Making Peace with End-of-Life:
An Interactive, Experiential Workshop
As elders, we are bombarded with advertising messages and social cues that prompt us to be active, look younger, and stay healthy and vibrant. What this cultural messaging neglects to tell us is how to navigate one of the most sacred journeys we will ever make... the transition from aging to end-of-life.
In this unique workshop you will learn how to create a more positive relationship with death and grief as you face the loss of loved ones and the reality of your own eventual departure from physical life.
In an intimate, experiential learning environment,
using art and music therapy processes
and interactive group work,
we will explore these topics and more:
. Practical preparations for end-of-life (DNR, POLST, Advance Directives)
. How death is addressed in our modern medical system
. What is hospice, and how does it differ from palliative care?
. Family dynamics in end-of-life and bereavement
. Spiritual and religious issues
. Medical Aid in Dying/Death w Dignity
. Creative rituals and ceremonies for death, dying and grieving
