Creative Dying and Me
I am a palliative care nurse and permaculture designer with a spiritual self which is deeply rooted in Earth-based seasons and patterns. Issues relating to death and dying are intrinsic to most aspects of my life.
A core part of my experience as a permaculture practitioner and activist is to design for as good a quality of life for land and people as possible. However, within my work and life, I frequently observe that how we die in Britain is detrimental to our care of the Earth, each other and how we share resources fairly.
Exploring the three ethics used in permaculture - Earth Care, Fair Shares and People Care - can help us to understand how permaculture can help to ensure the way we die also embraces a resilience-building, healing approach.
