‘Coping with the mysteries of life and death’ – Gail O’Brien
Gail O’Brien has experienced deep loss in her life including the death of her husband Dr. Chris O’Brien in 2009 and her eldest son Adam who died from an epileptic fit two years later. Before he died, Chris and Gail dreamt of creating a holistic and comprehensive cancer centre at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney. After his death, Gail was determined his dream would become a reality and the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse opened at RPA in September 2013. In the first of the Eremos Winter Wisdom Series, Gail will explore what she has learned of the mystery of life and death and the will to survive and thrive amidst adversity. For those attending, Gail’s story opens up the opportunity to reflect on these themes in their own lives.
