Stephen Levine is a poet and teacher of guided meditation healing techniques. He and his wife and spiritual partner, Ondrea, have counseled the dying and their loved ones for more than 30 years. Stephen Levine's bestselling books Healing into Life and Death;A Gradual Awakening; and A Year to Live are considered classics in the field of conscious living and dying. He is also the coauthor, with Ondrea, of the acclaimed To Love and Be Loved; and Who Dies?
The Levine's work is said to stretch from the most painful experiences of the human spectrum to the furthest point on the human horizon, from hell to heaven, from pain to ease, from our ongoing sense of loss to the legacy of our unending interconnectedness. Their experiential Conscious Living / Conscious Dying workshops are a meditative investigation of what it means to be fully alive, cultivating the qualities which heal the mind and heart, exploring the nature of what it is that dies.
Presently Stephen and Ondrea live in the high mountains of the Southwest; attempting to practice what they preach in the silence of the deep woods, seeking the healing they took birth for. They no longer have a telephone or do individual counseling as their energies, for now, are mostly directed inward. To continue their work they have created Warm Rock Tapes as a separate business, which also distributes past productions, to share their guided meditations and talks from the few times a year they go out to teach, but they are not available directly.
