Death touches all of us. None of us are immune, and no one will escape death.
But when someone is dying, or has died, we often approach these experiences with little or unhelpful knowledge from past experiences.
It doesn't have to be this way, as we can gather and learn to "do death differently". We can discuss fears and anxieties, while gaining new perspectives and knowledge to experience these profound events with love and compassion.
We can learn more about death, dying and grief, so that we can become more literate, thus reducing the anxieties and fears about end-of-life. This understanding can help us reduce stress and unnecessary medical interventions and approach life, and death, experiences with honor and respect.
Together, we can become death literate and transform our relationships with death, dying and grief.
