Sacred Gifts of a Short Life shares the true stories (though names have been changed) of the end of life journeys of several of Dr. Liz Fernandez's patients. The stories offer insights into navigating end of life issues including the age old question of "is it time?" Dr. Liz inspires and reassures us that we are each capable of allowing love to guide us as we make these difficult decisions.
Each story offers insights into how loss and death can be viewed from a perspective that is more inclusive and grounded in Presence and reality. One that acknowledges the heart wrenching sadness and pain we feel and the less acknowledged sacredness, peacefulness, and amazing sense of intimacy that is simultaneously present in the midst of this pain. These journeys reveal a deeper truth... when love is present, our hearts do not just break, but break open and allow us access to love as this ever present eternal formlessness.
