I'm nearly 40 so old by other peoples measures but my dad is dying. He has had a brain tumor for 2 years and now he is lying in a death bed. He will not recover. He will never speak to me again. He will die soon. I mean in the next week. And I feel weak. I'll miss Him xx
I've created a 40 day online program for death, grief and loss. The program consists of daily yoga + meditation practices, creative exercises, art, poetry and music. I lost my Mother when I was a teenager and then my Father about five years ago (when I was 31).
This is a passion project and I've launched a kickstarter to get it off the ground.
Leg8cy was created due to the uncertainty of life. You can send messages and gifts dated in the future that will be sent after your death. This website was created because my brother in law passed away at a young age due to cancer. He left behind a 6 year old daughter and I think he would have loved to leave her some messages. Can you imagine if her dad left her a message for every birthday, how important that would be to her. Leg8cy offers a free messaging service.

A lovely collection of poems by Andrena Yeats ( a freind of mine). As the press realse from Macmillan says:
"When I first met Andrena she was dealing with her grief in a positive and creative way by composing a series of poems. I was struck by how honest they were, and how they progressed in stages through all aspects of human emotion.
Her vision is that her collection, Night Swallowtails, and the process of its creation will resonate with others going through similar circumstances and help them as it has her.
We are deeply grateful to Andrena for choosing us as one of the charities to benefit from ...

The purpose of this booklet is to detail recommendations of good practices in relation to maternal grief and bereavement in search of establishing a dialogue about the loss, breaking the taboo and the silence about grief.The objective is also to help all the mothers that go through this tragedy to have access to information on the course of the grieving process in a practical and easy-to-understand way, which will help them to become more aware of their needs and their feelings, stimulating an improvement in the quality of life after the loss and thus preventing complications associated with mourning. We also intend to emphasize the importance of social and family ties in the process, awakening empathy and helping them to better understand the needs of these mothers so that they can succeed in getting the new reality adapted.
My family loved me very much ,
and taught me well to share,
And I am able yet to give,
though I am not there,
Mourn me not my family;
my spirits still in you,
The lesson that you taught so well
gives work I love to do
I hope that you find comfort in my memory
The work I do helps someone to live –
My greatest legacy.
