Special guest Teresa Lyons, a registered nurse with Hospice of Petaluma, shares from her life and thirty years of experience caring for dying adults and children. We are a “death-denying culture”, Teresa maintains, to our great loss. Facing our mortality, not running from end-of-life involvement with those we love, can reveal what is most valuable and important in life and relationships. Sustaining a decades-long career of empathic caregiving in deeply painful situations, such as Teresa’s, takes skill and dedication, and attitudes of gratitude and hope.
