~Guiding the dying home ~ one Heart, one Family, one Community at a time.
The Heart of Dying Project is deeply committed to building heart centered, compassionate communities, able to support those in need of companionship throughout the natural cycles of life and death. Exploring our deaths through education, support and advocacy often allows for a more peaceful, contemplative quality of life, not only for ourselves but for those we may care for in the future.
We believe by creating bridges of support and care between individuals, families and organizations, healing and companionship naturally follows. When we move death into a place of honor in our lives, like birth ~ we may choose to become more conscious of what a good death means to us. How we share this wisdom with those we love, for the benefit of our children's children, becomes one of our greatest Life teachings and legacy.
Death is not the OPPOSITE ~ of life ~ but part of it

If it takes a village to raise a child ~ it then makes sense it may take a community to support, nurture and accompany the dying. Its time to reconnect with the nature of our own life and death. Death unites us as human beings and is the golden thread we find woven throughout our tapestry of life. As we walk into the sacred, untouched place within our heart of hearts, its time to embrace a place we recognize deep within called home. Whether we are actively dying, are caring for someone who is, or are simply curious. Isn't it more likely we would enjoy the journey of life more freely if we were able to somehow make peace with our eventual death?
