Based on the Work of Rudolf Steiner – When faced with the prospect of death—our own or someone else’s—there is often little time to prepare. This book presents a wealth of practical and spiritual guidance on all aspects of death and dying. Writing from the perspective of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual philosophy, the authors suggest ways of coping with the time leading up to death and also the period afterwards. They examine different circumstances of death and offer advice on practical questions such as the arrangement of funerals, laying out of the body, legal requirements and wills. They also suggest how those who remain on earth can continue to relate to the departed souls of the deceased.
