Elisabeth Kubler-Ross - Speaks to a dying patient, Nova Interview, 1983. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross talks about the 4 quadrants. Kübler-Ross suffered a series of strokes in 1995 which left her partially paralyzed on her left side, and the Shanti Nilaya Healing Center closed around that time. She found living in a wheelchair, slowly waiting for death to come, an unbearable suffering, and wished to be able to determine her time of death. In a 2002 interview with The Arizona Republic, she stated that she was ready for death.

This book introduced the now-famous idea of the five stage s of dealing with death: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance

This book introduced the now-famous idea of the five stage s of dealing with death: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. It gives the reader a better understanding of how imminent death affects the patient, the professionals who serve the patient, and the patient's family.

Elegy for My Uncle by Iven Lourie. CONTACT (With Non-Phenomenal Voyagers). Transition of My Mother by Deborah Judith. This book actually has its roots in the Art of Dying Conferences which were held in New York City back in the mid-1990s. Listening to speakers like Ram Dass, Steven Levine, Joan Halifax and Robert Thurman, my views on death and dying were completely transformed and I saw great hope in the hospice movement. Gold had written the American Book of the Dead which framed these ancient teachings into a western context, and now we were ready to put them to work, out in the field, really helping people to find more conscious death experiences.

Over the last 30 plus years I have occasionally looked for tips or useful information I might need for my departure from this world. What an appropriate title too. I found the book not as difficult as another reviewer since I have previously read Kubler-Ross, Moody, and others including Mr. Gold.

Kubler-Ross and Gold are straight shooters, pull no punches and tell you like it is, which is exactly what you need. This is not a sugar coated fairy/angel book like so many others but an accurate and useful guide book (also the American Book of the Dead).

I figure for The Great Adventure you cannot be too prepared...

I read this book a few years ago, and again picked it up for another look.

First, this is a great introduction to the work and writings of E.J. Gold, which are voluminous and at times a bit challenging to navigate.

In this collection of essays, we get glimpses into a world where life means more than hoarding physical objects and leaving a houseful of them for other people to haul away to the dump when you die. Instead, the invitation is to face the facts of life in a temporary body, and the new adventures that arise from having faced said facts.

Here we encounter semi-famous musician Jimmy Accardi encountering new insights and surprising experiences; we find reports from groups around the world working on themselves to transcend the suffering and ennui of the typical human condition.

There's also a great section about using the Legend of Zelda (yes, the original NES one) and even Diablo 2 as tools for expanding consciousness and enhancing awareness.

The bottom line? I really enjoyed this book.

I definitely laughed out loud at times, and at least once, I was left with tears streaming down my face. It inspired further investigation, which led to further growth in my life.

Get the book, and if you want to explore further, check out other works by E.J. Gold. You can find the rabbit hole at [...]

The Great Adventure is a collection of talks focusing on living and dying as a metaphysical adventure. As the author says: "The lure of organic life seems to be somewhat dissipated by the sobering experience of death." The talks concern topics associated with the American Book of the Dead by E.J. Gold, presenting death as something that can be worked with for the benefit of all. The Great Adventure is an essential read if you're drawn to the enlightening revelations around death and dying, or would like to know more about the American Book of the Dead.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Each and every chapter is an eye opener. I have read Chogyum Trungpa's books and his explanation about Bardo. This book takes that understanding a bit further. Bardo means in-between. Bardo off course is the state after the physical death. But Bardo according to this book exists always. Birth, Life, Death, Post death, In between.

Also the chapter 'The deathbed perspective' and 'Life in Bardos' are truly phenomenal. I have re-read the book and especially 'Life in Bardos' chapter. And the question about 'purpose of game' struck me deeply. I have known and heard about Krishna's perspective that 'Life is a Leela(Play)'. But the real essence behind Krishna's implication of Leela I understood from this book.

"No matter how many times you save Zelda, she will be in trouble next moment."

Gratitude to E.J. Gold.

I am familiar with literature on death and dying, have read Kuebler Ross, Moody and similar ones, but this was my fisrt book from EJ Gold. Some talks like "The Deathbed Perspective" and "The Winnipeg Nine" make it already worthwile to buy the book. However, for the uninitiated the context is not always easy to grasp. The talks refer to exercises and experiences, which mean nothing or very little if one is not familiar with "The school" which is at times referred to. I am quite sure that with a better introduction and background of Gold's teachings, the book would be more valuable. I didn't have this key to unlock the essence of some of the talks. My next purchase will be the American Book of the Dead to look for these clues.
