In this celebratory week of the winter solstice and Christmas, we look at the great mysteries of birth and death. Everyone receives these ‘presents’; what does it mean to see them as gifts of equal weight? Today we explore the theme of living and dying with Nathalie and share stories of the Mission Hospice. She will be bringing some of her handcrafted Life & Death Story Quilts into the studio, and share the remarkable journey she takes with those who pass over, and the inspiration they impart to her to celebrate the lives and deaths in this unique and caring way.
