My Books – M. Macha NightMare, Priestess & WitchGrowing from the smaller, self-published Reclaiming book, Crossing Over, The Pagan Book of Living and Dying is a compendium of information on coping with death and dying. It provides valuable and compassionate guidance for dealing with such varying situations as deaths of small children, of parents, and deaths in battle or by violence. I wish I had it several months ago when my father died. I love the simple and elegant writing, and the way death is described in relationship to the cycles of the natural world. I found the book enormously comforting, and even suitable to lend my very non-Pagan stepmother as she goes through her own grieving process. I thought the information about making wills and what to sort out before you die was excellent. It would be great if we had something similar in the UK that met UK legal requirements and was readily accessible.

View Larger Image. Ask Seller a Question. Birth,growth,death,and rebirth are a cycle that forms the underlying order of the universe. The Pagan Book of Living and Dying is the pagan omnibus on death, much more than just a history of various cultural rituals and beliefs regarding death. This collection of essays, prayers, and songs is a living document that draws on the resources of today's entire pagan community and fills the void left by ancient sacramental rites lost over the centuries. Designed in such a way as to benefit both the leaders of the pagan community as well as the individual reader, The Pagan Book of Living and Dying encourages preparation under the obvious, but often neglected, understanding that death is seldom expected nor convenient but happens to everyone. The Pagan Book of Living and Dying discusses all aspects of death, from pagan thealogy from thea meaning goddess, rather than theo meaning god to the dying process itself, and it even covers sensitive subjects like helping children cope with death.
