On Living and Dying

Listen 00:52:16

What is HOSPICE care really and is there an art to dying? Can death be the final act of living fully? Nina McKissock is an RN and writes about her fourteen years as a HOSPICE nurse in her book, From Sun To Sun. She believes there is an art to dying if we use our compassion, deep joy, love and humor. We’ll discover contemplative practices, an important part of McKissock’s work. And, we’ll discuss our healthcare system and ways to improve how we help people through the final stage of life.
