After the tragic death of her father, Dr Wyatt was called to spend 25 years working as a hospice medial director, caring for the terminally ill. Although we perhaps imagine that such a job would be nothing but depressing, she discovered it to be a spiritually life-affirming experience, as she encountered the profound power and wisdom of her patients. Understanding that those who are soon to pass away are those who perhaps are most alive, she quickly came to realize how much we can learn from their experiences and stories. Including teachings from great ancient sages and mystical poets, Wyatt presents us with lessons on how to accept our mortality and live life to the fullest – which is perhaps more needed than ever during these troubling times.
