Living Well Dying Well – A 6 Week Online Program

October 26 @ 6:30 pm - November 30 @ 8:30 pm

Living Well, Dying Well is a multi-generational, soulful program exploring the ways we live and die.

Living Well – Dying Well

A Multi-generational, Soulful & Experiential Approach to exploring the ways we live and die in modern times

Living Well – Dying Well is a 6-week online opportunity to tend end-of-life through courageous conversations, Advanced Care Planning, personal and collective inquiry, and the shared wisdom of seasoned facilitators and all participants. An invitation to grow and strengthen our capacity to live well, while mindfully tending end-of-life in a safe and supportive peer-based learning circle.

Drawing on cross-cultural wisdom, practical resources, embodied experience and collective insights, Living Well, Dying Well is an evolving program for envisioning and experiencing a respectful and eco-responsible approach to end of life. As a participant, you contribute to this growing conversation and become an integral part of re-visioning what it means to meet aging, living and dying with vulnerability, courage, beauty and grace.

In particular, we care that you have an Advanced Care Plan completed, as well as other important documents, and that you are well informed in regard to choices you will need to make as you consciously meet the end of life.
