Stephen Levine: Conscious Living, Conscious Dying

May 21, 2021

Genuine healing occurs when we take ourselves mercifully into our open hearts and accept the totality of our lives. The healing of the soul or spirit, says Stephen Levine, is independent of bodily healing. We harden our hearts when we fail to forgive ourselves of our own pain. In this sense, one can only heal one’s self. One can never truly be healed by another.

Conscious living and conscious dying require that we bring our pain into our hearts, rather than wall ourselves off from it. In this moving and personal two-part program, the late Stephen Levine illustrates this point by referring to several cases of dying individuals with whom he has worked.
