- The Christian Parapsychologist, September 2007

`In Nearing Death Awareness, Mary Anne Sanders has provided a well thought out anthology covering the different aspects of, and sometimes names given to, the concept of Nearing Death Awareness. This book should provide clear, concise information and comfort to those who read it.'

- Maggie Callanan, co-author of Final Gifts

Dying is a complex experience for the dying person and their family, friends, and carers, that involves all aspects of what it means to be human: physical, mental, and spiritual. The author describes different types of Nearing Death Awareness (NDA), including visions, dreams, and symbolic language, and offers practical guidance for family and carers of the dying about how to respond appropriately and supportively to NDA behavior.

This sensitive and informative book will make fascinating reading not only for anyone who is likely to accompany a dying person, but for anyone with an interest in spirituality.

Reviews

'Sanders describes different types of Nearing Death Awareness (NDA) such as deathbed visiions, pre-death dreams, and symbolic language, guiding family members and caregivers of the dying on how to respond. She discusses how NDA is a potential means for spiritual growth for those facing death and their families, friends, and caregivers, with an aim for readers to gain an "enhanced sense of personal spirituality"and a greater view of existence beyond reality'.'
