Doing Death Well

Working with Death and Dying

As a Deathwalker, my work has been a great privilege and a wonderful learning, death has been an excellent teacher. I have worked with so many people in different circumstances, my level of familiarity has offered insights and gifts that I share and pass on to help others explore, and come to a place of acceptance of our own death and those that we love.

Death is certain, although the time and circumstances are uncertain. The best time to prepare is in the fullness of our lives. Many cultures and philosophies embrace the concept of living life as a practice for death.

By being courageous enough to look at the fears we hold around living and dying, we allow ourselves to face them fully, work with them and transform them. Facing our fears in an honest and open way, and with guidance and assistance the quality of our lives can be enriched.

Religion, science, spirituality and philosophy have all pondered the great questions death provokes. They have created a range of concepts and beliefs for us to consider, embrace or dismiss. These can be a help or a hindrance.

Not fixed in any one belief, religion or dogma, I embrace them all and work towards a more universal and accepting approach, open to discovery and in appreciation of the mystery.

What happens after death will become clear to us only when we die, it is our journey to get there that is my interest and passion. Ultimately, I am inspired by the words of the Dalai Lama, “my religion is simple, my religion is kindness”.
