Stephen and Ondrea Levine
Stephen and Ondrea Levine are internationally known speakers and writers on spirituality, relationships, and issues of death and dying. In addition to his work with the terminally ill, Stephen Levine is also an accomplished poet. Stephen and Ondrea Levine have counseled terminally ill people and their families for over thirty years.
In Embracing the Beloved (review or buy), Stephen and Ondrea Levine share wisdom from their years of relationship-oriented spiritual work. In the book, they share the idea of embracing the Beloved -- an experience of reaching "deeper and deeper levels of being." This is a book not so much about romantic relationships as about expanding into a spiritual relationship with all life.

Drawing on his background with Vipassana meditation, Stephen Levine provides insights into the process of training the mind and expanding the spirit.
