as regards psychedelics, see Leary, others, for the basics
set (attitude toward experience) - conditioning toward positive exit
setting (environment of experience) - surrounding with a conducive atmosphere
dosage/chem - psychoactives of peace and harmony like XTC or psilocybin would
likely be best, administered with a lethal injection of something
which does NOT disrupt consciousness but brings on death-sleep.
alternatively warm bath and blooding in a ritual sacrifice.
there are psychedelic reference files ("FAQs") as well as death-related and
suicide-related files too ("alt.suicide.holiday FAQ"). rtfm.mit.edu has many

there are books concerning death which integrate positive paradigms: Buddhist,
Shamanic, Neopagan. check them out from the library, utilize their cosmologies
as send-off techniks, publicize the results here and in alt.magick.tyagi and
I will eventually write a 'descent into the underworld visualization' which
will incorporate the kind of nightmarish images from the film 'Ghost' at the
beginning (shadows coming to take me away) yet which lead into the old
underworld of Hades and the shades taking the reader down to become the Lord
of the Underworld (the office is successively occupied and a powerful earthy
wonderland, free and secure).
have mages and visionaries to create such rite-text and visualizations for
the endpoint. alternatively check out such things as the Books of the Dead
from Egypt, Tibet, neuvo-Wicca, etc.

don't be too sure. there is a serious degredation as regards the notion
of death in all parts of the world. some 'shamans' will not wish to be
part of this. I suggest instead using internet (usenet and IRC especially)
to contact those within the Neopagan and alternative religious communities
to work on such a project, at first constructing positive attitudes/views/
visions of the death experience from a variety of perspectives, then beginning
to integrate the subtle neuro-inhibitors and psychedelic experience to infuse
it with power. some will never need those chemical-allies.

alt.magick.tantra also. ego-immersion is a prime element in magical and
tantric practices across many cultures (there are many tantrics, from the
Buddhists to Hindus to Western occultists). psychedelics and hypnosis are
often utilized within these systems, though they are not often discussed
at great volume or exposure to public scrutiny.
I also recommend making SEX (particularly intensified and prolonged orgasm)
a part of the final rites, but I'm a peculiar one, opting not only for
consensual human sacrifices but also consensual necrophilic frenzies.
