A Necessary Conversation Facilitating End-of-Life Experiences
Engaging in the necessary conversations about life and death is hard
This is the place to learn about the End-of-Life (EOL), and how to help yourself and those you love during the experience.
What may your loved one be feeling? How can you comfort them and ease their pain, and yours? What practical things must get done? How can you reduce unnecessary suffering?
These are but a few of the questions I can help you with. Many fear broaching the subject of death, yet ignoring it won't make it go away.
Let's talk about the elephant in the room
My purpose and my passion is working with individuals, families, communities and businesses to share my knowledge about the EOL. Your understanding of death, which we will all be touched by, can be transformed.
By bringing it to the surface, talking about it, preparing for certain aspects of it, and giving it a deeper sense of love and honor, you can make this feared experience something more meaningful and peaceful when the time comes.

Deepening the relationships between the living and the dying
Deepening the relationships between the living and the dying can be comforting and healing when you understand how.
Both birth and death are a natural part of life. While you instinctively know how to welcome the birth of a new baby, saying farewell to life, does not come as easily.
When you are prepared for the inevitable, and engage in those necessary conversations, you will have less fear, more capacity to stay in the moment, and a better understanding of both your own emotions and those of the dying.
Whether you are facing your own mortality or that of a loved one or pet, take this opportunity and learn how to "do death differently".
