Via the Metta Institute…
When is it time to say to a doctor, “Let my loved one go?”
That is the subject of an upcoming Metta Institute teleconference with our friend Katy Butler, Buddhist practitioner, teacher and author of a brilliant new book, “Knocking on Heaven’s Door:The Path to a Better Way of Death”
Like millions of Americans caring for aging parents the award-winning science writer Katy Butler, assumed that her beloved mother and father would meet death on their own terms, free from medical overdoing. She was wrong.
With a poet’s eye, a daughter’s love, and an investigative reporter’s skill, Butler lays bare the wrenching moral choices we face when the ancient reality of death collides with the technological imperatives of modern medicine.
This is a book that is sure to change the national conversation.
