The Final Crossing
about the Final Crossing
I have worked as a physician specializing in the care of the dying for over 30 years, and as a wilderness guide for nearly 20 years. These two endeavors came together as one in the writing of my book The Final Crossing: Learning to Die in Order to Life. Central to all three - the hospice work, the wilderness guiding, and this book - is a centuries-old Mayan wisdom about how to die well.
