How do we navigate such transitions with love and compassion for those we care for, while dealing with the inevitable maelstrom of emotions, thoughts, and feelings that are natural and inevitable? Drawing on her years of experience in spiritual healing, counseling and hospice care, Nina Impala shares stories of her experiences as a hospice volunteer and how those experiences prepared her for the final days of her own parents. Dearly Departed is about learning to see death and loss with the eyes of the heart instead of the eyes of the head to find peace, comfort, and hope for ourselves and those we love.
