Solace: The Wisdom of the Dying (excerpt 2)

SOLACE grew from Camille Adair's intimate experiences with people facing the end of their lives. As a hospice nurse, Camille has worked closely with patients, families, hospitals, cancer treatment centers and many health care professionals to address the needs of dying people as well as the needs of the health care community in being able to integrate the end of ones life as a natural and sacred human process rather than as a medical failure. www.solacethemovie.com

We do not go into the desert to escape

people but to learn how to find them:
we do not leave them in order to have

nothing more to do with them,
but to find out the way
to do them the most good.

Thomas Merton-
