Helping the Dying (English)

The TOS is happy to announce the distribution of a 40-page booklet, Helping the Dying, by Nelda Samarel. 

Dying often requires assistance, not only for those in transition but also for their families and loved ones.  This Guide is intended for those who are helping.  It discusses how to meet the dying person's physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs through all phases of the dying process, offering not only an understanding of the experiences of the dying, but also practical suggestions to assist them through their final transition.  The booklet contains a list of useful resources for further reading, including ones with theosophical perspectives on death and after.

You may order a printed copy by writing to the TOS in the Philippines at -

1 Iba St, Quezon City, 1114 Metro Manila, Philippines   or email 

A donation will be requested to assist with postage if multiple copies are wanted.
