I had the pleasure of interviewing Jessie Williams of The Groundswell Project, based in Australia, a few weeks ago. Jessie shares her poignant and beautiful story that demonstrates her passion to this project, which is working in a similar way to Before I Go Solutions.



Listen in below to find out:

  • What is a deathie and are you one?
  • How death can be a work of art
  • Jessi’es own very poignant story of how she came to this work through the death of her baby Monty
  • Why describing ourselves as ‘fighting cancer’ only perpetuates the battle – and what to do differently
  • Difference between death and dying
  • Can you be dying without suffering?
  • What is suffering?

And discover the wise words from Jessie’s mum.  Just half an hour, there are so many gems in here, so do listen and enjoy!

    I am definitely a wide awake ‘Deathie’. Our leaving is as fascinating as our arriving. In fact I remember often hearing the expression , ‘One in. One out.’ uttered knowingly after either event..when older women were discussing events. Thank you both for reaching out and sharing new developments across the globe. Illuminating developments. Long overdue. 🕊

      Good to be reminded of the ‘one in, one out’ quote Dorothy, thank you. It’s something that we really don’t want to admit, generally speaking. Appies ot declutteirng too!
