Returning to the Arms of the Ancient Mother
We don't really know much about death in a positive sense -- much of what we know, we fear. I wondered why we don't know, and began to wonder if some of the wisdom of our early ancestors could hold a key to informing our experience of how we currently see and embrace death and dying and preparation for death.
I have come to the conclusion that this missing element in our death practices is the same missing element in our life practices -- the absence of the presence of the Divine Feminine consciousness -- the Cosmic or Universal Mother so appreciated and revered by our earliest ancestors.
I wrote this book to offer a new way to deal with death and dying. Click here to read an exerpt from Midwifing Death.

"Leslene della-Madre takes us where we seldom go -- looking into the face of death. And, behold, we find our Mother waiting for us. She shows us how to truly be with ourselves and our loved ones during this profound journey. Her spiritual wisdom, knowledge of our ancient past and deep compassion greets us on every page. And, she awakens us to what has been, and what must happen if our world is to survive." |
