You may know Stephen Levine as the author of several classic books in the field of conscious living and dying -- including A Gradual Awakening, Who Dies?, Healing into Life and Death, and A Year to Live. He is also the coauthor, with his wife Ondrea Levine, of the acclaimed Embracing the Beloved: Relationship as a Path of Awakening.

But I was surprised to discover that Stephen Levine is also a poet. As with the rest of his work, Stephen Levine's poetry reflects a deep attention, a recognition of the immensity of the still moment and the still heart, and the opportunities given to us as we approach that unavoidable mystery, death. His collection of poetry, "Breaking the Drought: Visions of Grace" is a wonderful meditation on life and death, the known and the unknown, being and becoming, and how awareness flows through them.

Stephen Levine died in 2016.
