In his new book, Stephen Levine, author of the perennial best-sellerWho Dies?,teaches us how to live each moment, each hour, each day mindfully--as if it were all that was left. On his deathbed, Socrates exhorted his followers to practice dying as the highest form of wisdom. Levine decided to live this way himself for a whole year, and now he shares with us how such immediacy radically changes our view of the world and forces us to examine our priorities. Most of us go to extraordinary lengths to ignore, laugh off, or deny the fact that we are going to die, but preparing for death is one of the most rational and rewarding acts of a lifetime. It is an exercise that gives us the opportunity to deal with unfinished business and enter into a new and vibrant relationship with life. Levine provides us with a year-long program of intensely practical strategies and powerful guided meditations to help with this work, so that whenever the ultimate moment does arrive for each of us, we will not feel that it has come too soon.

Writer Stephen Levine was born July 17, 1937, in Albany, New York, the child of chemist father Clarence and mother Ruth Levine. In the mid-to-late 1950s Levine attended the University of Miami; shortly thereafter he published his first work, A Resonance of Hope (1959). He then entered the field of journalism, returning to New York City to do editorial work for the Frederick Fell Publishing Company and later contributing to the Rikers Island (N.Y) Review. In 1965, Levine founded the San Francisco Oracle and continued his career in publishing. Stephen Levine has a variety of interests, including poetry reading and wildlife protection. His writing career also focuses on psychology and spirituality. He spent time helping the sick and dying, using meditation as a method of treatment; a program he shared with psychologist Richard Alpert and psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. Levines's wish to help the suffering is perhaps most apparent in his 1990 book, Healers on Healing. Levine and his wife Ondrea created their book, Embracing the Beloved: Relationships as a Path of Awakening in 1994 in an attempt to help the ailing by employing poetry and meditation within families. This work was a culmination of 17 years of work with the dying. Beginning New Year's Eve, 1994, Stephen and Ondrea Levine decided to pretend that each new year was their last. It was their hope that this would help them understand and cherish the beauty of life. Levine's new book, Becoming Kuan Yin: The Evolution of Compassion, was published by Red Wheel Wieser Books in September 2013.
