Welcome to Memoleaves

Memoleaves is a website devoted to sharing grief and end of life stories. As children of a Western perspective we have witnessed the secrecy and fear we hold collectively around everything to do with death. We are afraid to look at it, speak of it, as if by doing so we will some how bring it forth, so we hide it, sanitise it and often pretend it will never happen. But grieving it is a natural and important part of life.

We are meaning making creatures and we often make meaning through telling stories. When we are children it is a natural thing for us to listen to and tell stories. It is one way we come to understand and find guidance for ourselves, our world.

In more recent times we have come to value the telling of our birth stories. At memoleaves, we believe our stories of grief and death can be equally rich.  The insights and reflections that are birthed as the body dies we believe should be shared for all.

A life lived and a death died is worth telling.
