1/1

Hundreds of people die every day in a hospital ICU and that is the last place they want to be for their final breath or where they want their beloveds experiencing their passing. But most people do not think about, plan for, or acknowledge that dying is on their life script. Our contemporary society has separated death and dying from the natural consequence of living to such a degree that most people are uncomfortable and unfamiliar with the process. In embracing the fact that we are going to die we have the opportunity to create our best dying process and death, whatever that may be. It is a remarkably personal process.
