5 Steps for Successful End-of-Life Planning Conversations

Your mortality is an opportunity in disguise.

Death is the one thing in life we’re most certain of, yet most people would do anything to avoid talking or even thinking about it. For most of us, it takes death itself—whether recent or impending—to prompt us to bravely consider the reality of our mortality.

People in their dying days often speak of experiencing enormous growth and transformation. Dying can be a time of truth seeking and risk taking. Many have observed that in the face of death, people tend to focus on what gives their life meaning.

Perhaps you’ve experienced something similar around a health crisis or the death of someone you knew. The truth is, you don’t need to wait until someone dies or you’re faced with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness to experience these benefits.

"Completing the online program has really grounded me in the face of the current epidemic. With clarity about who and what matter most, the current events have simply called me to focus even more intently on exactly that. This has given me a significant sense of personal calm and peace amongst the storm."

—Karen Hendrickson, Life Coach, End of Life Doula &  Licensed Willow EOL Facilitator
