A must-read for every mortal, The Mortal's Guide to Dying Well brings a new perspective to living well and dying well. Certified End of Life Doula, Cindy Kaufman shares her wisdom gained in her more than 25 years in the field of death and dying. Kaufman highlights the ways our fear-of-death culture hinders our acceptance of the inevitability of our dying, and how this negatively impacts our willingness to talk openly within our families and communities about our wishes for our final days, whenever they may come. Although we humans make plans for everything in our lives, including our education, our careers, and even our vacations, we fail to plan for the one thing that will assuredly affect every one of us at some point. With her practical wisdom, compassion, and encouragement, Kaufman eases us into these realities and guides us forward with her tips and worksheets that assist the reader in formulating a plan for dying well and thus, also, living well.

“We didn’t know how much we needed you until you were here,” my client’s son, Mark, said to me on the day his father, John, died. This validating sentiment has been relayed to me time and again in my work as an End of Life Doula (EOLD). Oddly, it is difficult to describe what I can do and bring to a dying person and their caregivers. Words cannot adequately communicate the emotional and spiritual support an EOLD can provide at the end of life. I describe my work as filling the gap between what Hospice does and what the caregivers provide. Unfortunately, many people are not aware a gap exists; for those that are, most don’t know how to get it filled.
