Event description

Description

For anyone who’s ready for frank discussion, good storytelling and new perspectives on death and dying.

Yes, we’re talking about a taboo subject that happens to all of us. Beach United Church is hosting four dinners where the conversation is about death and dying. On four Wednesday evenings a small group of people will be served a light dinner and then weigh into some heavy conversations. Each dinner features a discussion leader with special expertise: a hospice specialist, a doctor, a spiritual guide, and a mindfulness educator. They will share their stories and knowledge, exploring with participants the big questions.

At this session, on NOVEMBER 28, Teri Henderson will lead our discussion of mindfulness through death and dying. Teri is a social worker and mindfulness educator who provides support to individuals, families and health-care providers at the Kensington Health Centre, Wellspring Cancer Support Network and University of Toronto. In her private practice she uses a mindfulness-based approach to help patients through both chronic and terminal illnesses.

There’s no admission charge, but a donation will be requested at each session. You decide the amount.

This registration is for the November 28th session only.

If you'd like to attend any of the other sessions (on October 3, October 17 or November 7), please complete a separate registration for each one.

A light dinner is included. Space is limited.
