Today we interview Kelley Jankowski, author of An Army in Heaven. As a Hospice Nurse, Kelly has deep experience and perspective with death and dying. Her mission is providing dignified and caring assistance to those transitioning into death. We discuss the contrasts between the modern process of birth and death taking place in a hospital versus the home, which was more common in the past. We also speak of the empowering positive transformative nature of devoted care for another, and many other topics.
From An Army in Heaven description on Amazon:
What do people see as death approaches? What will Heaven be like? What will Hell be like? An Army In Heaven records the deathbed visions of hospice patients, as well as those in a critical care setting who have died and then returned to describe their experience on the other side. Read about their accounts of Heaven and Hell, their visions of loved ones who have long traversed to the other side. Compassionate and compelling, this book retells their experiences. Their accounts are moving, edifying and sometimes disturbing, as cases of terrible abuse, neglect and even the demonic are also witnessed. Written by the nurse assigned to their care, An Army In Heaven is a compilation of their stories, what they saw on the other side and what they see as the veil thins during the dying process. It will change how you view life and most importantly, how you view death.

Clare F. Halford walked away from a demanding career as an ER doctor to fulfill her lifelong desire to become an artist, writer and healer. She shares with us the events leading up to her courageous decision to follow her bliss toward creating a more passionate and authentic life for herself and her family. On a more mystical note, learn how ayahuasca, the “spirit vine”, helped her along on her spectacular journey.
Since leaving her successful career in the world of conventional medicine, and no longer content with the limitations of medical practice, she has emerged as a Soul Doctor – someone who can see deeply into people and catalyze their personal journey of healing and transformation. Clare is the creator of Clarabelle, a daily uplifting and sweetly thought-provoking cartoon aimed to send snippets of love and inspiration out into the world. Clare was a huge inspiration to me and even though she lives far, far away from me in New Zealand, she has become a life long friend and mentor.
Arthur Haines is a Botanist who founded the Delta Institute of Natural History in Canton, Maine. His passion for practicing and sharing a neoaboriginal lifeway has led him to teaching others about human ecology, the values of foraging, wildcrafting medicine, primitive living skills, and learning how to develop self-reliance and gain a greater understanding of eco-conscientiousness.
Arthur has published major textbooks, has named multiple new species and genera to science, and has helped construct websites that enable people to identify plants throughout the Northeastern U.S.
Helping people learn how to foster awareness, develop connection, better health and self-reliance through an understanding of ancestral and existing indigenous cultures are all aspects of Arthur’s life mission.
“I believe we are at an important crossroads in our existence, one where domestication of the human species has led to an inability for most to nourish, heal, and care for themselves. This process has created profound blindness to the consequences of modern industry and the illnesses associated with nature disconnection. It is critically important to recognize that this point in history.” ~ Arthur Haines
“A New Path is a clear and easily understood presentation of a meaningful and nature-connected future. Be prepared for the paradigm shift, as the world feels different after just the first chapter.” ~ Bremen James, farmer/father/forager http://www.arthurhaines.com/anewpath/
