When the mind, one-pointed and fully focused, knows the supreme silence in the Heart, this is true learning.

Why I Do What I Do

Why I Do What I Do
People have wondered what prompted me to start writing about death, dying, and bereavement. During the years I have been counseling others regarding these topics, I have come to realize that in our culture, even thought we hear a lot about death, there are many who don’t have much understanding about this part of life. Therefore, I have created this website and write this blog to provide information and to answer your questions about any aspect of death, dying, or bereavement. If you’d like to submit a question, please leave a comment. Before I can publish your question, you’ll need to include your name (let me know if you don’t want it published).

Several people have asked about my personal experiences of loss. My father died in 1999 from complications from leukemia. I was with him up to the end. We were very close and I miss him greatly. However, I must also say his death had a profound positive effect on me and I credit his death with me leaving the business world, going back to college to get my masters degree, and becoming a counselor specializing in end-of-life and bereavement concerns. I have also had other losses, especially my mother in 2006, that continue to inspire me to do what I can to help others.
