We were taught that ‘No one needs to die alone: Lani Leary taught us about living and dying. We share our flowers

Beloved Flower Lover,

A beautiful woman came in ten days ago. Her school time friend had just been diagnosed with terminal cancer.   We  did what we could and suggested flowers , flowers, flowers for her as a carer first.

She talked honestly about guilt, regret and her burial arrangements.

We were reminded about Lani leary who is the author of, ‘No one has to die alone’. Dr. Leary,  specializes in work with chronically ill, dying, and bereaved clients.  She has worked for more than 25 years as a psychotherapist in private practice, as a chaplain in the intensive care unit of a hospital, and as a counselor in 8 hospices across the country.

She is the author of Healing Hands, an internationally best-selling audio tape about therapeutic touch and complimentary approaches to pain management.  She is certified in grief therapy, EMDR, hypnotherapy, and Critical Incident Stress Management.

We see them both in the light and we see her friend enter the light and smile. That is our gift.

About Thelondonflowerlover

Welcome to The London Flower Lover. We are florists who create floral collections to tell your real life story. With colour and texture, we take floristry into an entirely new direction based on the challenges and joys of your life. Offering what we call 'heart based floristry' we use style, fashion, and life situations and merge them with heart based lifestyle support. This inspiring blend creates so much more for those who love flowers. Using flowers in the traditional way of course, but always using flowers to open up a floralicious conversation about relationships of all kinds. We are a sort of work in progress of compassionately confirming how we are already on the inside, the love we want to see out in the world. That is mission of The London Flower Lover. So saying yes to recognising that is at the heart of this blog and using flowers to honour that inner world is how we use the beauty of giving and receiving flowers. This blog is your blog. It's as much about cultivating your heart, as it is about enjoying the physical beauty of flowers. It offers story, poems and video to reflect the life you actually live whilst showing beautifully inspiring collections of flower designs. Hand-tied bouquets, arrangements and more.
