Nuala O’Faoilain Talks About Her Imminent Death

For everyone . . . with love.

Because we are all going to die.

One highly regarded Irish author, Nuala O’Faolain speaking on her experience of finding out she has terminal cancer.  The interview’s a few years old now, but timeless al the same.

Can I be so bold as to say, that it is really, REALLY, worth listening to this perspective.

Some things about it, and about Nuala, a famous Irish writer, really surprised me.  And some things felt deeply resonant.

Aparigraha.  The yogic practice of learning to let go …. of our ideas, our image of who we are, our relationship with space and time, our contribution to the manifest world, our breath as we let go of the exhalation and take a new inhalation . . .

It’s coming for us all  . . .   WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO PREPARE?


This is not some kind of scary dark side of the looming full moon.

Or maybe it is … but the reality is, none of us escape it, and we all have to face it alone, regardless of our set up.

So this is a poignant reminder, and maybe the beginnings of something meaningful and beautiful, if you choose to see it that way.

After all, how is life life, without death?
