This is such vitally important topic. It is an inevitable journey for all of us and we will all most likely have the opportunity to guide someone onto their next plane at some point in our lives. As difficult and heavy as it can be, it is time to create a healing and open dialogue surrounding death and the process of dying.
Emily L'ami, Founder of ritual + aromatherapy collection Bodha Modern Wellness is doing just that with her latest passion project A MODERN GUIDE TO A GOOD DEATH, a beautiful ode to her late father. When the two of us were discussing our similar paths with the death of her father and the passing of my mother, we both recognized how a resource like this would have been so helpful during our journeys in assisting them to pass on :: a place to find support, to learn more about what to expect, to hear other's moving stories, a quiet and inviting landing place in the hopes that you will realize that you are not alone. And a safe space to open the painful conversations around dying and all the changes that occur after your loved one has passed on. I would recommend this site for anyone who may be in the middle of your journey with a loved one and for all those who are struggling after the passing, when all those emotions settle in and the REALness of it all is smacking you in the face and stopping you in your tracks. You are not alone.
I am beyond honored to have the opportunity to share my own journey with her audience.
