Over the past 100 years, our culture has sadly become death phobic – we shy away from the natural aging process, avoid end-of-life planning and focus on prolonging life at all costs. This underlying fear and anxiety puts our individual health at risk, and losing our connection to Mother nature puts our collective existence at risk.
When we find the courage to lean into our death journey consciously and prepare ourselves spiritually, emotionally and mentally for our transition from this life, we can say ‘no thank you’ to life support and welcome death support. Dying consciously with grace and acceptance is the greatest legacy we can leave behind.
