, spiritual practice, grace-and the spiritual unfolding from a limited sense of self into the deathless essence of pure Being. The catalyst for sharing Ondrea's story came about as a result of a medical prognosis that foretold the end of a lifetime of spiritual exploration. It was nothing short of grace to be able to write this story in her first person singular.
Embracing the Beloved
Many lives are enriched through his heart, his soul, and his words. As Stephen helped so many others deal with death, may his entry into the clear light of love be easy. Stephen Levine is a poet and teacher of guided meditation healing techniques. He and his wife and spiritual partner, Ondrea, have counseled the dying and their loved ones for more than 30 years. I am the imaginary hero of my hopes lost between verbs that require I know who I am, but I am just a passing thought — yet somehow, somehow — as close to a miracle as we get — the nature of the heart — the Beloved has left the light on for us all night. The sun follows the superstition of blue across the arc of summer and the world comes to an end just the way it began yesterday.
Stephen passed away at home in his bed on January 17th after a long illness. He was 78 years old. His heart has gone to God. His light is left here with us. Thank you for your blessings and love and friendship. We will continue to provide the website and all of the content for free.
An Investigation of Conscious Living and Conscious Dying
Stephen Levine July 17, — January 17, was an American poet, author and teacher best known for his work on death and dying. He is one of a generation of pioneering teachers who, along with Jack Kornfield , Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg , have made the teachings of Theravada Buddhism more widely available to students in the West. Like the writings of his colleague and close friend, Ram Dass formerly Richard Alpert , Stephen's work is also flavoured by the devotional practices and teachings also known as Bhakti Yoga of the Hindu Guru Neem Karoli Baba. This aspect of his teaching may be considered one way in which his work differs from that of the more purely Buddhist oriented teachers named above. Since Buddhism is largely considered a non-theistic faith, his allusions in his teachings to a creator, which he variously terms God, The Beloved, The One and 'Uugghh,' further distinguish his work from that of other contemporary Buddhist writers.
