For this episode we interview Mary Kazanowski, PhD, former professor at St. Anselm College in Manchester and an Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner with 30 years’ experience as a hospice nurse. What can you learn after spending this much time supporting patients near the end of life? Mary has some great insights!
Marianne opens by introducing the Five Invitations, which we will be talking about more in depth in future episodes:
- Don’t wait
- Welcome everything and push nothing away
- Bring your whole self to the experience
- Find a place of rest in the middle of things
- Cultivate a “don’t know” mind
Mary shares her experiences as provider for patients at the end of life and things she learned from supporting people at the end of life for so many years, such as valuing relationships, health, and not letting small things affect her.
