It was a wonderful honour to speak with Death By Design Podcast - Kimberly C. Paul to discuss the essential need for greater access to timely support and education about Palliative Care - as death is not elective and illness and dying do not discriminate, we all encounter life-limiting illness, dying and grief. So... let's talk about it.

"All the #wonders of #nature were sacred to her and this reverence and awe imbues her poetry with the numinous awe she felt as she sought #solace and #peace in the wonders of the natural world"

"Our #reactions to the #stressful events of our lives can become so habituated that they occur essentially out of our awareness, until, because of #physical or #emotional or #psychological dysfunction, we cannot ignore them any longer. These reactions can include tensing the body, experiencing painful emotional states, even panic and depression, and being prisoners of habits of thinking and self-talk including obsessional list making, and intense, even toxic self-criticism.

All we have to do is to establish #attention in the #present moment, and to allow ourselves to be with what is here. So, we can practice #mindfulness and become more present." via Mindful.org

"Go out and find your awe moments and listen to them carefully, see where they guide you. What you’ll find, in how they stir #humility and #wonder, is that they will point you towards what you’re supposed to do while you’re here on Earth." via Mindful.org

"In the end, #socialmedia hasn’t changed our #grieving process as much as it’s given us new channels to #express (and share) our grief, and each of us will approach that #grief differently. '#Assess your level of #need, because there are times when just sitting by yourself won’t do it,' Rutledge says. 'Sometimes you even need professional #help, but I think one of the lessons of meditation is to really listen to yourself, and that’s where deciding how you need to #grieve can be a product of sitting quietly and listening to your own needs.' It’s a work in progress for me, but I’m slowly learning to lean on my social media #network as one of the many avenues for ongoing grief-related #support without worrying about what my friends, acquaintances, or followers might think." via Headspace Inc.
