Life, Death, and a Whole Lot of Gratitude From the Heart with Rachel Brathen

    • Society & Culture

It’s heartbreaking but it’s inevitable - at some point in our lives we will all move through grief, loss and death. If this is close to your heart right now, today’s episode holds a beautiful epiphany for you.
After a morning paddle boarding on the lake, Rachel was left feeling so alive. Death has felt very present in her life lately - but sometimes, it’s that closeness with death that allows you to be deeply present in every moment. She shares the story of her dog, Laika, and the scary experience that brought her to the emergency vet this week. As Laika nears the end of her life, Rachel discusses how to navigate grief, how to gently broach the topic with your children, and how to not waste your one precious life. 
There is aliveness all around you, from the plants in your garden to the buzzing bees and the people and pets you love the most. Tune in to remember what it is that you truly live for.
