Presentatcion del documental ‘Griefwalker‘ y lectura del libro ‘Meure Sabio
El nuevo libro de Stephen Jenkinson trata sobre el duelo, el morir y el gran amor por la vida. MUERE SABIO no ofrece los siete pasos para hacer frente a la muerte.
No sugiere maneras para hacer de la muerte algo más fácil. No endulza lo amargo para poderlo tragar. Por el contrario, con una prosa lírica, profundo saber e historias basadas en dos décadas de su trabajo con personas muriendo y sus familias, Stephen coloca la muerte en el centro de la página y nos pide regocijarnos ante su dolorosa belleza.
MUERE SABIO nos enseña habilidades para morir que debemos de aprender en el transcurso de la vida, de una manera profunda y buena.
Este libro es para aquellos que fallarán en vivir por siempre.

Die Wise
does not offer seven steps for coping with death. It does not suggest ways to make dying easier. It pours no honey to make the medicine go down. Instead, with lyrical prose, deep wisdom, and stories from his two decades of working with dying people and their families, Stephen Jenkinson places death at the center of the page and asks us to behold it in all its painful beauty. Die Wise teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Die Wise is for those who will fail to live forever.
Dying well, Jenkinson writes, is a right and responsibility of everyone. It is a moral, political, and spiritual obligation each person owes their ancestors and their heirs. It is not a lifestyle option. It is a birthright and a debt. Die Wise dreams such a dream, and plots such an uprising. How we die, how we care for dying people, and how we carry our dead: this work makes our village life, or breaks it.
