Episode 4

The Reality of Your Mortality

Why are we so scared to talk about death? This is one of the questions I asked my guests Michelle Pante and Reena Lazar. Michelle and Reena co-founded WillowEoL about 1.5 years ago and are changing the conversation around death. Michelle as a licensed funeral director and hospice volunteer and Reena in all aspects of community and family-led deathcare – they share a passion for using the conversation around death as a pathway to growth and healing.
