This review is from: The Soul Midwives' Handbook: The Holistic and Spiritual Care of the Dying (Paperback)
If there's one certainty in life, it's that we're all going to make that final journey. Modern Western culture and education prepare us very poorly for our own departure and for that of our loved ones. Felicity Warner is a pioneer in the holistic care of the dying and we have much to thank her for.

In her first book Felicity introduces us to the fundamentals, the basics of how Soul Midwifing works. This book is much more of a working handbook. There is valuable and fascinating discussion, but it's an eminently practical book. None of the tools or techniques described is indispensable to everybody: Felicity encourages us to play to our strengths. Few if any of her readers will possess her breadth of skill and knowledge or her refined intuitive gifts; but everyone will find things in this book that they can safely use when they want to help.

You can't really compare this book to others, because it's a first of its kind; but it is superbly written, well-structured and organised, and is a mine of precious information. Everyone will find themselves with a loved one who is dying at some point in life, whether privately or as a professional. Everyone, therefore, would benefit from reading this wonderful book.
