Mindful : April 2019
It may be a truism that death is a part of life—but it’s a part of life that our society keeps out of sight and mind, and the avoidance isn’t healthy. The rise of interest in “death cafés,” public forums to host open discussions about death, is a sign we’re becom- ing more game to acknowl- edge our own mortality. When this happens, says the author, we’ll be able to “change the conversation from something negative to one of understanding, compassion and accep- tance.” Assistant professor of sociology in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Kathy Kor tes-Miller offers this book, enriched by her own experience as well as research, to help us all prepare for and have these important conversations with the soon-dying, their fami- lies, friends, young children, and colleagues. TALKING ABOUT DEATH WON’T KILL YOU The Essential Guide to End-of-Life Conversations Dr. Kathy Kortes-Miller • ECW Press Award-winning music veteran Richard Wolf came to medita- tion (as have many musicians) with the need to maintain his health while staying in the heat of creative challenges. What he discovered, however, was a natural convergence of mindfulness and music, where each practice deep- ened the other. Meant for his fellow musicians at any level, this book offers a plethora of music-based mindfulness exercises for the “transfer- rable virtues” music can culti- vate, from the ar t of deep lis- tening to (here we see Wolf’s technical savvy) “sympathetic vibrations” and silence. The point, says Wolf, isn’t neces- sarily becoming a better musician, but being more in harmony with yourself.
