Words of Wisdom for Nov. 14, 2019:
Joan Halifax on the Denial of Death

“Denial of death runs rampant through our culture, leaving us woefully unprepared when it is our time to die, or our time to help others die. We often aren’t available for those who need us, paralyzed as we are by anxiety and resistance—nor are we available for ourselves.”
― Joan Halifax, Being with Dying:
