v2 JF Shining Light on Death

In the presence of someone who is nearing the end of their life, not knowing what to say or do can be daunting, frightening or even embarrassing. There is a natural concern about not wanting to offend or cause pain by saying the ‘wrong’ thing.  But being with someone who is dying can also be experienced as the greatest privilege of all. Perhaps we should think less about what to say or do and more about how to practise the particular qualities of being gracefully present and respectful. It may be that just by ‘holding the space’ we’re doing enough, and the basic requirement for that is the capacity to be compassionately human- the greatest enabler of all.
