Death and dying are a part of life that can oftentimes cause fear, anxiety or straight-up denial. I believe that embracing death as a natural part of life and planning for it in a thoughtful and meaningful way is essential to living and dying well. Though dying is not optional, the way we live and relate to death is.
“Death is a part of life and integral to our wholeness as humans. Exploring the way you live and die can be healing, life-affirming and empowering.”

Whether it’s several hours or up to 3 days (legal in the state of Minnesota you can extend the time you have with your loved one to allow for space to begin the transition of saying goodbye, allowing for grief to flow, and mark this threshold with love, honor, and compassion.
