Connect! mid-week group zoom session #3, La Verne Church of the Brethren

The Culture of Dying:
Because we had such a positive response to the Dia de Los Muertos celebration Sunday, October 31 and learning about Latin American countries’ approaches to death and dying, we thought it might be helpful to look at how we in America approach death and dying.  So to that end, we invite you to participate in our virtual 3 part series: The Culture of Dying, where we can explore our own experiences.
What you will learn:
How varied our experiences of death may have been for each of us.  We will talk about how we remember and honor those we have lost and how much they impact our ideas about death and dying. We will become more informed about all the end-of-life options available in the US. We will learn about an additional option, medical aid in dying, available in California and 10 other states in the US.  We hope to create a very safe space where we can share our experiences and our hopes for a peaceful death and how we might want to be remembered.
Presenter: Lynne Calkins, Nurse Practitioner, retired, and constituent of LVCOB
