Sydney – In Conversation : Death & Dying
In Conversation : Death & Dying
May 27th 2017, North Sydney Community Centre, Sydney
Bring an open mind and an open heart to a day of conversation about dying and death. Understanding the transition from wellness through illness, palliative care, our right to choose our ‘moment’, dying, and then the ‘what next?’ for those who are left behind, is a conversation we don’t often have the opportunity to engage in. This day, imbued with a gentle dose of humour, covers the legal, practical, realistic, emotional and sacred choices we can make about life and death.
