Too often we neglect the end of life in our desire to celebrate its joys. This book is probably the best Pagan resource I have seen for dealing with death and grief with a Pagan spiritual perspective. If you are going to initiate past the first degree or teach others in the Craft, sooner or later you will be called upon to council someone in pain and grief. This is a wonderful guide on how to do that. Even if you don’t choose to use the rituals provided because your tradition differs, this will give you a place to start.
