The Art of Dying Conference started on Friday March 21, at the NYC World Trade Center Marriott Hotel, Grand Ballroom, where Stephen and Ondrea Levine hosted a full day pre-conference institute entitled: A Year to Live: How to Live This Year as if it Were Your Last, (see recently published book of the same name published by Random House, 1997.) Here, after the initial speeches, the attendees were given the opportunity to take center stage and share experiences associated with the wisdom that always accompanies attendance and service for another in the hours of their passage. This "open mike" approach indicated an attitude that was to prevail throughout the weekend. The presenters, sensing the vast amount of collective experience on the part of the attendees, were willing to work closely with them, in a give and take format. What was to come of this was a definition of the future of hospice itself, which is now integrating relevant knowledge available from several different spiritual traditions.
