With the End in Mind: Dying, Death and Wisdom in an Age of Denial
Death. Often considered to be morbid, ghoulish and unmentionable, but does it have to be that way?
Written by Palliative Care Specialist Kathyrn Mannix, With the End in Mind is an exploration of the biggest taboo in our society and the only certainty we all share. After 30 years working in end of life care, Kathryn is on a mission. She feels passionately that it's time to reclaim public understanding of dying and to better understand what the process is. It's time to recognise that despite the advances of medicine, none of us are immortal and that dying well is a real and important possibility for which we can plan.
Told through a series of powerful stories taken from Kathryn's clinical practice and interwoven with her own professional experience, this extraordinary book sends a vital message to the living and answers the most urgent, intimate and fascinating questions about the end-of-life process with touching honesty and humility.
Joining Kathyrn for this life affirming conversation will be Palliative Medicine Consultant Dr. Anna Lock and funeral director Carrie Weekes from A Natural Undertaking. They will be discussing why we need to talk more about death and how this will positively impact our lives.
