  • Description or summary of the book: What makes for a good death? In Mortally Wounded, a best-seller in Ireland where it was first published, Dr. Michael Kearney reflects upon his experiences working with the dying and shows us that is possible to learn to die well, overcoming our fears and soul pain and accepting death as an integral part of life. Believing that the root of the pain we face when dying is often a personal and cultural disconnection from soul, Dr. Kearney advocates a personal quest inward-and downward-to re-engage with this deepest part of our being. He shows how psychological techniques, such as dream analysis and visualization exercises, combined with mythological insights, can help us on this journey. He finds in the Greek myth of the wounded centaur, Chiron, a metaphor for this process - it is only after descending to the underworld for nine days and nights that Chiron finds relief from his pain and suffering and discovers a path that reaches to the heavens. Careful attention to spiritual health, Kearney urges, is an essential complement to physical or outer care. Inner or 'depth' work can, he believes, enables us to find our 'own way through the prison of soul pain to a place of greater wholeness, a new depth of living, and a falling away of fear.'
