A concise hands-on guide to attending to the needs of the dying. Megory Anderson was called to a vigil at the bedside of a friend who was dying one night. That experience was so powerful that she began working with others who need help attending to those who are dying. Today Anderson is the executive director of the Sacred Dying Foundation in San Francisco, and trains others in the art of "vigiling," a way of attending to the needs of the dying. This practical and concise handbook provides a brief overview of what to expect and how to respond to the needs of someone who is dying. It can be used by and for people of any faith tradition, as well as of no particular faith. Chaplains, social workers, hospital-care workers, and friends or family of the dying will find this a helpful companion for preparing themselves to be present to one of life's most sacred transitions.
