    Description

    As a practising mortician, Caitlin Doughty has long been fascinated by our pervasive terror of dead bodies. In From Here to Eternity, she sets out in search of cultures unburdened by such fears.

    In rural Indonesia, she observes a man clean and dress his grandfather's mummified body. She meets Bolivian ñatitas (cigarette-smoking, wish-granting human skulls) and introduces us to the Japanese ritual of kotsuage, in which relatives use chopsticks to pluck their loved ones' bones from cremation ashes.

    With curiosity and morbid humour, Doughty introduces us to inspiring death-care innovators, participates in powerful death practices almost entirely unknown in the West and explores new spaces for mourning - including a futuristic glowing-Buddha columbarium in Japan, a candlelit Mexican cemetery and America's only open-air pyre. In doing so she expands our sense of what it means to treat the dead with dignity and reveals unexpected possibilities for our own death rituals.

    Read by Caitlin Doughty.

    Traveling to gain a good death perspective

    Thoroughly enjoyed the book. I want to seek to more death rituals around the world and love how you also pointed out how not to act. I'm often embarrassed by the lack of tact western travellers make when being guests in sacred ritual. Incredible book that I would absolutely recommend to friends but especially family.

    amazing and thought provoking

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this work. the author has a lovely voice and her reading style is nice to listen to, varied voice and pace.

    the content was thought provoking and vivid. I could see myself alongside her and imagine the scenes easily. I found myself questioning my outlook on death and it rituals around it. I found much comfort through this book



    whether you are comfortable with death or fear it I would highly recommend this audio book!

    It helped me a lot - Informative, respectful, beautiful

    Caitlin takes you with her around the world and let’s you experience the different kinds of death and traditions in a respectful and informative manner.
    She opens your eyes to new possibilities for grief and healing in a beautiful way, and shows what a good death could be.
    Highly recommended for everyone, but especially those who have problems dealing with grief, death, corpses, and other morbid subjects that should not be considered morbid or taboo.

    Interesting and thoughtful

    Interesting Storys about different cultures and their relationship to their death. Well researched and entertainingly presented.
    The Autor who narrates her book does a very good job. There's only one negative: she tries to get us to understand death practices, who might seem alienating and disturbing to us, asking us to rethink our own relationship to death and what is wrong with the "western way" of funeral homes. I wish she had allowed her audience to come to their own conclusions instead of spelling it out and being yet another person telling others what's right and wrong.
