End of Life Conversation

A brief summary of discussions and experiences from End of Life Conversation.

What is End of Life Conversation?

Death. A word, a sentence, a story; all culminated into one small word.

We at Love Heals cancer through our End of Life Conversation Series aim to return to the old ways which we have left somewhere in the pages of our glorious history. Instead of focusing on avoiding death as a taboo we want to bring it out on the open through activities including group meditation and healing sessions.

This circle was joined by Mayank, Neha, Rakhi, Ashis and Dimple (host)

What is Life? A journey? An event? Or a destination? We have so many definitions, theories and so many books on life. But do we have any definition of death? Unfortunately, the answer is No.

We have been so trained to talk about life and it’s pleasant moments, that the very utterance of END OF LIFE, leaves us speechless. We just don’t want to discuss the end of life. How much ever we run away from this topic of death, it is inevitable.

We all prepare for life, but not for death. Rather than shying away from such important issue, it’s high time we embrace or at least attempt to embrace it. Many of the participants in this healing Circle were a part of the departing of a loved one. Being witness to their closed one’s death they were willing to shed light on their experiences, which could help others cope up and prepare for such situations.

We all will die one day. So we should prepare ourselves for this event in a positive manner, rather than in a negative manner. When we see death as a dark hole, it will kill us mentally. So why not see it as a light, as a truth we have to face.

If we see it in a brighter context, we will realize the intrinsic value of life.

Adding to this, we will give more significance to the time we have remaining. We will live with a more humane approach and moving away from running behind materialistic pleasures.

This End of Life Conversation was indeed an eye-opener and life-altering in terms of the hushed topic of death. Ending this with a quote as usual, “Because I can count on my fingers the number of sunsets I have left, and I don’t want to miss any of them.” — Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2)
