Death has been pushed out of life and into a dark and lonely ‘morgue’. North American’s generally approach the topic of death with fear and denial in hand. When Death Speaks is all about changing the conversation to one of openness and inspiration.
When Death Speaks approaches death with compassion, love and frankness, talking openly about death, planning for the inevitable, and supporting family and friends with tools and skills to begin a new type of conversation.
The tools, information, and real life stories are all designed to offer a different perspective in dealing with death and loss. The practices offered are designed to use ‘smaller deaths’ as preparation for the death of our body.
When Death Speaks is all about bringing death back to life.
