Darity Wesley: On Death, Dying, And Letting Go

Season 1, Ep. 20

Welcome to Yoga Unplugged Conversations

A podcast dedicated to helping you grow, thrive and gracefully make tough life decisions, so you can lead a happier, healthier life.

Host Sarah Burchard invites special guests on the show to deep dive into real life issues, providing tools and philosophies to help you navigate them with greater ease.

Sarah is a yogi, freelance writer, natural foods chef and certified health coach passionate about self-development, yoga and promoting local businesses and food through her writing, farmers market tours and farm-to-table events under the name, The Healthy Locavore.

In today’s final episode of Yoga Unplugged Conversations I’m talking to Darity Wesley.

Darity is the author of “How To Be The Real You,” “You Can Transform Your Life,” and the eBook “Tame That Monkey Mind.”

As a self-proclaimed “Death Diva” she helps her clients put death into perspective, so they can make peace with it in their lives, and has mastered the art of caring for loved ones in their final days. 

Darity has dedicated her life to helping others navigate tough life challenges, so that they can live a more peaceful life, full of faith, confidence and acceptance.  

Today Darity and I are discussing Death.

We talk about…

●      How she has helped loved ones prepare to die

●      Why she doesn’t fear death

●      The 5 stages of grieving

●      The way she copes with loss

●      The bright side of death

What if instead of trying to avoid death we allowed ourselves to grieve it fully and get comfortable with the inevitable, so that we can welcome it into our lives with grace?

What if death became not scary at all?

We explore this and more in today's final episode of Yoga Unplugged Conversations.

It has been a joy, an honor and a dream come true to host this show for you. I hope it has helped bring clarity and comfort to your life. I know it has for me. 

Thank you so much for listening to the show this past year. Best of luck with every life challenge you will encounter.
