Ep. 12 Dr Kathryn Mannix demystifying the dying process & how to prepare for a good death
This week I speak to Dr Kathryn Mannix, palliative care pioneer, about the dying process. Like birth, there are certain stages of death which Kathryn hopes to demystify in her book ‘With the End in Mind’. Kathryn does a wonderful job in normalising this process which we all face and looks at how we can take the fear out of this natural and inevitable stage of life. Kathryn oozes compassion and humanity, offering ways in which we can approach this often-feared topic in a whole new light.
We discuss ways in which we can support our loved ones who are facing death and also how we can make our own deaths easier for our loved ones.
Kathryn’s wisdom goes a long way in normalising death and dying, this really is a must-listen for all of us!
