Death the Door Music a Key

Death the Door, Music a Key is an invitation to join a journey that is not always easy, but might just alter the way you think about how you live your life. The journey begins in the fragile moments just before life ends, as we sit beside the deathbed and seek to understand this sacred process through the eyes of a harpist. This book of stories tells of ordinary people in the midst of extraordinary moments: people experiencing grief, loss and the anticipation of death. For the most part, however, it is the story of the author, who followed a calling to sit with the dying and share her music. It paints a picture of the work that I do as a harpist who plays intuitive music at the bedside, the restorative qualities of the harp, and the gift that it brings many. It is my hope that through telling these stories, not only will the lives of those who I have played for be honoured, but also their death. It is my hope that their story will serve as a reminder to others that this experience does not have to be frightening, though it requires acceptance, and acceptance requires courage.This acceptance of death can be rarely found, and when it is, it is unmistakable, for their peace seems to permeate everything and everyone around them.

The academic study of death rose to prominence during the 1960s. Courses on some aspect of death and dying can now be found at most institutions of higher learning. These courses tend to stress the psycho-social aspects of grief and bereavement, however, ignoring the religious elements inherent to the subject. This collection is the first to address the teaching of courses on death and dying from a religious-studies perspective.

Paul is stunned when his foster son Herman tells him about the awfully devastating news concerning his gay hooker friend Jonathan, who was found dead with his head lying in a pool of orange liquid. Four bizarre physiological phenomena, each lasting four days, preceded his death. Paul's research discovers two other gay teenage male hookers who died under similar circumstances as Jonathan, and all three dead teenagers had four letters tattooed on their chests. They were all sixteen years old. The clues to the decoding of the tattooed letters are revealed in Paul's dreams, and are connected to a cave, which boasts a huge water hole with the promise of treasure, where Paul played with his childhood friend Leon, and to an army Barracks where grotesque experiments where carried out by an army psychologist to try and change the sexual orientation of homosexuals. A priest with a secret past, a woman who communicates with the dead, a ritual involving a corpse and a special seed taken from Jonathan's corpse plunges Paul into a struggle against time and evil to try and save Herman from being trapped in an irreversible curse which could destroy his life forever.

The section on practices addresses approaches to counseling and providing support for individuals, families, and communities on issues related to dying, bereavement, suicide, trauma, disaster, and caregiving. An Afterword identifies challenges and looks toward future developments that promise to sustain, further enrich, and strengthen the movement.

What is a hotel? As Caroline Field Levander and Matthew Pratt Guterl show us in this thought-provoking book, even though hotels are everywhere around us, we rarely consider their essential role in our modern existence and how they help frame our sense of who and what we are. They are, in fact, as centrally important as other powerful places like prisons, hospitals, or universities. More than simply structures made of steel, concrete, and glass, hotels are social and political institutions that we invest with overlapping and contradictory meaning. These alluring places uniquely capture the realities of our world, where the lines between public and private, labor and leisure, fortune and failure, desire and despair are regularly blurred. Guiding readers through the story of hotels as places of troublesome possibility, as mazelike physical buildings, as inspirational touchstones for art and literature, and as unsettling, even disturbing, backdrops for the drama of everyday life, Levander and Guterl ensure that we will never think about this seemingly ordinary place in the same way again.

Death, Dying, and the Time Traveler is a collection of short stories. These stories are told by the Time Traveler, who is sent to Earth from another universe. The Time Traveler was genetically created to be Caucasian. As he grows up, his makeup has gradually changed and he has become a man of color. When Madonna, the commander-in-chief of the high council of Alexis, the planet that sent the Time Traveler to Earth, returns years later and transports the Time Traveler aboard his space vessel, he is baffled by these unbelievable stories. During his journey through life on Earth, the Time Traveler was always confronted with death and dying. He has experienced the depths of human sufferance, and there are no great stories of glory to be told. The Time Traveler questions man's existence on Earth and explores three temptations that have led to his failure here. Madonna and his council must decide the fate of the Time Traveler. Will he return to Earth and fulfill his destiny or return to Alexis with Madonna? These are the Time Traveler's thrilling stories of the past, chilling stories of the present, and shocking stories of the future.
