Overview

Living Fully, Dying Consciously steps into the heart of the human condition to explore why our entire life is a psychological and spiritual preparation for death. Life is not easy, but when we accept that we are just passing through this physical existence it puts things into perspective. Confronting our fear of death and accepting our physical mortality, Sue believes, will contribute to creating a much more conscious way of living. This is our gift to ourselves, to the Earth and to future generations.
