To die well is 
to live well.

What does it mean to you to 'live well'?

What does it mean to 'die well'? Is that even possible?

It is impossible to investigate one and ignore the other. 

Looking at the preciousness of life through the lens of death brings about perspective, urgency, and prioritization. 

Imagine consciously preparing for death--

from organizing paperwork to

clarifying what death means to you spiritually.  

Choose from one-on-one consulting, group discussions, and workshops for guidance and support

while navigating the end-of-life waters.

"Death has nothing to do with going away.

The sun sets. The moon sets.

But they are not gone."



I learned about Maggie’s workshop on The 5 Wishes and am so glad I did. It got me thinking about, and solidifying future plans so when needed, my family will know with certainty what my final wishes are. Maggie is an excellent teacher. As a nurse and compassionate person, she really gave me a lot to think about. 

...I feel empowered! I feel like I can face tomorrow with confidence knowing that if anything happens to me, my loved ones know how I would like to be treated. And that is a tremendous gift, for which I know they are grateful. 

Talking about death with Maggie informs a fuller life; the Wednesday night sunset circle group has inspired me to live through my values. Maggie's research & knowledge, facilitation skills and kindness create a space of compassion to safely explore difficult topics. The discussions encourage us to find pockets in our life where we can safely take risks, extend kindness to others, and live the life we want in the present. I wouldn't want to be guided through these topics by anyone else!
