Talking About Death Won't Kill You
Join us for three facilitated community conversations about your plans for death through sharing and experiential exercises. We will explore dos and don'ts, good healthcare agent qualities, and what specific plans and actions you may want to make ahead of time. Expect lively discussions, laughter, and support, as we discuss what we want and what we don’t want for those final days.
• April 5th at 7 p.m. – Let’s Talk About Death: In this session we’ll explore, in both small and large groups, what we wish for at the end of our life. We’ll also explore the importance of choosing the best person (or people) to act as a healthcare agent for you or your loved one.
• April 12 at 7 p.m. - Let’s Get Our Affairs in Order: In this session, we’ll explore how to create a book or file that includes all of the important paperwork that will need to be on hand as you are in your final days and after your death. Why leave the experience to chance (and why put the pressure on your loved ones) when you can make your wishes known now, and your passwords all in one place? Creating a “death book” can provide a roadmap for your loved ones and help you clarify, even more, how you want the end to play out.
• April 19 at 7 p.m. - Let’s Share the Love: What do you want to say and to whom before you go? Leaving a letter of love to the most important people in your life can be powerful both for you and the recipient. Together, we’ll make a comprehensive list and get started on these important legacy letters.
Important: These are not estate planning workshops nor are they lectures. Instead, they are guided conversations to encourage individual action and end of life decisions that may lead to reflections and further action with legal experts, health care providers, spiritual care advisors and family members.
