This is the central teaching in Walking Each Other Home, an intimate dialogue between Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush about loving and dying. Join these two lifelong friends and luminaries for an unabridged audiobook endowed with the wisdom they have gleaned along this path, helping us prepare for the most important spiritual practice there is: dying itself.

We all sit on the edge of a mystery. We have only known this life, so dying scares us—and we are all dying. But what if dying were perfectly safe? What if you could approach dying with curiosity and love? What if dying were the ultimate spiritual practice?

Walking Each Other Home: Conversations on Loving and Dying reunites lifelong friends Ram Dass and Mirabai Bush, who speak on the spiritual opportunities in the dying process. They share intimate personal experiences and timeless practices for every aspect of this journey. In this unabridged audiobook, join these teachers as they explore what it means to live and die consciously, remember who we really are, and illuminate the path we walk together.

Narrated by Mirabai Bush, with a preface read by Ram Dass.
