Theme of the Show: Birth and Death: The Greatest Gifts Guest: Nathalie Millar Director of Bereavement Services Mission Hospice Society – www.MissionHospice.com Lead Host: Abegael Fisher-Lang
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.

November is the month of remembering those who have passed over, and on this Remembrance Day, we celebrate the light of our love for all those who have passed. Ross Waddell of the Canadian Centre for Death Education, an affiliate of the International Association for Near Death Studies, will be our honoured guest. The stories of those who have experienced Near Death are rich and varied, and today we will hear some of those stories and discover just how prevalent this threshold experience is for people of all ages and backgrounds.
