Nearing Death Awareness

A Guide to the Language, Visions, and Dreams of the Dying

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

“Nearing Death Awareness: A Guide to the Language, Visions and Dreams of the Dying is an anthology covering the different aspects of, and sometimes names given to the concept of nearing death awareness. The author, Mary Anne Sanders, describes different types of nearing death awareness (NDA), including visions, dreams and symbolic language, and offers practical guidance for family and carers of the dying about how to respond appropriately and supportively to NDA behaviour. It aims to appeal to anyone who is likely to accompany a dying person or with an interest in spirituality.” - Working with Older People

“This book is a sensitive and perceptive introduction to a new model of death as transition suggested by nearing death awareness as well as near death experience.” - Network Review

“”This book is useful for those faced with the death of a loved one, for those faced with a terminal illness as well as their carers and health care professionals.” - The Christian Parapsychologist, September 2007

“In Nearing Death Awareness, Mary Anne Sanders has provided a well thought out anthology covering the different aspects of, and sometimes names given to, the concept of Nearing Death Awareness. This book should provide clear, concise information and comfort to those who read it.” - Maggie Callanan, co-author of Final Gifts
