Who is Glynis German?
Ask yourself, what kind of person do you want to deal with when you’re at your most vulnerable? I would want someone like me!
Someone with an open heart who’s ready to listen to the other’s point of view. Demonstrated by my work with the volunteer association DIME to which I belong since 2009 visiting the terminally ill at the paliative ward at Hospital Joan March, Mallorca.
Empathetic, organised, creative, compassionate, and focused, someone who is solution oriented. In the confusion surrounding illness and death, having support from someone who knows what to do is crucial. When that someone is approachable and gets right to the point, you have that secure feeling that you’re going to be okay.
Trail blazer, a pioneer in many ways, ahead of her time! Founder of past endeavours such as Creative Women and Binissalem Peace Centre. In 2015, the global movement of the Death Café was brought to Mallorca. An important movement which gathers people from all walks of life on a regular basis to consider the one guarantee facing us all, namely our death!
Inspirational, empowering, visionary, courageous, willing to try and succeed! In the midst of a global pandemic a week long, nationwide festival on dying, death and beyond became a reality. The aim was to invite people to talk about the inevitable with a series of conferences, film nights and a fair involving those working in this sector. All with no budget and during a pandemic! The first ever Giving Life to Death Festival 2020 was an outstanding success!
Charismatic, hard-working, welcoming, funny, witty, loving, friendly, sincere, authentic and enthusiastic! I don’t pretend to be your best friend but these qualities will allow you to relax long enough to share your story. And on the day of the funeral, I shall bring your loved one back to life for a little while longer so you can say your goodbyes.
Glynis came to our house and I felt like she understood.
On the day of the funeral she brought my mum to life and afterwards,
she gave us the ceremony booklet.
When I feel down or am missing mum, I open it up
and enjoy remembering the very best of my mum!
(Just 15 years old when their mother died of cancer)
