Connect in Place: Talking about dying
January 12th @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Join facilitator Andrea Cano on Tuesday, January 12 from 5 to 6:30 pm to discuss death, a universal event that transcends many of the differences between us. While we focus most on the quality of our lives and well-being, we rarely talk about the quality of our dying and deaths. Now in its fifth year, Oregon Humanities’ Talking about Dying program offers an opportunity to reflect on the stories and cultural influences that shape our thinking about this theme and to share perspectives and ideas with fellow community members. During the program, participants explore questions such as: How might our family, traditions, rituals, religion, and beliefs shape how we think about death? What would a ‘good death’ look like for us—what do we want—and not want—at the end of our life? What are the essential considerations? Register here.
