“Ready or Not~ Preparing for the Inevitable”

Julie Keon, Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, Death Educator & Caregiver

Every living thing will one day die. Knowing your options and being as prepared as one can be, is a wise and healthy alternative to living in denial and fear about the whole thing. It turns out that when you jump in and face the reality of the inevitable, you free up so much space and energy to dedicate to the art of living well. The goal is to get this done long before you are actually dying. Death comes suddenly sometimes so assuming there will be time "to get your affairs in order" is nothing more than wishful thinking.

This course will have participants actively exploring the practical preparations of death but also the emotional aspects that we are so masterful in denying. There will be exercises and homework to be completed each week so that by the end of the course, you will have created your own "Ready or Not Death Guide." This will be a gift to your family when your time comes. EVERYTHING they need to know about YOUR wishes for all aspects of YOUR dying, death and afterwards will be contained in this one resource. Guest speakers, meaningful conversations, up-to-date video clips and resources will all be a part of this unique and timely course. It is a very personal course which means that participants attend in preparation for their own deaths.

Death Café and Death Over Dinner

Julie Keon, Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, Death Educator & Caregiver

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.' A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. Death Cafes are always offered: on a not for profit basis, in an accessible, respectful and confidential space, with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action and alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and CAKE!

Bring a friend and experience something different and new!
