“As I was savoring every word, I kept thinking how I wish I had this when I was a young adult, and I wonder, if someone had helped me dig deep into my own curiosities back then, would I have lived my life more fully? This is a brilliant guide, and a lovely opportunity to explore what matters most—allowing you to choreograph a life, and a death, on your terms.”
—Gabrielle Elise Jimenez, hospice nurse; end-of-life doula; conscious dying educator; and author of four books: Soft Landing, The Hospice Heart, At the Bedside, and What Would Gabby Say? -Gabrielle Elise Jimenez
