"This book is far more than a guide to the process of dying; it is also a guide to living. We are reminded, gently and with compassion, that that death is not an end but a more of a 'change of address.'
"The Shamanic Guide is filled with useful meditations on such things as how to contact someone who has died, how to access information about your past lives, and how to cope with grief in a society that is consistently at a loss when confronted with negative emotions. There is clear, practical information about how to prepare for your own death." -- Facing North

Originally published in 1999, Kristin revised and expanded this book to a whopping 324 pages of rituals, meditations, and absolutely wonderful stories from her own experiences. Touching and beautiful.
If there was ever a confirmation for me that this book was meant to be re-published, it happened this past summer. I'd led a rather unique healing and protection ceremony for the land at a farm two hours' drive away. I shared a ride over with a very sweet couple whom I'd just met and who run a "green" cemetery.
On the way home, they talked of the unusual encounters we had that night with the Other Side and how these encounters related to a book they'd read several years ago. The book was so treasured that they kept a copy from its first printing, now dog-eared and well-read. The name of the book? THE SHAMANIC GUIDE TO DEATH AND DYING by Kristin Madden, no longer in print and hard to find, even for $90 or more for a used copy. Between my experiences that night and this couple's recommendation that I hunt down a copy of the book--if I could--I knew it was time for this book to make its re-appearance.
And now it's available on Amazon, brand new! It's become the subject of much discussion with the seniors in my family, and is paving the way to talk about their own passing in a constructive, positive manner. Thank you, Kristin!
