One of the Greatest 
Mediumship Stories Ever Told

If you've been wondering how to share the subject of mediumship with friends and colleagues who dismiss mediums as charlatans and scammers, this heart-rending story of love, inclusion, life, death and grief has the potential to awaken even the most die-hard skeptics.  

What Does Conscious Dying Look Like? 
This Man Shows us 
How it's Done

Two days before he was scheduled to die, John Shields roused in his hospice bed with an unusual idea. He wanted to organize an Irish wake for himself. It would be old-fashioned with music and booze, except for one notable detail - he would be present.  READ MORE... 

The Beautiful End
 by Christine M. Glaser, MD and Keith R. Lagnese, end MD, FACP, HMDC   

"Although research shows that the majority of Americans prefer to die in their own homes, nearly one-third of all deaths in the United States still occur in a hospital. The volume of inpatient hospital deaths is down 8 percent for the first decade of this millennium, according to the CDC, despite an 11 percent increase in hospital admissions. Interestingly, the percentage of patients older than 65 has decreased, while the percentage of hospital deaths has INCREASED in the 45-64 age range. This latter anomaly could possibly be explained by an increase in hospice use amongst Medicare decedents, as well as more life-prolonging technology available to younger chronically ill hospitalized patients."

A Brilliant End-of-Life Idea! 
Most of us know how valuable it can be to gather with loved ones as end-of-life nears to share memories and record stories for family members and future generations. Scrapbooking, voice recording and videos are wonderful tools for this, but our friend Brant Huddleston has taken those ideas one step further with a brand new invention called the StoryBox.    

It is a easy, high-tech way to take all those old family photographs and create a video life story using your own voice as the narration, without having to scan the photos or record your voice in the traditional way. Click on the image above to see a short video about how it works, and if you take the short survey afterward, Brant will send you a $25 off certificate toward a StoryBox purchase.
