Here’s a radical question- Have you made friends with your death?
It’s kind of a scary question until you realize that if you begin to answer it, you begin to create liberty and joy as never before. We are conditioned in countless ways not to acknowledge that our death is our constant ally and revelatory friend.
Ask yourself, if I died while reading this where would my thoughts go?
As we have both had near death experiences we know that questions show up. We know that we each have the power to create our life and a joy filled death. And our awareness of death gives us a joy pathway even in really hard circumstances.
Making friends with the great truth of our death is the root of all creative life fulfilling liberty. We make a place at the table for the life inside our death so that we can always stay updated on the path of our life and the choices we make.
Want to live in great whole loving liberty? Start to make friends with your death and your future will be filled with bright knowing.

Death: Ally or Enemy?
Please let us know in the comments section below.
Susan’s father, Don Perkins, and I on the surface were very different men. We were brought together out of our mutual love for Susan. And yet, in my mind we were starkly contrasted people- I, the creative educator and medical intuitive and Don an international corporate leader.
One of the great gifts Don gave me was that I absolutely learned to follow was the promptings of my heart and not the noise in my mind.
To me it was a surprising lesson to learn from a man who was very successful in the corporate world. He was highly principled, a mentor to business leaders and a man respected for asking hard questions.
David and I were given a rare and loving gift during the month of March. We have been in the US caring for my father Donald Perkins who passed away Wednesday March 25th at the Age of 88.
We have had to cut back on our client load and workshops and want you all to know we will be back to our normal work schedule starting Wednesday April 1st.
Thank you to all who have supported us during this time so that we could be with our family.
Dying in Style
Don and Susan
My Father took the entire family on many amazing trips around the world. As he was dying, he decided everyone would gather for the Last Family Trip but this time we flew to Chicago to be with him
His wishes were that we celebrate and enjoy our family time together.
My Dad always liked to have a plan and to be in control and like his life he pulled off his death in great style. He didn’t want to suffer and thought it would be perfect to die in his sleep, and by golly he did just that.
What if making friends with death gave us even more vitality, joy, love and freedom?
We have seen people fight and struggle with the powerful truth that we are not designed to live permanently in these bodies. When we become ill, whether it is gravely or just a cold, what shows up is the powerful habit of looking away from and fighting the presence of our evolutionary ally death. When we let go of the fight and become friends, we create less friction and more ease in our lives. Of course, having a will to live and thrive is a symptom of our love of life itself.
Would you believe that a person will die from total lack of sleep sooner than from starvation? Death will occur in about 10 days without sleep, while starvation takes a few weeks. Even though we might be well fed, it’s possible we’re starving for sleep.
During this time of challenge and change, it’s really important when we’re sleeping to actually get rest. Here are some tips.
