REMEMBER, YOU’RE THE DESIGNER.

We must become the designer of our own destination.
We must learn how to build the pathways to our last chapter by creating the blueprints that reflect our individual lives and values. During this podcast, as we share interviews with hospice and palliative care experts, authors, and artists, you will hear personal stories of caregivers inspired to create tools to help others with their own end of life journey as well as share intimate stories of those facing a serious illness.  By sharing these stories and information, we hope you will learn how to design, plan and embrace your own end of life.

My personal story -   http://www.deathbydesign.com/personal-story-apple-effect/

Each podcast cost $250.00 and is free to the general public.  We just finished our first season and starting to record the second season.  We are looking for funding to continue this service.

Death by Design EPISODE 35: KERRY EGAN, HOSPICE CHAPLAIN & AUTHOR – “LIVING ON”

http://www.deathbydesign.com/podcast/episode-35-kerry-egan-author-living/

As a hospice chaplain, Kerry Egan didn’t offer sermons or prayers unless they were requested. In fact, in her work she found that the dying rarely wanted to talk about God, at least not openly.

She discovered that she’d been granted an invaluable chance to witness firsthand what she calls the “spiritual work of dying.” The work of finding meaning of one’s life, making sense of the experiences it’s contained and the people who have touched it including the betrayals, wounds, unfinished business, and unrealized dreams.

Instead of talking, Kerry mainly listened to stories of hope and regret, shame and pride, mystery and revelation and secrets held too long. Most of all, though, she listened as her patients talked about love—love for their children and partners and friends; love they didn’t know how to offer; love they gave unconditionally; love they sometimes belatedly learned to grant themselves.

On Living isn’t about dying—it’s a book about living. And Kerry isn’t just passively bearing witness to these stories. An emergency procedure during the birth of her first child left her physically whole but emotionally and spiritually adrift. Her work as a hospice chaplain healed her from a brokenness she came to see we all share.

Each of her patients taught her something—how to find courage in the face of fear or the strength to make amends; how to be profoundly compassionate and fiercely empathetic; how to see the world in grays instead of black and white. In this poignant, moving, and beautiful book, she passes along her patients’ precious and necessary gifts.

Kimberly C. Paul wants to radically change the way people face end of life, and she’s using her extensive experience as a storyteller to do just that. From the set of Saturday Night Live in New York City, to casting for CBS daytime, Kimberly has spent the last 17 years telling a very different kind of story. As Vice President of Outreach and Communications for Lower Cape Fear Hospice, she used a myriad of award-winning marketing strategies to share real stories about death and dying and the keys to making every moment matter.

Now, Death by Design Podcast brings leading healthcare professionals, artists, authors and design thinkers together to discuss how we can look at our own deaths differently.

Let's make our death an experience and not just a destination.
