LET'S CHAT ABOUT DEATH
Welcome to a practical and spiritual approach to befriending death & dying.
With Leigh Ann Mertens & Kevin Watt
STARTING JANUARY 21st, 2024
The Let's Chat About Death course provides an opportunity to investigate what’s important in our life and make changes that reflect that.
We'll bring curiosity as we explore and get intimate with our relationship around death and dying. We’ll get practical with the logistics, because at the end of the day, clear communication is the greatest gift we can leave our loved ones.
The course consists of six classes, in which all participants meet with the Befriending Death team every two weeks on zoom. After each session, you will receive materials and assignments to digest and complete on your own.
You will be placed in a small buddy group in between the large group sessions for deeper discussions and to help hold each other accountable to getting your work done. If you're signing up with friends or family, consider if you would like to be in the same group or participate in a group with others. There are benefits to both.
6 Sessions (90 minutes each) With Facilitator & all participants online with instructive talks, dynamic discussion, guided meditations, reflections and small breakout sessions
