all stories from this project:
InhaleExhale: Kristin Meyer, Death Doula
"We’re really animal creatures at heart. We need to see with our eyes, certainly children need to see with their eyes. If you told them their grandma died and they never saw their grandma's dead body, it's very hard for them to understand what that means. Until you actually see a body without a life in it, then you really understand what that means. And I think as adults, we actually still need to see a body sometimes in order to understand that it's gone and that it actually helps us process the information faster. To take it in just that pause that little bit of time that we get to see."
InhaleExhale: Rozanne Rants on Death with Dignity
"I have a practice that I go imagine that I'm on the moon. I have a special place where I sit there, and I look at the earth from that distance. I can get magnify the earth and see every little thing that's going on, or I can go back farther out and see the whole world as one. And it gives me a different feeling about being a person on this planet. It's just a place where I am for a while, and I'm not going to try to make it something that it isn't."
Stories Coming Soon!
New Podcast Series Coming Soon!
“The soul is contained in the human voice,” says writer Jorges Luis Borges. Over the past few months, Window Seat Media staff and volunteers have been recording the voices of our friends, neighbors, and family members as they reflect on their thoughts and experiences with death and dying. We will share these stories at our November 16th Community Confluence and through a new podcast series we will launch in early 2020. Stay tuned!
