The Reality of Your Mortality Planning Checklist
Pragmatic and heart-centred end-of-life planning can light up your life and connect you with what matters most. The best time to plan for the end of your life is now. When you consciously contemplate and connect with others around your inevitable and unpredictable death, it will change how you die—and how you live, right here, right now, and for the rest of your life. This interactive presentation will introduce and explore WILLOW’s holistic, nine-point, end-of-life planning checklist and participants will dive into the suggested starting point: making sense of life and death.
Departure Directions: Death Education that Informs, Inspires and Empowers
Informative and inspiring death education starts with personal reflection, including how you make sense of your finite life and your inevitable death. In a safe, creative and fun workshop you’ll identify your core values and explore your relationship with death, discover five core factors that influence your decision making for how you’ll be cared for after you die, including ecological + social impact, and begin to craft your personal set of Departure Directions, WILLOW’S term for your written instructions or guidelines—determined by your values, beliefs and priorities—for how you wish to be cared for and remembered after you die.
Legacy, Love Letters + Heart Wills
Wake-up before your time’s up! No matter what kind of life you live, how much money you have, or what you think of your accomplishments, consider that you have a legacy. Inside a thoughtful and dynamic group process you will reflect on your life and your legacy, identify who and what matters most to you and begin to write lasting messages for those you love and future generations.
Reality of our Mortality Learning Circle
This RoM Learning Circle is an example of a public or community-based event facilitated by Reena and Michelle. Sponsored by a municipally-owned and operated cemetery and attended at no cost by the general public, this two-hour death-education workshop is considered a public service by our client. Every month we find creative ways to explore the reality of our shared mortality through a discussion topic such as:
- Your fears around death and dying
- Remembering and being remembered
- The role of your cultural, spiritual and community traditions in supporting you (or not) around your inevitable death and dying
- Greening your death
- How death and dying can impact your people, your community and your world
