What is Sacred Death? Listen on I Am Alice Podcast
This week I get to chat to Catherine Shovlin about her book Sacred Death and how we can our approach towards death can be transformed and we are able to embrace life more!
Catherine has always had a hunger for discovery. Travelling to nearly 100 countries, working with big business, small business, community organizations, the arts sector and independently she loves to gather experiences from diverse sources to inform her world view.
Over the last few years, once her three kids were safely through school, she has reinvented herself, studying healing and counselling to deepen her understanding in these areas. She finds much scope for cross-pollination between the different worlds she has been lucky enough to experience; from refugee camps to board rooms, kindergartens to mental health institutions, hospices to community centers.
Nowadays she enjoys a semi-nomadic life adventure in Bali, Sydney and London with her partner Lawrence. As well as writing she works in the sustainability sector and as a death coach.
