“We are grateful for the progress being made in life prolonging medical treatments and procedures. Death, however, is still inevitable, and it is not simply a medical event. Our work helps individuals and families view death as natural, personal and spiritual. How we die becomes part of our legacy. We know that our “Speaking of Dying” work is unique, and have had over 275 people participate in our workshops. Please help us grow this positive dying movement” — Trudy James, Heartwork founder
Informed, advanced planning for death and dying creates better, more meaningful endings. Knowing what you want for your own death is a gift to yourself and those you leave behind.
Facilitator Jennifer Jones is a Heartwork Trainer; professional care manager and owner of Conscious Aging Eldercare. She is also the Director and Videographer of the film “Speaking of Dying.”.
Participants will have time to recognize the challenges in today’s medical environment, to face their fears, to learn about the resources available to them, to make choices that reflect their own deepest values, and to document those choices in an Advanced Healthcare Directive.
