Dying well is not a matter of enlightened self-interest or personal preference. Dying well must become an obligation that living people and dying people owe to each other and to those to come. Stephen Jenkinson teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Not a seven step coping strategy, not an out-clause for trauma or sorrow, this teaching is for everyone who, hell or high water, is not going to pull off eternity after all. Dying is not the end of wisdom and wisdom not exhausted by dying. Dying could be and must be the fullest expression and incarnation of what youâve learned by living. Itâs a moral obligation to die well. If you love somebody, if you care about the world thatâs to come after you, if you want somebody to be spared the lunacy of what youâve seen, youâve got to die wise.
