Light on Death by Philip Jones

Book Description

All of us die, and most of us are called upon to support loved ones or friends in dying or in grieving a death. We wonder about the nature of this universal phenomenon. Is dying only an uninvited tragedy or can it also be seen as a sacred passage? Can one's end of life journey be a time of completion and even growth? Light on Death views life as a pilgrimage culminating in the Great Transition at death. Drawing on Eastern insights from the ancient sages of India as well as modern hospice experiences, the author explores a spiritual art of dying in which death is the last and most powerful rite of passage.

Books By Author Philip Jones

Behind the Doors by Philip Jones Behind the Doors, Paperback (March 2014)

The Yuendumu Doors are among the freshest, most remarkable documents of Aboriginal art. Painted 30 years ago at a remote desert school by artists steeped in ritual knowledge, the Doors survived against the odds. After near-obliteration by desert winds, sun, and children's graffiti, the Doors have been conserved and their powerful designs restored.

Public Finance and Public Choice by Philip Jones Public Finance and Public Choice, Paperback (July 2009)

Public Finance and Public Choice provides a comprehensive analysis of the economics of the public sector, taking a diagrammatic approach to the subject. Particular emphasis is given to the public choice and behavioural economics schools of thought.

Ochre and Rust by Philip Jones Ochre and Rust, Hardback (March 2007)

Ochre and Rust takes nine Aboriginal and colonial artefacts from their museum shelves, and positions them at the centre of these gripping, poignant tales set in the heart of Australia's frontier zone.

Boomerang by Philip Jones Boomerang, Paperback (September 2004)

From Aboriginal history to kitschy souvenirs to the shelves of your local sports store, boomerangs have a fascinating place in history and popular culture. Author Philip Jones draws on the world's largest boomerang collection at the South Australian Museum to describe the boomerang's traditional uses and its more recent flight into western culture.
