The TOS is happy to announce the free distribution of a 40-page booklet, Helping the Dying, by Nelda Samarel. Dying often requires assistance, not only for those in transition but also for their families and loved ones. This Guide is intended for those who are helping. It discusses how to meet the dying person's physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs through all phases of the dying process, offering not only an understanding of the experiences of the dying, but also practical suggestions to assist them through their final transition. The booklet contains a list of useful resources for further reading, including ones with theosophical perspectives on death and after.
The booklet can also be downloaded as an Acrobat PDF file and it is available in an e-Book version for which you will need to install a special (free) program. Pease follow this link for further instructions.
Version in Spanish
Maria Rosa Martinez of the TOS in Argentina has kindly translated the booklet into Spanish. Maria Ester Larraza checked the translation. The Spanish edition will be available soon in an electronic form that makes it easier to print out and photocopy. Details will be posted soon on the TOS website.
