The Dying Time: Jan. 9 Monthly Topic Class

The Landscape from Diagnosis to Death

My friend Marcy Westerling didn’t hide the fact of her cancer or of her impending death. Read more about her insistence that we join her in looking her illness and her death squarely in the eye.

How do we support the dying in our midst? What supports might we want for our dying time?

Join me January 9th for the fourth of my new Befriending Mortality Monthly Topic Classes. We’ll look at the landscape from diagnosis to death: palliative care and hospice, medical aid in dying (MAID) and voluntary stopping eating and drinking (VSED), assembling a care team and the role of an end-of-life doula, and the deaths that don’t go “according to plan.”

You are welcome to participate even if you haven’t attended the first three sessions in the series. Contact me if you’d like to receive info on when the full series will be offered again.

NEW ADDITION! MONTHLY DEATH CAFE: January–March I will host an optional, no-cost, open-format conversation for class participants to share with each other what’s up regarding befriending mortality. Dates and Zoom link will be sent to those registered for monthly classes.
