Description

Community Deathcaring: What's it about and why does it matter?

When someone dies now-a-days, there tends to be a default set of practices for what happens and how that person is cared for. Those practices usually involve a lot of outsourcing and little meaningful involvement of family and friends.

This typical way of doing things evolved over time and became "standard" practice.

Across Canada (and around the world), there is a growing community deathcare movement centred around the desires of people to get back to caring for our own dead in meaningful and holistic ways. Standard and normal are not the same things n'est pas?

Please join us for an informative and inspiring evening of exploring community deathcaring: what's it about and why does it matter?

Our program includes:

  • A presentation by Ms. Ngaio Davis, Founder and Managing Director of KORU Cremation | Burial | Ceremony. Ngaio will help us understand how we got to where we are today and set the context for understanding the drivers of the community deathcare movement.

  • Dynamic discussion and personal exploration facilitated by Reena Lazar and Michelle Pante of Willow End of Life Planning & Education.

This community event is free and all are welcome so please help spread the word!

Registration is required so we can manage seats and treats.

This gathering is an open-hearted and open-minded place to explore, in community, the reality of our shared mortality. Please join us for a journey of self-reflection, conversation and connection.

With love and light,

Reena + Michelle
