Hot on the heels of their new book We All Know How this Ends, we’re delighted to welcome end-of-life doula Anna Lyons and progressive funeral director Louise Winter (AKA Life.Death.Whatever) to teach us how and why we all need to think about death in a radically different way.
Session, Anna and Louise will look at the things we can do to support someone who is dying including asking the right questions to find out what matters most to them and helping them to create an end of life plan. It might seem like a really difficult thing to do but having those conversations about what someone who is dying wants and doesn’t want before they are unable to communicate their wishes really does help.
Anna Lyons is an end-of-life doula and Louise Winter is a progressive funeral director. Together they are the team behind Life. Death. Whatever. Their joint mission is to redesign the dialogue around death and dying, and as a result, shift people’s ideas of life, living, illness, funerals and grief. Ultimately, they believe this will provide you with a more empowered approach to whatever you’re going through. They believe that death is a normal part of life and dying is part of living. Acknowledging and accepting that one day we will die is fundamental to living a full life.
