We gathered in Clifton Hill today to mark Dying to Know Day 2022. Nine of us shared our thoughts and listened to each other speak from the heart about all things End of Life and Death.
Grieving our loved humans and pets was a common theme today ...Stories about the challenges and the beauty in being with the dying. Staying grounded and open while the emotions of others around you are roller coasting.
A huge takeaway for me was the understanding of how life is made up of many deaths ..as we experience the cycles of life and move through the decades we grieve losses and embrace new beginnings. Divorce , menopause, careers,family leaving the nest , parents dying . We spoke of the moon cycles and the cycles in nature . So much to take away and such deep connection . Thanks to all the participants for your vulnerability and courage.
