Pause

What do you try to fast-forward?

My last post dealt with death and getting your Advance Directive done. Did you do it?

We were back into another workshop on death this past weekend. I am grateful that this work helps me focus on what matters. This poem helps me do that as well. 

HELD, NOT HEALED

Stop trying to heal yourself, fix yourself,
even awaken yourself.
Stop trying to Fast-Forward the movie of your life.
Let go of 'letting go'.
Healing is not a destination.
Be here.

I want to show up fully before I die...

I spent a day this past weekend co-leading a workshop on death with my friend and teacher, Chris Price. Usually, we hold a four-day, in-person workshop that spends time on the practical and emotional aspects of death, such as having proxies, an Advance Directive, and the personal experience of facing death with awareness. Of course, this year, we won’t gather in person. We won’t be sitting in a circle, able to support one another as we grapple with how we want to die. We are now experimenting with how to do this on Zoom.

Genetic Alliance, now 33 years old, has run Disease InfoSearch for more than 20 years. High-quality information, brought to you by the people who live with the diseases - 10,000 of them - for which we offer information. While lots of other sites offer information on most conditions, we believe those who live with these conditions should be the ones to curate this information. So too here, for Covid-19.
