How true is this sentence?

It took me a while to understand what this means and it impacts the way that I choose to live – moving towards death, more mindfully.

For many years, I’ve been asking myself why there are so many rituals, publications, and preparation connected to birth and life but not necessarily about death.

Are we scared thinking about it? Are we scared of accepting that we all will die? What are we fearful of?


One thing that has helped me get familiar and eventually comfortable with any topic is to speak about it, have a conversation about it, and, whenever possible, gather some facts about it.

Death is one of those topics of paramount importance in me integrating peace into my life.


I decided to speak to Rachelle Fuerer about it. I’ve known and worked with Rachelle for more than a decade.

She was the first therapist I worked with to help me go deep into my subconscious mind to heal deep wounds that contributed to the burnout I experienced in 2008. I have learnt so much from her on so many topics. We both finally agreed to create a series about Death and Dying:

  • The 1st episode (which I release today) is about natural death, what it means, what It can look like, why it is important to be prepared for it and how to do so.
  • The 2nd episode is about what happens physiologically and biologically when one is in a dying process.
  • The 3rd episode is about taking care of ourselves when we are supporting other people who are dying. I can’t emphasize enough how important this is for all of us.

Episode 2 and Episode 3 will be released separately in the future.


As a professional, Rachelle is an international counsellor, therapist and coach.

Many years ago, she personally experienced the slow decline of a loved one to death and was struck by how all support and attention seemed to focus on the dying and not on those closest to them.

She trained as a bereavement counsellor at a private hospice in Roodepoort, Johannesburg and gave her time to the dying and their families during the transition process and continued to support those left behind in finding their way back into their lives.

For those who did not wish for a traditional service to say farewell, she also created a non-denominational “Celebration of Life”, which she has led for many families and due to Corona now even by zoom link.

Having made her home in Switzerland, she has recently also completed Palliative Care support training there. She continues to offer spiritual care to those faced with their end-of-life and those closest to them on request.

The content of these episodes is thought-provoking and just touching the surface of this vast topic.

My wish is that we start the journey to understand death so we can live more fully.

Enjoy, share your thoughts with me, and share this episode with others too.


With love,
