Every moment is a choice to celebrate and all endings can include joy. This is both a private and a global conversation.
End of Life Journaling
Do you have fears around dying? Have you taken time to contemplate the practical and spiritual aspects of the end of your life? Do you want to talk to someone about how you feel or can you help a loved one to talk about their feelings? What is profoundly important to you?
Have you considered that end of life can be a creative celebration just as your birth? You may have never thought of this, but you have choices.
This is a sacred process of being present with what sparks your interest - of being curious with yourself and honoring your life even in the last stages. And feeling you can ask for what you need. In our sessions, I can walk you through the process of how to let others know what you want - to create your own celebration as you would like it.
A time of contemplation... we will go through a process of discovery, to tell your story of what inspired you in life and who you inspired using my book The Beauty of Living & Dying as a guide. We can do this at your own pace and you can make changes over time. These are the unique threads of your life's tapestry.
Do you have particular traditions and rituals that you want to further explore and include in your journal? We can do this together.
Are their colors, scents, art or particular loved objects that bring you to a peaceful state? Is there something you always wanted to do but put off?
Maybe there are healing music, sounds, and passages that you would like to record in a journal to share with loved ones - now - or at a later date.
When requested, I often use short visualizations, meditations and Reiki in the process to help ease fears.
What is Reiki?
A gentle voice, sitting or laying down, fully clothed, a comforting light touch, eyes closed, meditating together, co-healing. You have the freedom to escape into a dream of healing and grounding, whatever you need to come to balance. Fear, sadness, anger or grief are welcome - with a whisper of tenderness - for yourself. Reiki is especially good for trauma and grief.
The first session is an initial intake session and is 1 hour and 50 minutes, and subsequent sessions are 50 minutes unless agreed upon otherwise. For a Journal Session contact me.
