19th March 2020 | Covent Garden
Join Jackie Kay the award-winning poet and national poet laureate of Scotland who will be in conversation with counselor and nurse of thirty years Janie Brown and discussing a new way of approaching how to live by considering the end of our lives in ‘Radical Acts of Love. How We Find Hope at the End of Life,.’
In this profound and moving Salon Janie will discuss with Jackie Kay twenty conversations that have reoccurred during her career as a nurse, each one offering insight into one of the most important but least-discussed experiences of our lives.
This Salon will be “hugely life-affirming” says Jackie Kay, “it will make you think not just of how you might want to approach death, but of how you might want to live. These conversations from the heart of dying are bold, gracious, often witty and full of love. They accompany you in the dark. Then they let the light in.”
Janie and Jackie are together at Salon to explore practical ways to facilitate the shift from feeling helpless about death to feeling hopeful; from fear to acceptance; from feeling disconnected and alone, to becoming part of the wider, collective story of all our mortality.
