If you only had a year to live, what would you do? In his work with the dying, author Stephen Levine observed the radical changes people can make in the face of death - how they heal relationships, open up to love, act on plans put off for years, even quit dead-end jobs. Levine challenged himself to live an entire year as if it were his last - and in this revealing narrative he shares what he learned. Through a series of month-by-month practices anyone can do, and including special meditations and exercises, A Year to Live teaches a way to live every day of your life with vivid fullness.

Listener Opinions

    " While interesting at times, this book is painfully dull the rest. Lofty ideas and complicated, grandiose language tainted what could have been an inspiring read. "

    " The concept isn't entirely new: "What would you do if you had only one year to live?" (And how do you know you have even that long?) Levine, who has worked for many years with the dying, describes his own experience in approaching life and death more mindfully. In the process, he offers specific recommendations for letting go of attachments, forgiving others and ourselves, and eliminating suffering without numbing ourselves to the entire range of feeling. The "soft-belly meditation" is one of the most simple yet powerful practices I've ever encountered. By showing us how to prepare for death, Levine makes a persuasive case that doing so will result in our being fully alive. "

    " Good to wake up and know that life is short - there is not enough love so bring some - don't waste a minute. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 11/7/2013

    " Overall, I thought it was very uneven. A couple of chapters were thought-provoking and several sentences merited a highlighted. It was too stream-of-consciousness for my tastes and could have used a better editor to achieve a cohesive final product. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce | 10/26/2013

    " Motivator for living life now...I love the breathing meditation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cecilia Zuniga | 10/24/2013

    " Death is an inescapable part of our experiences here - both symbolically and literally. Stephen Levine offers deep insight into our resistance to dying and death, practices for clearing the resistance, and gentle wisdom for moving beyond our fear so that we can open fully to life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Georgina Thynne | 10/19/2013

    " This book makes you think and puts things into perspective. Very positive advice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 HeatherAsh | 9/11/2013

    " Still digesting this one; it is another gem from a heart-opened author. Stephen Levine offers so much to the world around death and dying. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cassidy | 7/6/2013

    " Bleh. I found the author to be SOOOOOO high and mighty. Plus it was quite repetitive. Not for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loretta Brown | 5/31/2013

    " Yes.....what if this was the last year? What then? How would you live your life? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alec Story | 3/6/2013

    " I thought it was fascinating to learn what some people think about their lives on their deathbeds. Things they have valued and thought were important for decades suddenly become irrelevant when you are face-to-face with your death. Fascinating! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drjfkennedy | 9/21/2012

    " A wonderful way to take stock of your life and remember what's truly important "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 9/3/2012

    " Stephen and Ondrea Levine are amazing teachers. This book and the audiobook are ones I pick up and read and listen to over and over again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terrie | 6/17/2012

    " A good one to re-read every now and then. Helps keep things in perspective "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniela | 4/20/2012

    " I really liked reading this book. I think about it every so often in my life. I didn't practice "a year to live" but integrated some of the ideas of "living in this moment" into my life. I love the "Soft belly meditation". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Luke Concannon | 5/31/2011

    " A beautifull look at a way of ordering and coming to peace with your inner life (and so your outer) over a year. Looking at death as an invitation to live. The best preperation for death being to live every moment fully! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 4/15/2011

    " This book just didn't do it for me. Too dry and impersonal in style. Certainly, Stephen has wisdom to share, but this piece of writing was not the inspiration I sought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 3/21/2011

    " This book certainly gives you a lot to think about at any stage of your life. Guided meditations and a 12 month group practice. I am excited to see what happens this "last year" "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 1/24/2011

    " While interesting at times, this book is painfully dull the rest. Lofty ideas and complicated, grandiose language tainted what could have been an inspiring read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 12/5/2010

    " Everyone who will eventually die (!) needs to read and
    absorb this book. The exercise of contemplating and
    preparing for our own death is an exercise that should not
    be postponed or feared. Wonderful guide. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 3/3/2010

    " This is one I'll have to read a second time...all about "soft belly", gratitude and forgiveness. Waking and sleeping with gratitude in mind makes a hugh difference in my day! Thank you, Mr. Levine. "
