“It won’t kill you to talk about it!”

A Workshop on Connecting with Loved Ones about Their End-of-Life Wishes

As strange as it may sound, cultivating an awareness of the reality of our own mortality can be a profound spiritual practice. We all know that we are going to die, but the world acts like aging and death are secrets to be closely guarded.  Reject such harmful (and relatively new) social mores!  Normalizing conversation about what matters most to us about living — and dying — is a gift we can give to the people we love and ourselves. Talking and planning together is one of the best ways to insure that our loved ones live and die with dignity.  This 5-week workshop will prepare you to talk with your parents (and possibly with your own children) about making the right decisions ‘when the time comes.’

Join Caroline East, our Summer Parish Associate and Chaplain at Sharon Towers, every Sunday in June.

Workshops will be held at 10 a.m. in the Parlor of Trinity Presbyterian Church.  

This program is designed for people in their 30’s-50’s, but all are welcome.
