    I was very impressed by both your work with the dying as well as the written works that you have published. This type of compassionate education is much needed today and I am certain that many people will be profoundly impacted by your writings, Stan.

    I, too, work with the dying as an independent counselor/consultant north of Boston in Massachusetts. I facilitate support groups for suicide survivors, also as well as present trainings on suicide prevention. I hold an MEd in counseling and beyond in the area of death, loss and transition (Thanatology) and use reiki and sound therapy to assist people and companion animals peacefully through the dying process. There is no greater honor to me than to support others in their most fragile time of need.

    I taught elementary school my whole life, but retired early and wandered into a whole new world. As a teacher I also wore two hats often when a sudden death crisis impacted the school and developed a crisis protocol for the system and did many in-service trainings on death and loss related issues, so it was natural for me to go into this solely upon retirement.

    My hat is off to you for all that you do. It is not easy work, but so gratifying. I wish you well on your path.

      Thank you for your kind words Ruthie,

      There are times I feel as if I’m preaching to the congregation. Hopefully, people will buy Leaning Into Sharp Points, who otherwise would shy away from these important issues.
