This book should be listened to (CD included with book), but having the poetry included is a bonus. The music is beautiful, but so are the words. There is also a CD available separately: "Unspeakable Grace: The Music of Graceful Passages" which would be comforting to play in a hospice room.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 157731428X, Hardcover)

In words and music, Graceful Passages provides an atmosphere of relaxation, fresh insight, and a renewal of faith for anyone exploring the challenge of dealing with grief from the loss of a loved one. Cofounders of the Companion Arts Foundation, the authors have gathered Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Native American, Confucian, and Buddhist sages to create a truly broad-ranging multifaith resource. From many perspectives the themes of letting go, closure, expressing love, forgiveness, appreciation of life, and the continuity of spirit are reviewed. We hear the words and voices of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Thich Nhat Hanh, Ram Dass, Arun and Suranda Gandhi, Sam Keen, Dr. Ira Byock, Kathleen Dowling Singh, and others. A customized musical score composed by an award-winning composer and pioneering healing music artist, stunning still-life color photographs, and a handsome design make this set a gift to treasure in both good times and bad.
