Dying to Wake Up

A Doctor's Voyage into the Afterlife and the Wisdom He Brought Back

Dying to Wake Up

Dr Rajiv Parti was the last man to believe in heaven or hell – until he saw them with his own eyes. Dr Parti was a wealthy man of science with a successful career as the Chief of Anesthesiology at the Bakersfield Heart Hospital in California. He demanded the same success from his son, whose failures provoked episodes of physical abuse from Dr Parti. However, his fate was overturned in 2005, when he was diagnosed with cancer. During his seventh operation against the disease, dying from sepsis with a 105 degree fever, Dr Parti left his body and watched his own operation from the ceiling. What followed was a profound near-death experience, in which Dr Parti was met by archangels and his deceased father, who led him to witness both heaven and hell. From the angels, he learned lessons of spiritual health that they insisted he bring down to earth – to do so, Dr Parti knew he had to change his ways. After his near-death experience, Dr Parti awoke a new man. He gave away his mansion, quit his career, opened a wellness clinic and completely turned around his relationships with his family. In this remarkable true story of spiritual transformation, Dr Parti provides rare details of heaven, hell, the afterlife and angels. In sharing the lessons and eternal truths from the Divine that changed him forever, Dr Parti offers his audience the opportunity to attain peace and live a better life here on Earth.

Dying to Know

Dying to Know

Dying is overrated. Murder is not. Detective Oliver Tucker prefers to be the guy investigating shootings, not the guy getting shot. So when he returns as a ghost after being murdered in his home, it’s only natural for Tuck to investigate the most important case of his life—his own. Detective, solve thyself! Piecing together cold cases, foggy memories, and eerie premonitions, Tuck fears that if he doesn’t figure out who pulled the trigger, his wife may be the next victim. Surprised to discover many earth-bound spirits chasing the same killer, Tuck’s unique perspective from the other side leads him to a chilling conclusion—it’s the living, not the dead, who are most terrifying. Praise: “TJ O’Connor has a smash hit with his debut novel Dying to Know . . . I couldn’t stop reading.”—Stephen Frey, New York Times bestselling author

Die Wise

A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul

Die Wise

Die Wise does not offer seven steps for coping with death. It does not suggest ways to make dying easier. It pours no honey to make the medicine go down. Instead, with lyrical prose, deep wisdom, and stories from his two decades of working with dying people and their families, Stephen Jenkinson places death at the center of the page and asks us to behold it in all its painful beauty. Die Wise teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Die Wise is for those who will fail to live forever. Dying well, Jenkinson writes, is a right and responsibility of everyone. It is not a lifestyle option. It is a moral, political, and spiritual obligation each person owes their ancestors and their heirs. Die Wise dreams such a dream, and plots such an uprising. How we die, how we care for dying people, and how we carry our dead: this work makes our capacity for a village-mindedness, or breaks it.
