Silvi commented on Music at the End of Life: Songs for the Dying

this project feels so worthy of time and attention and space to open up what music translates of hearts and spirit that sometimes just words can't. 

teaming up with hospice to train people seems a great idea. no need to completely reinvent wheels and it anyone doing this work will want and need some training in holding space and being present with what's in the room, especially if they don't have experience with death and dying. 

resolution care (located in humboldt county) is an organization that works with people at the end of life and may be a great resource for support and guidance as this project builds itself into being. 

also strikes me there could be partnership between musicians and writers and therapists and counselors--people who have experience honing in on stories and holding emotional/complex experiences in the service of healing. 

thank you for pursuing this project. excited to see it come to light.
