Everything We’ve Learned About Life + Living from Death + Dying
About the event
This event will be available to watch on-demand during the festival.
Hot on the heels of their new book We All Know How this Ends, we’re delighted to welcome end-of-life doula Anna Lyons and progressive funeral director Louise Winter (AKA Life.Death.Whatever) to teach us how and why we all need to think about death in a radically different way.
Working with death and dying, Anna and Louise hear hundreds of heartbreaking and heartwarming stories of life, love and loss. These stories have changed their own lives, helped them to work out what they value, and a confirmed a few things about what it means to be alive.
In the finale of their book, they share ‘The Mother of all Lists’ detailing everything they have learned about life, death and everything in between. In this interview with Salma El-Wardany, they will discuss the golden nuggets contained therein.
Anna Lyons is an end-of-life doula and Louise Winter is a progressive funeral director. Together they are the team behind Life. Death. Whatever. Their joint mission is to redesign the dialogue around death and dying, and as a result, shift people’s ideas of life, living, illness, funerals and grief. Ultimately, they believe this will provide you with a more empowered approach to whatever you’re going through. They believe that death is a normal part of life and dying is part of living. Acknowledging and accepting that one day we will die is fundamental to living a full life.
