Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2011
In #DEATH tweet Book 02: 140 Perspectives on Being a Supportive Witness to the End of Life, Timothy Tosta, a prominent California attorney, uses his experience as a cancer survivor and seasoned hospice volunteer to offer refreshing and encouraging new perspectives on attending to a loved one, friend or colleague at the end of life. This volume follows upon his March 2010 publication of #DEATH tweet Book 01: A Well Lived Life through 140 Perspectives on Death and Its Teachings, in which Tim offers insightful perspectives on how acknowledging our mortality can teach us to fully engage our lives.
“This book is written to relieve suffering. Like its predecessor, #DEATH tweet Book 02 offer perspectives, not truths. I present the readers opportunities to examine long held beliefs, judgments and fears about the end of life to see if their hold can be loosened or released,” said author, Timothy Tosta. “To open the readers’ hearts and minds and to foster their natural caring abilities, I speak to empathy, compassion, kindness, and love,” he continued.
Doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, psychologists, mental health professionals, clergy, hospice workers and caregivers all will find valuable advice on how to discuss death and open people up to death’s teachings.
#DEATH tweet Book 02: 140 Perspectives on Being a Supportive Witness to the End of Life offers healing and inspiration to everyone involved in the end of life process. It offers a rich and heartening view of life’s final transformation.
