I’m working my way through the worksheets and find the prompts and suggestions so helpful – I find myself constantly saying “oh I never thought of that”!
Thank you Judith for such a much-needed and valuable publication.
A little about me.
As a body-psychotherapist, massage and meditation teacher, my interest in death and dying goes back pre 1988 when I was invited as part of the team from The Michael Sobel Hospice Oxford to the 1st Scandinavian Conference on Death & Dying to speak about touch in palliative care, since then I have taught many nurses and therapists and worked in hospices and cancer support services in UK and Ireland.
I have been privileged and deeply inspired to be with many people at the end of their lives and to listen to their stories and to get to know their families. Being with people and families during their last weeks can be challenging especially if talking to each other is difficult. This book is intended to open up conversations between families and friends in the hope that there will be more clarity and less heartbreak, more celebration and times well spent together. If nothing is shared, deep heartache often follows. This is especially true if loved ones are left to cope with all manner of things at a time when love and support are needed, not stress and decision making. I have seen first–hand how heartache could have been avoided with a little foresight and planning. That is what inspired me to write this book. Find out more about my life’s work at judithashton.com
