Yes! Empathy is key. Although we all will face death, we cannot know what others feels when it is their time but we can be empathetic because we will also be in their shoes one day. Reframing the experience of death and dying can definitely be enhanced by use of analogous ideas.
Morgan thank you for sharing the work the end-of-life doulas are doing at Mt. Sinai! This is exactly what I am talking about in my post. People need a space to be heard and listening to someone's reflections can be transformative to all parties involved.
