There is so much that we can do in advance of death to prepare ourselves inwardly for our own death and for the death of our loved ones. In our society there is a great deal of fear and anxiety around death and this leads us to postpone those critical conversations that help us to make sense of death and make good decisions at end of life.
The more time we take to learn about and reflect on the key decisions that we may be facing at death the more likely we are to be able to engage our loved ones in those decisions and understand the implications of each of the decisions. The more involved we and our loved ones are in the process of dying the more meaningful and transformative the experience is for everyone.

I have been invited to teach an online course on Advance Planning for the BEyond Yonder Virtual School for Community Deathcaring in Canada, which is led by Cassandra Yonder.
I am filming this talk as part of that course. I am opening it up for local death care practitioners to come and be part of the taping.
I will need to know in advance if you are intending to come so that we know the space is large enough. Please register ASAP.
