Present Through the End: A Caring Companion's Guide for Accompanying the Dying
by Kirsten DeLeo

“Kirsten DeLeo has distilled timeless wisdom into a clear, accessible, and thoroughly helpful book. Rather than explain what to say or do, DeLeo shows us how to be with people who are approaching life’s end. Her guidance is simple, practical, and profound: Show up. Arrive with love—for yourself and the person you are visiting. Lean forward. Listen. Remember to breathe.”—Ira Byock, MD, author of Dying Well and The Best Care Possible

“Kirsten DeLeo invites us to be daring and sit with our own discomfort as we hold space and accompany the dying. DeLeo shares her wisdom with warmth and respect. A must-have guidebook that is thoughtful, accessible, and offers practical tools for caring companions.”—Cheryl A. Giles, co-editor of The Arts of Contemplative Care

This helpful and encouraging resource offers support for everyone accompanying someone at the end of life—from the mo­ment we first learn that someone is dying through the time of death and beyond. Kirsten DeLeo shares down-to-earth advice and offers simple practices to help us handle our emotions, deal with difficult relation­ships, talk about what matters, listen fully, practice self-care, and work through challenging situations with presence and grace.

Kirsten DeLeo is an international trainer with the Spiritual Care Program. She has been teaching in the field of contemplative caregiving for more than twenty-five years, is a counselor, and has been immersed in Buddhist practice for over twenty years.
