This book explores one woman's journey to making peace with death’s inevitability. Death, the ultimate transformative process, death, remains shrouded in fear and denial, sapping vital energy from the business of living. As the population ages the concern about death gathers momentum. Interest in death simmers just beneath the surface of our collective denial of aging and dying, and questions break through seeing resolution. This book takes one by the hand and shows the way to move through our fears to find peace.

Varied careers in education, business, as an elected official, a teacher of life skills, an author, and lecturer have filled Dr. Lois West Bristow's last six decades. In 2005, at age 75, Lois returned to the Pacific Graduate Institute to earn a PhD in Depth Psychology and was granted her degree six weeks after her 80th birthday. Dr. Bristow currently writes, lectures, and maintains a small practice as a depth psychologist. Whatever time is left over, she gardens, sculpts, and spends time with her children, grandchildren, and close friends. Dr. Bristow is the mother of three and grandmother of five and lives in a cottage she designed and built in Santa Barbara County, California.
