If the only certainty in life is death, why are we so reluctant
to talk about it? Whether it’s fear of illness or the unknown,
unwillingness to discuss what may be seen as morbid or macabre, or
avoidance of confronting our own mortality, death remains a taboo
subject for many people.
Jane is on a mission to make end of life planning as commonplace as birth plans. As you will hear, she is determined to help us feel more at ease talking about death, dying and grief. And, as she talks, she models beautifully the very lightness which Jane believes makes these difficult conversations easier.
In this deeply personal conversation, Jane Duncan Rogers shares how her mission began when her husband died. She describes how a friend urged and nudged them to have *that* all important conversation before it was too late and shares how positive the impact can be when an end of life plan is created.
Committed to helping us do death well, Jane is now running a Social Enterprise to support the teaching and facilitation of end of life planning. At every twist and turn, her mission has remained the thing she can’t NOT do, and she hasn’t seen the inside of her comfort zone since the day it all began.
This episode is for anyone who wants to learn more about how to approach end of life planning and how to start difficult conversations with those you love. It’s also for anyone who wants to know how to leave their comfort zone behind!
