Remembering and Being Remembered: A Willow Workshop™

Hosted by licensed Willow EOL Educators, Jo-Anne Haun, End of Life Alternatives & Karen Hendrickson, Take the Journey

Thursday, February 25, 2021, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM PST

In Remembering and Being Remembered we’ll look at the who, what, how and why of remembering.

Why do you remember people who have died? How do you remember them and how are you impacted by either remembering or not remembering? This workshop will also remind us that we each have an impact on the lives of others.

In this workshop you will:

  • Dig into the heart of why you remember those who have died.
  • Explore what it is about being remembered that matters to you.
  • Be called to action to honor the memory of your deceased in ways that work for you.
  • Consider the impact your deceased have had on you and that you may have on others when you die.

Event is free for Death Doula Network of BC Members, and $25 for Non-Members

Mere Mortals - Our Stories Matter: Values, Wishes, and Who and What Matters Most

Hosted by Willow EOL Founders, Reena Lazar & Michelle Pante

Online via Zoom Tuesday, March 2 | 7:00pm-8:30pm

In partnership with North Vancouver District Public Library

Many of us know the benefits of preparing for our one-day, some-day death. But sometimes it’s hard to get started. All this planning-ahead business feels overwhelming and fragmented.

Based on three tools from Willow’s holistic and pragmatic workbook, 7 Tools for Making Sense of Life & Death, this event will guide you to explore the reality of your mortality in a fun and interactive workshop. Making sense of life and death before making practical arrangements will ensure that your end-of-life planning reflects your values and priorities. Whether you have days or decades left to live, thinking about and preparing for your death will inspire you to live your best life now.

In this workshop you will:

  • Articulate your core values and how they impact your living and dying.
  • Get present to your hopes and fears around your inevitable death.
  • Gain some clarity about who and what matter most.
  • Become inspired to get into action around how to live and die well.

Registration required. Register online or call 604-929-3727, ext. 8166.

Greening Your Death and Aligning Your Values: A Willow Workshop™

Hosted by licensed Willow EOL Educator, Bonnie Hoffmann, Pine Box Funerals

Friday, March 12, 2021, 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM PST

Many of us do our best to live mindfully and walk lightly on our planet. Yet, we tend to give little consideration to the environmental impact of what happens to us after we die. Partly, this is because we live in a culture fraught with death denial. Typically, when someone dies, a funeral provider is called to remove the person and arrange for either burial or cremation. Most people don’t take the time to understand the array of options within these two choices, or what alternatives are available in addition to these two choices. The good news is, many steps can be taken to green your death no matter where you live, and new options for greening your death are growing.

It’s Friday afternoon. Unwind the week with your favourite beverage or appetizer, and join me for 90 minutes of encouraging conversation and learning.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Consider and articulate what about greening your death matters to you.
  • Discover the environmental impacts of various choices for after-death care.
  • Learn about green options that may be available in your region.
  • Consider the best way to align your values with the choices you make.

Conscious Health, Personal Care and Final Wishes: A Willow Workshop™

Hosted by licensed Willow EOL Educator, Bonnie Hoffmann, Pine Box Funerals

Friday, April 9, 2021, 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM PDT

Either consciously or unconsciously, our past informs our present. Your previous experiences with illness, dying, death, grief and how someone was cared for after they died—including any planning that was or wasn’t in place—have undoubtedly shaped your personal desires and informed your sense of what’s possible and what’s not.

We all have hopes and fears about what might happen (to us and/or the people we leave behind) in the time leading up to our death, at the moment of our death, and after we die. Based on three tools from Willow’s holistic and pragmatic workbook, 7 Tools for Making Sense of Life & Death, Conscious Choices for Your Health, Personal Care and Final Wishes will ensure that your end-of-life planning reflects your values and priorities. Whether you have days or decades to live, thinking about and preparing for your death will change how you die and inspire you to live your best life now.

It’s Friday afternoon. Unwind the week with your favourite beverage or appetizer, and join me for 90 minutes of encouraging conversation and learning.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn how past experiences with death and dying can shape your own end-of-life plans.
  • Discover what is most important to you regarding your health and person-care wishes.
  • Become inspired to get into action around articulating your final wishes.

Register here: $20 Early Bird tickets until April 2
