It sounds like an oxymoron, right? But Ann Neumann’s amazing book attempts to address the question of what a ‘good’ death may look like, and it stems right from her own experiences. It’s an American story, and a rich one, and it’s totally relevant to the mission Bart Campolo has to cultivate the best life – including its ending – that we can figure out how to live.
Here are some of the subjects that come up in this episode:
- How our end of life culture and systems are in need of a serious rethink
- What Ann’s takeaways about death are, after spending time with the dying
- What comforts people who are afraid of death?
- Why people often finally die when their loved ones step away from them
- The role of religion
- Can psychedelics help us gain perspective about death?
- Ann’s take on running toward what scares you
