Death is a subject that many of us are reluctant to talk about. By accepting that death is inevitable and being open to the fact that we too will die, we are more willing to discuss this subject openly which enables us to be there for others who are facing their own death. Without open conversation about death we are unprepared and do not understand what may lie ahead which can bring up a great deal of fear, anxiety and tension for both the dying person and their friends and family. Articles on this page openly and honestly explore what may be on offer at this stage of life. We invite you to ponder with us the purpose of the dying process and what it is preparing us for.
