Subjects:Dying & Bereavement
D.I.P.ism the transition of death is a process that starts before the diagnosis and continues way past the moment we lay our bodies aside. Death is part of life and is to be recognised as an essential process that we will all encounter at some time. 
In the West, death is largely feared and so society rarely supports conversations about loss, it seems to be a taboo subject until someone you love dies. 
Likewise advanced preparations are seldom made for our passing, nor that of those we love. So when we do experience loss, we often find we are not adequately equipped with the tools that help us to navigate this period of deep sadness.
