De-mystifying death.  Facing Mortality. 

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.  ~Max Planck

Chronic Disease Progression & 

Decline Towards


A century ago death was typically sudden from infections, accidents, or childbirth.

Today chronic illness is common, as a result of medications, treatments and surgeries now available.


Although most chronic diseases today have a pattern of decline, ending in death, many report feeling caught off-guard when they are told they have a limited time to live.


Part 2 of this 2-Part series will examine Congestive Heart Disease, and COPD's  progression and decline.

How might your death be transformed?

Join us as we explore how bringing this silent companion- death- more fully into our lives can actually create greater peace and joy in life.

Death is not the greatest loss in life.  The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.  ~Norman Cousins

Did you know:

  • that you can stay at home, near your loved ones, after your death, until your burial?

  • that you don't have to be embalmed?

  • that you aren't required to use a funeral home?

Our deceased loved ones used to lay in state in the home after death. It was comforting and intimate. This option is still available today, even though you may not realized or have been told otherwise.

Learn more about home funeral and natural burial options available.
