The Art of Dying

Here you will find a collection of resources, books, and a round-up of past articles on conscious dying.  

We live, make our choices/decisions, and live through their reactions and consequences. There are things we have no control over, certain issues with our bodies and their condition.

But we are alive and living each and every day. Then we face the inevitable; we die. Every day we spend from birth, experiences, and choices is art. We are, in a manner of saying, choosing how we will die.
