ExtraOrdinary: An End of Life Story Without End is a spiritual memoir and love story about a man who became a healer and teacher in his mid-nineties as his own life was coming to completion. Herman Liss, an Orthodox Jew, was described by a Christian mystic with the Buddhist term bodhisattva -- a person who returns to this life to help lift others on their soul journey. Herman found his soul mate late in life and was devastated by her eventual death, but as a nursing home and hospice patient helped heal those who cared for him.

Herman's story is told by the stepdaughter who adored him as her father not by blood but by blessing and the young nursing home volunteer who created an award-winning film about his passage from loss and despair to connection and joy.

Michele Tamaren is the founder of the multi-faith Council for Spiritual Connection and lectures widely on spirituality, healing and happiness, and compassionate care and spiritual growth at the end of life.
