A Blessing for Death

By John O'Donohue

     I pray that you will have the blessing of being consoled and sure about your own death.

     May you know in your soul that there's no need to be afraid.

     When the time comes may you be given every blessing and shelter that you need.

     May there be a beautiful welcome in the home you are going towards.

     You're not going somewhere strange. You're going back to the home that you never left.

     May you have a wonderful urgency to live your life to the full.

     May time compassionately and creatively transfigure everything that is negative that is within you and about you.

     And when you come to die, may it be after a long life. 

     May you be peaceful and happy and in the presence of those who really care for you.

     May your going be sheltered and your welcome assured.

     And may your soul smile in the embrace of your anam cara.

You guided all of us through unchartered territory, patiently listening and teaching us. Your reassurance and explanations gave us resilience. We will never forget you.

I would highly recommend the Death as a Part of Life Program. It was thought-provoking, enriching, and transformative for me. Jacki is very knowledgeable, offering valuable insights and sharing her stories.


Working with Jacki was transformative and exceeded my expectations. She is so down-to-earth, helpful and really knows her stuff. I look forward to continuing to explore this "work".
