In Conversation, Wendy Haynes and Chani Grieve

This One Precious Life

Last week, I had a wonderful conversation with Chani Grieve, the host of The Embodiment Journey. I am a guest speaker in Module 5 of her program, Trusting the Heart where she is introducing how a path with heart allows us to live and love fully, and also helps us prepare to die freely.  In this module she explores the inseparable relationship between life and death, and how an awareness of death can uplift our lives in surprising and liberating ways. Chani is also my co-facilitator on my program Celebrating this Precious Life: Honest Conversations about Death and Dying.

In this interview we talk about life, death, my cancer journey, my jealousy teacher… and much more.

“The first four components of Empathy – curiosity, presence, intention, and focus on universal needs – are completely silent. Only the fifth component, confirmation, involves any talking. Empathy is four parts listening and only one part talking.” (Ongo: Everyday Nonviolence)

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Attributed to Viktor E Frankl
