"In this dear book, Michael yet again takes us deeper, closer. He nudges us to see that to understand someone is to care for them. Yes, love them. This book is most directly about the cautions and craft of caregiving. And it is about receiving too, as though by necessity these come together. This is the sweet reciprocal loop that Michael has been pointing out to me for many years now and I'm so glad he's offered us more stories and intimacies to reify this subtly potent point. For all its quietness, this book is full of brave explorations just beyond the line of familiarity. And since he dares to look and see--we can too." --B.J. Miller MD, Zen Hospice Project, presenter of 2015 TED talk, What Really Matters at The End of Life

"Dr. Michael Kearney has shared with us a profound contemplation, heartfelt and moving, of the healing process in life and at death. Weaving Buddhist and other traditions we accompany him on the journey from letting go to moving on with meaning and grace." --David Richo, PhD, MFT, author of The Power of Grace
