Why Work with a Death Coach? Because, Let's Face It, Time is Running Out!
Here’s a thought for the day. I’m no genius, but with reasonable certainty, none of you will be here a hundred years from now. You will all be 100% gone, without a trace. Everybody alive right now will probably be gone too. We shall all cease to exist as we know ourselves. The world will be filled with new people, new dreams, and new struggles.
Yes, folks, we are all going to die. There’s no news here, right, you already know this. Yet death is a subject most of us avoid. Unless we watch movies about it happening to other people!
I am not and end-of-life coach. Those folks are highly trained specialists who do beautiful work. I am a life coach who can hold space to explore death!
What is a life coach doing writing about death you might ask?! Simply put, death is so close and life is so precious. If you are to live a vital and purposeful life, it is worth reconciling your relationship to life and death while you have the chance!
How might your life today, the decisions you make, and the people you connect with, be affected by this knowledge? The prospect of death requires you to take a good look at your life.
What are you doing with your life? Is it robotic and treadmill driven or is it flowing, expressive, beautiful and alive? Is it time for change? I might be able to help you make that change.
Most days we deny the possibility of dying in how we live, we deny it in our actions. Most of us behave as though we are going to be around forever. Some of us behave as though we are already dead by avoiding what life has to offer or by numbing our aliveness.
As a life coach I have become fascinated by people’s relationship to death. The most pungent opportunities for personal evolution and the attainment of peace can be harvested from an open discussion about death.
One Hundred Years is such a short time to get to know yourself. Where can you go to discuss Life’s Big Questions like; what is life, what is death and who am I? ... Especially if religious platitudes no longer convincingly deliver.
Maybe today is a great day to take a good look at how you are living your life, given that death is a certain truth. Give me a call, and together we can explore opportunities to live more passionately, purposefully or peacefully, while you are alive. I can support you to make tangible changes toward your innate happiness. We can co-explore life’s mysteries and even talk about death. Especially if you are hungry for opening and realizing the sacred miracle that you are.
Hopefully, your own radical-end will be many years from now. Have a great day!
If you are interested in talking about death (or any other life challenge for that matter) get in touch!
Why would I want to work with a death coach?
Okay, I know what you're thinking. "Why would I want to work with a death coach? That sounds depressing!" But hear me out. As a life coach who specializes in death coaching, I know firsthand how much of an impact facing your own mortality can have on your life. And trust me, it's not all doom and gloom.
Let's face it, time is running out for all of us. None of us know how much time we have left on this earth, and that can be a scary thought. But it can also be incredibly empowering when we use it as a catalyst for change and growth.
As a death coach, I can help you face your own mortality in a way that is both light-hearted and meaningful. We'll explore what really matters to you and how you want to spend the time you have left. We'll also look at any fears, doubts, or uncertainties you may have and find ways to overcome them.
And let's be real, working with a death coach is the ultimate irony. It's like getting a jumpstart on your own eulogy! But it can also be a fun and enlightening experience. We'll use humor and creativity to explore the big questions in life and find ways to live more fully in the present moment.
I believe that everyone can benefit from death coaching, regardless of age or life experience. Whether you're just starting out in your career or you're nearing retirement, there's always something to be gained from facing your own mortality.
And let's be honest, who doesn't want to make the most of their time on this earth?
