This video offering emerges from the January, 1986 conference, Exploring the Heart of Healing in AIDS. What transpired between Stephen, Ram Dass and those present did not involve many of the specifics we've heard so often about AIDS. What evolved was an exploration of our healing into life within the context of our experience with dying. Whether you are a caregiver, loved one, quiet participant or approaching your own death, the message of this film is that work on oneself is where the heart of healing lies. This collaborative endeavor addresses itself to the many aspects of the dying process with insight , candor, and lightness. In that same gentle spirit, we invite you to explore the physical, psychosocial, spiritual and symbolic potentials in life-threatening illness and AIDS with us.
