Before Forever After: When Conversations About Living Meet Questions About Dying (by Helena Dolny)
More talking. Less suffering. More living alive with intention and joy. Helena Dolny imagines a world in which people engage in death-in-life conversations as part of everyday living. She believes we’d live better and suffer less if we were to talk about dying more readily. Archbishop Desmond Tutu told her:‘This taboo about not talking about dying…needs to be challenged.’ Helena interviewed family and friends as well as people across continents in diverse professions including the funeral business, palliative care, spiritual leaders and financial advisors. The outcome: 57 stories on nine themes that will stop you in your tracks and make you think about how you choose to live and how you’d prefer to die. This book’s rich cast of storytellers does not provide answers. The gift Before Forever After offers is the inspiration to craft clearer and sharper questions so that you, the reader, may shape your own unique response to this fierce, fundamental and inevitable force of life.
