"We will all die. Every living being that we know and love will die. It is the most certain part of this. And yet, as I deepened my intimacy with death, I found myself surrounded by a culture not quite able to help me see the beauty and grace. Or the complexities of tending and grieving. Or the ways we remain connected." - Robin Sandomirsky
In July of 2017, my dear friend Robin flew across the country to help care for her friend and soul sister, Kelly Clark. While she was there, Kelly transitioned out of her earthly body. In this episode, we talk about it. The precious gift of care-giving, how watching your best friend die can be beautiful and change your relationship with living, the grief of great loss, the ceremony of preparing her body, and so. much. more.
If you are here on this planet with breath in your lungs, this conversation is for you.
