In conjunction with NIH and NLM, Sharon Public Library presents A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death and dying, green burials, digital estate planning, and more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.
Tonight, join Kristen Fumarola of Peaceful Passage at Home for a workshop-style presentation on the value of planning for death before a crisis occurs, plus which practical questions to consider while planning--including comfort and care preferences, environmental design near time of death, logistical details such as passwords and keys, funerary considerations, heirlooms or other special belongings, and more.
"Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it." --Haruki Murakami
