Saying Goodbye: Preparing for Death
Come to this zoom meeting movie night to watch and discuss When You Die’s “Saying Goodbye: Preparing for Death.”
Addressing our mortality head on, viewers are guided through fear into honest conversation about the questions most of us avoid: How can we talk about death? What is a good death? What quality of life is enough for your? Where do we want to die? What is a conscious death? Could we have one? As hard as it is to believe, we know, in the depths of our being, death will come – either through a diagnosis, or from a sudden accident. Don’t wait until you’re in crisis to decide how you want to be cared for. Difficult as it is, making decisions now about what we want when facing the inevitable, is a great kindness to yourself, and to your loved ones. Through stories from professionals who have spent their careers at the bedside, Saying Goodbye opens the door to good conversation about what is possible as we pass from this life.
