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

No yearning for an afterlife,
no looking beyond,
no belittling of death,
but only longing for what belongs to us
and serving earth, lest we remain unused.

Ranier Maria Rilke
