I thought I would share a little bit about what I do when I’m away from my desk.
I have just joined a Companion Voices choir in my local area.
We are singers who sing at the bedside of those at end of life.
Last night it was my turn to experience how it feels to be sung to.
I found it such a moving and emotive experience. I felt like the voices of the singers lifted me up. There was a period of silence after the singing and there was a real feeling of holding and nurture in the silence.
We are just at the beginning of exploring this gift of service. It feels like it will be such an honour to be able to sing to those at the end of life. Please contact me if you’d like to find out more.
