End of Life Planning Offered in two weekends by Margo Chamberlain
Let’s look at the very important (not yet urgent, but very important) issues around our own goodbyes. It’s a difficult conversation and when done in a small group of people who are similarly motivated, it can be one of the most fulfilling conversations of our lives.
You will gather all the information (and you’d be surprised what is included) needed for your own death certificate. You will get clearer about the disposition of your body; you will write your own obituary and a legacy letter. We will talk about wills and powers of attorney and what to do with our stuff before our families are saddled with it. We will inquire into grief and grieving. Best of all, this conversation is likely to interrupt the denial we may have about our own death.
We will meet four times for three hours each to read, discuss and to really truly no kidding begin making your end of life plans. Plans that are written down and on paper (or electronic) and which can be handed to the people who will be carrying them out.
