If you only had a year to live, what would you do? In his work with the dying, author Stephen Levine observed the radical changes people can make in the face of death. Levine challenged himself to live an entire year as if it were his last - and in this revealing narrative he shares what he learned.
"Thought provoking and useful"
Twenty years ago, two spiritual seekers met at a workshop about conscious dying. What happened next is the extraordinary foundation for To Love and Be Loved - a life-changing program about what it means to be alive and in love. Together ever since that first day, Stephen and Ondrea Levine poured all of the wisdom, compassion, and courage they gained from their work with the suffering and grief stricken into the mystery of their own relationship.
For over 20 years, Stephen and Ondrea Levine have supported thousands of people caught in the aftermath of grief and loss, including many women deeply hurt by sexual trauma. Now on Opening the Heart of the Womb, Stephen Levine addresses this hidden heartache, offering a gentle 3-part meditation that is so effective it made the original Womb Meditation tape an underground best seller by word of mouth alone.
In the present, within the sacred emptiness, is the deathless state sought by spiritual masters and their students. Exploring Sacred Emptiness gives us a window to this condition without boundaries, through the words of Stephen Levine. With moving eloquence, he speaks about the letting go of suffering in order to experience unencumbered awareness: the essential "am-ness" of being. Levine's words allow us to experience his vision, to close the space that separates us from God.
The happiest people, Stephen Levine says, are those who have fully investigated their fears. But what is fear? And how is it related to grief, anger, and pain? In In the Heart Lies the Deathless, Levine addresses these questions with clear relevance to everyone on the spiritual path. Within each of our hearts, he begins, there is a sacred emptiness that we share with the divine spirit and with all life. The qualities of this space are love, kindness, and mercy.
