Written and read by end-of-life specialist, Alua Arthur, this meditation asks us to imagine what it is like to die, in order to bring about a deeper appreciation of being alive. It’s a life-affirming practice that’s best done in its entirety, in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. And it’s important to say, that practice isn’t recommended for those experiencing depression or having suicidal thoughts. If this is you, we gently advise not to do this meditation today. Here’s a link to a collection of mental health resources around the world for those feeling, depressed, suicidal or needing emotional support: https://www.headspace.com/mental-health-resources
