Midwifing Death: Returning to the Arms of the Ancient Mother

Leslene della Madre

Midwifing Death book cover by Leslene della Madre

In recent history death has been viewed as an enemy to be defeated. In Midwifing Death, Leslene della-Madre draws upon ancient wisdom to illuminate a sacred feminine view of death that both honors this experience we all share and allows us to live more fully. This book is truly a gift and guide in opening our eyes and hearts to the presence of Love that walks hand in hand with Death. Thank you for re-framing Death with wisdom, love, compassion and brilliance. Read it, share it and allow it's sacred feminine wisdom into your heart and mind.

This book is a gift! Leslene della-Madre's stories of women and men she has mothered to the other side . . . along with Leslene's impressive scholarship . . . wrapped in an introduction and paintings of signs and images of the dark mother by Monica Sjoo, great mother of the contemporary study of women's spirituality.

Because it rejects the cycle of life and death, violence and the threat of death have become the dominant grammar of international political relations. Patriarchy now threatens the world with terminal illness generated by nuclear weapons of mass destruction. A brilliant combination of scholarship, art, spirituality, and experience, Leslene della-Madre's book powerfully brings us back to ancient ways of honouring divinity both in our lives and deaths. I highly recommend it.

These powerful and very personal stories of death and dying go a long way to take away our fear of this inevitable process, and give us many tools to meet this profound journey with wisdom, compassion, and dignity.
