Don‘t Ignore the Elephant

Kathryn Mannix: What happens when we die?

November 10, 2021

Kathryn Mannix is one of the UK’s leading palliative care specialists who carefully and tenderly encourages us to talk and learn more about the ultimate elephant in the room - death.


Kathryn’s written two brilliant books on the subject - With the End in Mind

And her latest book - Listen


Kathryn is also a patron of End of Life Doula UK, an invaluable resource if you’re looking after someone who’s dying.


Kathryn and I would love to know if this episode helped you have a difficult conversation. Let us know using the hashtag #DITE.


Kathryn’s entry for the Jar of Joy was celebrating her dad’s 90th birthday.  What are you putting in the jar this week?
