“Our goal in this workshop is to move people towards a greater acceptance of death. In order to do that we must accept life. To live more fully and be more present. People often don’t talk about death because they fear it. The fear of death is rooted in the fact that people fail to observe the death process. We can start to overcome that fear by doing exactly what we have done today. Talking openly and honeslty about it. We can take it further by serving others in the dying process.”
