      Dear Friends,


      Some of you are no doubt aware of the work Elisabeth Kubler-Ross did
      among many Anthroposophists, and, as a result of that work, was
      "discredited" by the so-called official scientific medical community.
      Her "five stages" are a wonderful blend for many of those studying Steiner.

      Blessings,

      Sheila


      Pioneer In Thinking On Dying Has Died

      POSTED: 9:48 am EDT August 25, 2004

      *PHOENIX -- *A psychiatrist who helped change how the world looks at
      terminally ill patients has died.Family members say Elisabeth
      Kubler-Ross died Tuesday of natural causes at her home in Scottsdale,
      Ariz. She was 78.Her 1969 book "On Death and Dying" focused on the needs
      of the dying. It offered her theory that terminally ill patients go
      through five stages of grief -- denial, anger, bargaining, depression
      and acceptance.

      She once wrote that people who learn to know -- rather than fear and
      fight death -- "become our teachers about life."Kubler-Ross also argued
      that medical care focusing just on keeping the body running ignores a
      terminally ill patient "as a human being."She wrote 12 later books on
      subjects including how to deal with the death of a child and an early
      study of the AIDS epidemic.
