Designing a Good Death


Despite knowing that death is the common thread that unites us all, we tend to keep the topic at arm’s length. Yet acknowledging the inevitability of death, contemplating what we wish the end to look like, and sharing our thoughts with loved ones can make our final moments profoundly meaningful. Aid-in-dying legislation, the availability of death doulas to assist in the dying process, even green burials and body composting, make it possible to end life on our own terms. Reimagining death before we close our eyes one final time liberates us to celebrate the moments we have so much more fully.
