Advice for Future Corpses: A Practical Perspective on Death and Dying
Registration closes on May 24.
"Grief is a story that must be told, over and over....
Grief is the breath after the last one." -- Sallie Tisdale
This workshop is based on Tisdale's understanding of the heartbreaking, beautiful, terrifying, confusing, absurd, and even joyful experiences that accompany the work of dying.
We will explore:
- A good death
- Preparing a death plan
- Advanced directives
- Organ and tissue donation
- Assisted death
All too often, people avoid preparing for death, so when the time comes, family and friends are left in a macabre and fearful chaos. We must cultivate a frank and open-hearted acceptance of this precious part of life. With acceptance comes the ability to embrace the work that must be done, long before one's final days on the planet. Participants will leave with concrete tools to put their affairs in order, fulfilling obligations to family and friends, and laying the path for a peaceful transition.Fee: $85
