The Pagan Book of Living and Dying.

M. Macha Nightmare works deeply and sensitively with death: I'd go so far as to say that this book is essential for the Pagan chaplain.

The Pagan Book of Living and Dying mixes "how-to" suggestions with naked personal experience. Some readers may find those passages too raw and personal, but I appreciate their honesty. Too many "spiritual" writers only present idealized experience without the messiness and fumbles of actual human life; the writers here have avoided that sugarcoated path.
